    So yeah...here we are...

    i have to say i much prefer pavement's work to malkmus's solo stuff...i don't even know why since they're very similar...like the pixies and frank black...very similar...but different...

    but there are definite similarities...they're one of those bands that have indirectly influenced a lot of people...

    I adore them ... found them very hard to get into at first but once you "get it", they're great. If you've ever heard them play live they totally reinvent all their songs each time they play them, it's brilliant. Unfortunately I never got to see them in person.

    Malkmus is different on his own, lacks the sparring and jarring guitars, but the lyrical sense is very similar; total genius associative random nonsense. Still think he's excellent. They are one of the most influential bands of the last 15 years or so, there's so much "indie" music around that they practically invented! (Along with Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr of course).

    Favourite Pavement album for me is Brighten the Corners.

    Aye theyre a wonderful band...i'd agree that stephen malkmus' solo work is not as good, but its still damn good...unlike scott kannberg's unfortunately

    hes still writing great songs, but the jicks dont have the same energy as pavement did, so they suffer a little

    anybody got that new redone version of slanted and enchanted?

    has to be one of the finest re-releases ever, im generally not a fan of when theres a few bonus tracks on the end of a record, disrupts the flow, but this has an extra cd's worth of them, and theyre almost all really good, theres a gig on there, peel sessions, b-sides, early recordings...

    very generous, enough to release a rarities collection, which could have made them far more money

    was anybody suprised to see a pixies best of? they never really seemed that sort of band

    well...thats how the record companies are working it these days...

    kids will buy anything as long as it will make them look scene and hardcore...

    i was going to buy the pavement dvd a few weeks ago...it's got two live shows on and all their videos...and some sort of documentary following the band around style goodness...and it was only like £17...but unfortunately i don't even have 17 quid...
