New Guided By Voices song: ‘Class Clown Spots a UFO’

The reunited Guided By Voices is releasing its second album of the year next month and the band just offered the title track from that release, Class Clown Spots a UFO.

The song is actually quite old. It was originally called Crocker’s Favorite Song when Robert Pollard wrote it in the mid-1980s. The track was to be included but ultimately cut from the 1994 classic album Bee Thousand. It later showed up on GBV collectors’ sets, renamed Class Clown Spots a UFO. The song was re-recorded for the new release, which won’t be the last GBV album of the year. In January, Pollard and his mid-90s GBV lineup released Let’s Go Eat the Factory.  The band is finishing its third album this year, The Bears for Lunch, which is due in November.
