Class Clown Spots A UFO is an old GBV song, known as Crocker's Favorite Song on King Shit and the Golden Boys. There's also a version on Suitcase 3. The clip I heard from this newest version sounds fantastic...

ah ok, knew the title had been around for a while, didn't know it was that song. actually not the *worst* idea pollard's had -- to go back and rework some of those older tunes?

tylerw, Wednesday, 28 March 2012 15:10 (five years ago) Permalink

he's been doing that for ages -- tractor rape chain was one of those!

Paul Smon (La Lechera), Wednesday, 28 March 2012 15:47 (five years ago) Permalink

right, yeah! see, he should write songs, let them sit around for a decade or so, and then re-write them. instant classics!

another great one on the new gbv - Roll Of The Dice, Kick In The Head, 46 seconds of perfection.

two months pass...

Hoping Class Clown is their "no fuckin' around" reunion album.

Just now getting around to listening to it. Less fuckin' around than Let's Go Eat the Factory, but still not a terrible lot of umph to it. So this is the sound of old dudes making choons, I guess.

i like it a lot more than factory so far in general, but sprout's tunes are worse than ever

one month passes...


With a pair of albums already out this year, Guided By Voices releases another new effort this fall — and plans to put out a new album every six months after that, guitarist Tobin Sprout says.

The Bears for Lunch is due in November, and the band is set to begin work on the next LP, English Little League, in August.

The Bears for Lunch track listing:

"King Arthur the Red"
"The Corners are Glowing"
"Have a Jug"
"Hangover Child"
"Dome Rust"
"Finger Gang"
"The Challenge Is Much More"
"Waving at Airplanes"
"The Military School Dance Dismissal"
"White Flag"
"Skin to Skin Combat"
"She Lives in an Airport"
"Tree Fly Jet"
"Waking Up the Stars"
"Up Instead of Running"
"Smoggy Boy"
"Amorphous Surprise"
"You Can Fly Anything Right"
"Everywhere Is Miles From Everywhere"

i'm glad pollard is adhering to the one-album-about-airplanes-every-four-albums rule.

good tracklist

I saw them in Philly on their latest tour, and they played "Hangover Child". It was nothing special, but who knows, could be another grower. In general they were very good live, though, way tighter than on the reunion tour (until the 2nd encore or so, but it usually gets ropey way earlier).

So far Class Clown > Factory for me; but both are victims of Pollard's refusal to self-edit, unfortunately.

I don't think the leak of English Little League I just acquired is complete (it's missing some tracks and includes some b-sides, so whatever), but "Islands (She Talks in Rainbows)" is Tobin's best song in a dog's age.

i had no idea gbv albums COULD leak. i thought they released them 35 seconds after recording them.

My old band used to do "big boring wedding" and "tractor tape chain"
