What a discography before you get in to the masses of additional stuff


I’ve met you so obviously I believe you can.

Ah, looks like it was on the old boards so can’t find it now. My Top 10 Pavement songs
was filled up with Westing tracks and b-sides

Everyone hating on Terror Twilight but isn’t it the only one where he didn’t let Spiral Stairs stink up his album?

Or in a thread starred by an ex user.

Oh, look at this. Thank you wayback machine

10/10 and its still not as good as Wowee Zowee and Brighten the Corners (my favourite).

Good choice for today. The ultimate beers in the sun/park album. It’s a 9.

Spiral is fine, his tracks on Brighten the Corners are two of the best songs on the album

Wowee Zowee is dull, tuneless nonsense. Westings is worse.

Pavement + tunes = :heart_eyes:


Spiral is the WORST and they are two of his worst songs. Stop getting Pavement wrong!

absolute nonsense


Total shite of a song.

weirdly i’ve had this song in my head all morning already for some reason

Spiral Stairs songs that I will accept are good:

‘Two States’
‘Mussle Rock (Is A Horse In Transition)’
‘Kennel District’
‘Winner Of The’


Date w/ IKEA is very decent.


I used to like it but I just skip it these days. Would have preferred if both his songs were dropped from that album and ‘The Hexx’ was included instead.

Kennel District is great. I think it won the best SS song poll in the Pavement HGATR thread


I am well overdue a Pavement retrospective! Listening to this for the first time in years, bloody hell what an album!

The first Pavement album I heard and therefore still my favourite. 9.
