I fucking love pavement. Believe it or not, i once confused them with Weezer. back in the day....please forgive. Anyhow, I fucking dig their music.

Pavement, greatest band in the world, no band could ever come close to what Pavement is, the music so sacred so real, and to know they formed in Stockton CA. my home town was amazing to find out, Gary Young still living in Stockton just right around the corer from me. Even though they apart, Pavement lives on and will forever. I urge everyone to write Malkmus and the rest of the band memmbers to come out with a box set...greatest band of all time ...

What is the greatest pavement album?
>>By Modest (Saturday, 12 Apr 2003 21:32)
The above question , greatest album?Terror twighlight.It shows the band at their peak.Althogh every Pavement album is fab,TT has some of the best and most moving songs written proving Malkmus to be a brilliant song and lyric writer.Iwas lucy enough to see pavement at asecret gig in hull on wat was the final tour the occasion was very emotional bordering on spiritual as we all knew it was one of the last times we would see the band..........carl

pavement is a great band, so many great cds yeah, enough said ehre

pavement is a great great great band. Stephen malkmus's solo stuff is great too, and even preston school of industry is really worth checking out.
not too many younger people know them though, the guys i work with haven't a clue. And when i lent one guy slanted and enchanted, well, he just didn't get it. too bad.
>>By r.t. (Sunday, 20 Jun 2004 18:30)
Terror Twilight is definitely not there best album, as is written above. This might have been the album that they made at the peak of their popularity, but I prefer slanted and enchanted or Crooked Crooked rain above this album any day. Also their unofficial first album Westing (studio outtakes from the period before slanted and enchanted) is much better, maybe not sound technically, but more inventive and bright and adventerous. Still this doesn't mean that Terror Twilight is a bad album, beats all Pavement copies for me any day...
Btw, if you like the earlier work of Pavement you might also wanna go and check out the band Sammy, with the first drummer of sonic youth.... and from the same period...

another good album in the pavement vein is built to spills "keep it like a secret". It's their best album and has all the qualities that a pavement fan would like it too have. check it out. Also check out staind's newest album, it really rocks. Just joking, staind actually really really sucks/
>>By r.t. (Wednesday, 23 Jun 2004 11:53)
I actually prefer "there is nothing wrong with love" but yes when I was typing the other stuff I was thinking about mentioning Built to spill as well, and the more experimental period of the main man with Treepeople.........
>>By Campking (Wednesday, 23 Jun 2004 18:16)
hey campking, i've noticed you on a few other band discussion lists and i must say, you have excellent tastes in music.
>>By r.t. (Thursday, 24 Jun 2004 11:58)
Thanks, but the fact that you actually notice must mean that you must also have an excellent tase.. but then I noticed that also by the bands you name..... Luckely there are still some people around who like these bands....
>>By Campking (Friday, 25 Jun 2004 01:16)
tell me about it. I go to work and try to have a decent converstation about music and i just get frustrated because these people don't even know what i'm talking about. I even lent slanted and enchanted to this kid (actually young man), and he didn't get it. to him punk is good charlotte. I'm not saying that pavement is punk, i'm just making a point that these people hanve't a clue as to what they are talking about.
>>By r.t. (Friday, 25 Jun 2004 03:04)
I have read all what u guys have written and yea of course pavement are great, but thing is thats annoying me, pavement are a carbon copy of sonic youth and the velvet underground. sometimes when ive got pavement on, i can hear sterling morrisons guitar big time, but, pavement are one of my top fav bands. and as for tt being their best album, fuck me, what age are u guys, its the legendary slanted lp, any rightminded persion can detect this, but then again, free speech and all and right to one's opinion.
>>By as usual (Monday, 13 Dec 2004 20:42)
Pavement was introduced to me by one of my greatest friends and they have
become one of the greatest bands to me....there are others in competition,
but Pavement is definently in the lead
>>By the art of looking sideways (Monday, 17 Jan 2005 05:46)
I agree with you, um, As Usual on "slanted..." being their best but to say that they're a carbon copy of sonic youth and the velvets is really naive. Of course their heavy influences are evident as is the influence of the fall and so many other bands but , come on! Haven't you listened beyond that record? They did so many different things after that. Come on now!
>>By thom (Wednesday, 19 Jan 2005 20:37)
I've always liked Westing the best, it's just so amazingly raw and fresh. Even after all these years I think Pavement have yet to write a catchier song than You're Killing Me.
>>By Stinkfist (Thursday, 31 Mar 2005 21:45)
I think Crooked Rain Crooked Rain is my favorite actually. eh, they're all good. currently listening to Brighten the Corners actually. Anyways I agree that saying Pavement is a carbon copy of sonic youth and velvet underground - I listen to both of those bands, and even though they are from the same genre, I've got to agree with Thom - its different! so many different things have happened with these bands! you simply cannot say they are the same!
question for readers - favorite pavement song all time?

IN THE MOUTH A DESERT
>>By thom (Sunday, 3 Apr 2005 01:08)
... and as far as Built To Spill are concerned, I have a thing for Perfect From Now On
>>By thom (Sunday, 3 Apr 2005 01:13)
Mhm- I like them. They've got some songs I can't stand, but in general, why not.
>>By Dorinen (Sunday, 3 Apr 2005 21:05)
I would choose slanted and enchanted today, but that could be westing Tomorrow.... depends on my mood(swings)

I'm finding Wowee Zowee incredibly hard to get into
>>By spikee (Monday, 11 Apr 2005 06:18)
keep working at it. you'll get it eventually. and the world will be a better place...
>>By thom (Monday, 11 Apr 2005 17:19)
I think Wowee Zowee is great!
