i wasnt aware that top of the pops invited bands on indepedant lables to play.


I thought they were on Sony at that time?

EDIT: see what you did there! I still count MSP as indie, it depends how you define indie.
Oh, what a shame as she slipped in the rain, that poor dancing girl, she won't dance again.

Well, not Indie but the greatest TV moment is the Pistols on the Bill Grundy show.

And Jarvis Cocker at the Brits.

I agree with the jarvis cocker incident (is that indie?)


you do redeem yourself by mentioning the jarvis/jackson thing, but you just sound like an arse saying that about a really quite good band

Well all of Crooked Rain Crooked Rain, and Slanted and Enchanted...and Wowee Zowee for that matter. But some good songs: Cut Your Hair, Summer Babe, and Rattled By the Rush. Those are each from one of the mentioned albums, respectively.

i'm overly-qualified to answer this, but i'll try.

Their first album, Slanted and Enchanted is innovative, influential, and possibly their best. Now this is pretty counter-intuitive, but S&E is all these things partly because it sounds like it was recorded with a four track on an airplane. Therefor I would not make it the first Pavement I listen to.

Crooked Rain is the fan favourite, but while not as lo-fi as S&E, it is still relatively low budget. At first the mediocore sound quality makes it sound a little sparse, but repeated listens reveal dense, layered guitar arrangements. The use this can-meets-sy guitar mashup to explore every style from country to jazz to cali-pop. (and theres always a bit of a guitar hero mentality somewhere in there)

The other albums, while extremely good, aren't important. If you're doing this by dl'ing individual tracks, i'd reccomend these as the more accessible songs

Spit on a Stranger
Stereo
Carrot Rope
Cut Your Hair
Rattled by the Rush
Grave Architechture

and these as less/slightly less accessible

Zurich is Stained
Unfair
Our Singer
Summer Babe
elevate me later

I was going to list Carrot Rope and Elevate Me Later, but I decided to keep it to 3.

Also Best Friend's Arm is a really cool song.

Don't know what the best is, but your video made me think of another one that amused me.

It's not that indie, and it's not that great, so the connection to this video is really thin. It's another TOTP performance.

I don't belive I have never seen that! That warrants a big old LOL.

Elevate me Later, Range Life, Gold Soundz and more are all unbelievable from CRCR. For the new Pavement fan (or possible fan), get that. The 2-disc new edition has some revelatory b-sides and stuff on too. Strings of Nashville, for example.

Wowee Zowee has some brilliant songs too - Father to a Sister of Thought, anyone?

I really love Pavement.
