GBV's first release was the EP ''Forever Since Breakfast'' in 1986, which [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness was recorded in a professional studio and had a harmony-laden folk-rock sound not far removed from]] Music/{{REM}}. However, the EP sank without a trace, and Pollard grew to regret it, deriding it as "sterile". From next year's ''Devil Between My Toes'' on, GBV became a purely studio band (to accomodate Pollard's day job as a teacher), and gained its SignatureStyle: [[MinisculeRocking short songs]] written at [[ArchivePanic a blindingly fast pace]] recorded in a lo-fi manner (usually to a Portasound 4-track), and drawing influences from what Pollard called "the four P's": PunkRock, {{Pop}}, PsychedelicRock and ProgressiveRock (PostPunk, [[TheBritishInvasion Pthe Pbritish Pinvasion]] and [[GarageRock Pgarage Rock]] also provided an influence). The material released during this period tended to only circulate among friends and family members.

* ThrowItIn: Technically it's "keep it out" - the band accidentally erased part of one of the guitar lines in "Hardcore UFOs" and decided not to re-record it.

* AppropriatedAppellation: ''Vampire On Titus'' is supposedly a reference to Bob Pollard himself: He was living on a street called Titus Avenue and overheard someone disparaging him as "the vampire on Titus".

The band's "classic" Pollard-Sprout-Mitchell-Demos-Fennell lineup announced a reunion in 2010, and true to their prolific reputation they released six albums between 2012 and 2014 before breaking up once more. They announced another reunion in 2016 with a lineup that initially consisted of Kevin March in his third stint for GBV on drums, plus newcomers Bobby Bare Jr. (the son of CountryMusic legend Bobby Bare) and Nick Mitchell (no relation to Mitch) on guitars and Mark Shue on bass, before Mitchell was replaced by long-serving post-classic era guitarist Doug Gillard. The reunion included a tour and a new album, ''Please Be Honest''.
