Same Place the Fly Got Smashed


Same Place the Fly Got Smashed

"Same Place the Fly Got Smashed" is the fourth album from Dayton, OH's Guided by Voices. Often said to be a concept album about alcoholism, the album displays bandleader Robert Pollard's maturing songcraft and increasing interest in lo-fi soundscapes.

In James Greer's book "Guided by Voices: A Brief History: Twenty-One Years of Hunting Accidents in the Forests of Rock and Roll", Pollard calls this album his favorite lyrical album citing the lyrics for "Pendulum" as "my favorite lyrics I've ever written."

The "You brought me down, you and your family. I did not!" sample at the beginning of "Airshow '88" came from the movie "Shattered Dreams". The made-for-TV movie came out in 1990 and starred Lindsay Wagner.
