Haven't had a chance to watch these yet (as I'm at work), but I look forward to seeing them this evening.

Cool videos. Thanks, U2pomo.

Malkmus really tries hard to look like he doesn't give a fuck, doesn't he?

Or does he actually truly not give a fuck?

I thought you called me U2porno for a second there. lolzosaurus sex

Having not really seen many Pavement performance videos before, they look like they would have been highly entertaining to go see live back in the day. Tell us of the old days, Laz. Did you take a stage coach to go see Pavement while listening to music on a phonograph?

Ha! That really does look like I said U2porno. That's funny.

I agree, it does seem like they put on a good show. I like the contrast between Malkmus just standing there off to the side like the uber-slacker and then the other guys jumping around goin crazy. Also, their drummer looks to be quite talented. I have no clue what his name is though.

Therein lies the musical mystery that is Pavement.

What was cool about seeing the band is that every night was different. Sometimes they would be stoned out of their gourds, some nights were really funny, sloppy, tight, transcendent, etc. I saw all but one of these shows from right in front of the stage, used to get to the venue way early to be right in front of SM and his axe.

The Jicks are much more professional, and it's still a great time, but you kind of know what you're going to get.

I guess nobody noticed this. Not a very good record, in my opinion, but Pavement/my thoughts on Brighten The Corners notwithstanding, Matador is a label more than worth supporting, and their Buy Early, Get Now campaigns have consistently been the best promotion in the entire industry. From Pavement to The New Pornographers and all the way to Chicago's own The Ponys, this shit is where it's at. Brilliant stuff all across the board. Support a label looking out both for its artists and for the people putting money in the till.

Keep thine eyes peeled. The packaging alone'll be way beyond worth the investment.

A brilliant, brilliant album. I can only imagine what you think of Terror Twilight.

To me, if you don't like Wowee Zowee and BTC, you don't really like Pavement, but whatever.

I wasn't sure they were going to give this one the remaster treatment, so this is somewhat surprising, but great news.

"Brighten the Corners: Nicene Creedence Edition"

GREAT title.

What about the voice of Geddy Lee? How did it get so high? I wonder if he speaks like an ordinary guy.

I know him. And he does...

Laz, I don't really hate the last two records (although I admit that I have hated them, in the past). I just don't think that they're anything special; for me, it was pedestrian material from one of my favorite bands.

However, after years and years and years of listening to these records, I feel that there is no room for debate--Pavement peaked several dozen miles above the rest of its output with the outrageously brilliant Wowee Zowee. Holy fuck, I love that record. It is the band's zenith.

Hey, anybody know when they recorded that version of "For Sale: Preston School of Industry," in Holland, or wherever it was? I would love a pristine-quality version of that on the Twilight reissue, if that was indeed actually recorded, during that era.

I can understand why people don't care for the very mellow Terror Twilight, but BTC just seems like pure Pavement to me. It's like the wildness and erratic nature of WZ (my favorite too, by the way) reeled in just enough to make a coherent album. It's still quirky, though, it has epic tracks and catchy rockers...the lyrics are amazing. The only downside is that there are two Stairs tracks out of twelve songs, though I don't really mind Date With IKEA.

What don't you like on there? I think Stereo, Shady Lane, Transport is Arranged, Old to Begin, Type Slowly, Embassy Row, Blue Hawaiian, Starlings of the Slipstream, and Fin (Best. Solo. Ever.) are all great.

I think that they're all pretty much okay--no more, no less. I haven't had, and therefore listened to, the record in quite a while, so I'm looking forward to revisiting it, for this Matador reissue. We'll have to see how much, if at all, my opinion's changed, over the last few years. I'm definitely looking forward to it, I'll tell you that.
