Guided By Voices – “Class Clown Spots A UFO (New Version)”

“Class Clown Spots A UFO” is the title track from Guided By Voices’ forthcoming LP, though it’s been knocking around under different titles, and via different recording sessions, for a very long time. (Rolling Stone pegs the first iteration as an ’80s-era Pollard composition titled “Crocker’s Favorite Song,” which is a very long time ago!) This “(New Version)” is a free download here, opening with a daydreaming melody that would sound great in the hands of a sunglassed horn section, or in the hands of a bunch of iconic drunks. You get the latter, here, and it’s a good look:
