Hey
Little boy
Would you like to see
What’s in my thread or not?
It’s no ploy
It’s no gimic
It’s the chance of a lifetime to see
Something that’s
Never seen by mere mortals except me
And myself
And sweet I-hi
Oh so what do you say
Would you like to play
HGATR with me?

A 5 for all the good times, the fun I had chatting to Bob at the Mucky Pup on their reformation tour, etc.

Yeah.

I mean a 1 for Spiral Stairs obviously but I forgive Malkmus for wanting his mate in his band.

Terror Twilight haters are nuts, frankly.

As is anyone who doesn’t put Wowee Zowee top.

I like pavement, would even go as far as to say they’re the seinfeld of indie bands

I like them but Malkmus’ debut is better than any Pavement album for me. That album is a 10/10.

At last! Love Pavement. Found an old tape of CRCR at a second-hand shop years back and spent an entire Summer listening to it on a loop. Great weird sense of humour about them and really memorable but rackety songs.

My brother once played CRCR and my Mum reckoned it just sounded like a bunch of kids mucking around

5/5

Top 5 all time band I reckon. 5 great to perfect albums, bsides and demos better than the majority of other bands best work. Malkmus continues to do no wrong in my eyes.

Got Wowee Zowee on CD for my 16th birthday and have loved them since then. 5

6 weeks ago it was

This is an absolutely outrageous list of songs. Too much quality for one band.

Plus the bit in the Cut Your Hair vid with Steve Malkmus getting his crown always makes me laugh a lot

Not really listened to them in years but a great bunch of lads. Five.

Malkmus’ Sparkle Hard from a couple of years back was really good too.

Agree with Malkmus and the Jicks being better than Pavement. For me it would be Pig Lib though

Range Life is the best song to listen to when walking alone into town on a summer’s evening.

Used to absolutely love them, but never feel the urge to listen to them anymore.

4 i think.

DIS is going to end up ranking Pavement higher than the Beatles isn’t it

Calling it now, they’ll be exactly the same.
