Lexo and the Leapers

Indie rock and roll heroes Guided by Voices had mostly abandoned their four-track methods by 1996, but frontman Robert Pollard even now had a hankering for the lo-fi hype that produced GBV an underground sensation. Another within the growing group of Pollard’s aspect projects, Lexo as well as the Leapers features Dayton, OH’s the Tasties portion as the audio behind Pollard’s short, intense pop music. The Tasties contain Gale Bonham (electric guitar), Terry Lerma (bass), Luis Lerma (drums), and Nate Farley (electric guitar). Farley and Luis Lerma acquired previously used Kim Offer in the Amps and Farley would turn into a full-time person in Led by Voices in 1999. The consequence of the Pollard-Tasties cooperation is a far more fresh, straightforward rock audio than acquired previously made an appearance in Pollard’s comprehensive catalog. The group’s initial EP, the six-song INQUIRE FURTHER, made an appearance on Rockathon Information in 1999 because the second section of Pollard’s Fading Captain Series. “Good Coming in contact with,” a monitor from INQUIRE FURTHER, appears within a re-recorded type over the slickly created Led by Voices record Isolation Drills. That is proof that Lexo as well as the Leapers will be the lo-fi response to the noisy, crushing approach used by Led by Voices after their 1997 record Mag Earwhig. Whether Lexo as well as the Leapers had been put together simply for a one-off discharge or being a long lasting collaboration continues to be to be observed. While another discharge had not made an appearance by 2001, Pollard may abandon projects and then reinvent them years afterwards.
