….ripping at the seams due to massive, sudden nerdrection syndrome:
According to the oddly large-type article, Steven Malkmus and Co. will reunite for Matador Records 20th Anniversary, though no plans for Pavement activity past that. I file this under the same category I filed the Pixies reunion: Meh. While I did dig me some Pavement (favorite song: ‘Give it a Day’), I hold no illusion that an almost 10 year gap is just what the band needed to further their group efforts. I’d rather a band have a good discography that ends too soon, than a mediocre one extended far beyond it’s shelf date.
