Album artwork for Class Clown Spots A Ufo by Guided By Voices

limited single on blue vinyl. 'class clown spots a ufo' is the title track from the new album by guided by voices. ridiculously catchy, melodically-complex, shot-through-with-melancholia, the song serves as a kind of sadder and wiser riposte to xtc's 'making plans for nigel' as performed by the hollies. if that makes any sense at all (it will when you hear it, hopefully). the album class clown spots a ufo is classic gbv and is the best thing the band have recorded since the last album by the legendary dayton, ohio rockers. that's not meant facetiously: the last thing guided by voices recorded was the rapturously received 'let's go eat the factory', and 'class clown spots a ufo' ups the ante raised by that stellar effort, both in terms of recording fidelity (boring!) and songcraft (not boring!) one could argue there's more depth and variety here than on 'alien lanes', that there are better songs here than on 'bee thousand', but that's an argument no one's ever going to win.
