Following their eight-year hiatus, Ohio lo-fi gods Guided by Voices re-formed to release January 2012's Let's Go Eat the Factory. Not only was it just a "Bob Pollard and some other dudes reunited" version of GBV, but also their classic 1993-1996 lineup featuring co-songwriter Tobin Sprout and longtime collaborator Greg Demos. Not even six months following the return to form of that album comes Class Clown Spots a UFO, another 21-song collection of the kind of slapdash '60s-influenced two-minute pop songs the band was spitting out in its heyday. While two new albums in a single year might seem a bit much, news follows of a third new album on the way from the band, Bears for Lunch, due in November of a very productive 2012.
Release Date: 11 June 2012
