I just got it in the mail the other day...but it went to my house so I couldn't listen to it until I went home yesterday being that I'm at college...so far I dig it...and the poster is mucho cool
#44
I'm probibly gonna pick it up soon. My posters don't really reflect my musical tastes all that much, so it'll be a pretty cool bonus.
#45
aww man i'm so bummed i missed all that bonus stuff from the pre-order. I just bought my copy of the Wowee Zowee re-issue at a local music shop, but nonetheless, it kicks ass!!

Long live the awesome band Pavement!!

ive heard one EP by these guys and i wanna pick up a cd real bad, which should I get?

Either get the reissue of Slanted & Enchanted or Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain.

They're just a wonderful band with amazing lyrics.

I got their DVD, Slow Century and I just figured out Stop Breathin' is supposedly about Tennis. Or that's what my brother said. But still, Tennis? Stephen Malkmus = God.

the first Pavement album that got me hooked was the deluxe reissue of Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain... It's got A LOT of awesome bonus songs to really get a feel for who Pavement is and what their music is all about... After that, I got hooked on the reissue of Wowee Zowee, and personally, it's my favorite album, and it hasn't left my cd player since i bought it

According to the Crooked Rain Crooked Rain Deluxe Edition liner notes:

"Stop Breathing" A civil war song

"Although it's about war, there is a deliberate double entendre about volleys and tennis. The title is supposed to be being shouted by some challenger who's losing in the U.S. open. You know how they start gettingn upset at the slightest noise? Well, he's telling the crowd to 'Stop Breathing'. Literally."

Ahh yes, have you seen the notes for 'Range Life'? Its something about how Stephen Malkmus wants to fight Billy Corgan and then he says just kidding.

Billy Corgan hates Malkmus for that song. It's actually pretty funny. Smashing Pumpkins didn't want to perform Lollapalooza one year because Pavement was performing. Pavement had do dropout. They played next year though.

i'm about to get the first two cds, i read somewhere that Wowee Zowee was their best ablum, and i know/heard Slanted Enchanted and Crooked Rain Crooked Rain were their best also, i'm getting the first 2 nonetheless, but do you guys think Wowee Zowee's the best?

#56
Right now Wowee Zowee is my favorite, but their first two are considered to be their best.

"Stephen Malkmus' solo stuff ain't bad either."

I actually prefer his solo stuff to some Pavement records. Face the Truth is a great, great record and he's a lot of fun live.
#58
malkmus' first solo album is just awful. there are a few gems like 'church on white', but they don't save the album. i remember pig lib blowing me away back in 2003. and face the truth was a good album, but got old really fast.

as for pavement, i finally got around to getting the wowee zowee reissue today. didn't feel so bad about getting it after finding the pacific trim ep was thrown in with it. i remember reading scott said something when the slanted reissue came out, that they had enough songs to keep doing reissues all the way up to brighten the corners.
#59
Wowee Zowee: Sordid Sentinels [Reissue] has been rocking my speakers since i got it back in November haha... I can't put it down. Disc one is solid with the original full length album and a ton of extras... Disc Two follows suit with some sweet session songs, a nice BBC session and an AWESOME live in Australia show - plus some more songs.

In total, the reissue is 50 songs and absolutely rocks... so many genres, so many great lyrics and catchy riffs. Pavement really rocks the house when it comes to reissues - clearly, they're doing it for the fans.

You'll LOVE Wowee Zowee!!!

I just bought Sordid Sentinels as a little pre-christmas gift for myself today. So far I have Slanted and Enchanted, CRCR (neither of them reissues) and Sordid Sentinels.. I love them all.

if you like slanted, you should really look into getting the reissue. i think the watery, domestic session songs on disc 2 of the reissue are better than slanted

Yeah you should have gotten the reissues, just because of the extra songs, outtakes and live performances.

i picked up crooked rain crooked rain recently and it's so excellent. pavement are what i thought indie rock was supposed to sound like back when i was younger and had no idea about anything. just amazing.

i'm also really really digging the song major leagues. o btw what's you guys' interpretation of that one? i'd be interested to know b/c i hear hints of priests and christianity and that whole ballgame first base, second base kinda thing.

Heh, same here. I guess it's one of those albums that continue to grow on you.

Although I still think Wowee Zowee is their best album.

I like them, and so do Pitchfork, which is one of the few instances in which I've agreed with Pitchfork on anything.

I really like it TBH, but then I got into pavement in a wierd route to most people

Brighten The Corners, then Terror Twilight, then just played those to death for about 6 years, then I got Crooked Rain Crooked Rain when I got recommended it on here (can't remember who, but it was good advice ) and then finally Slanted & Enchanted.

So songs like Major Leagues, Carrot Rope, Spit on a Stranger are in my personal top 10 of Pavement tracks (as is the Carrot Rope b-side Harness Your Hopes)

I never got any Malkmus solo stuff, not sure why, but if it's similar to the stuff on TT then I might have to make an effort to do so...

Wow, I just got Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain and it's really great. My favourite tracks are probably Stop Breathin' and Cut Your Hair, as of right now. I just love lo-fi music. It makes the music become more alive, in a way.

Wheres the love for the track they did for that Dutch TV thing back in '97, "For Sale: The Preston School of Industry"?

Oh yeah.
