Biography

PAVEMENT.

Pavement mark the point when post-punk turned into alternative rock. When their first EP, Slay Tracks (1933-1969), was released in 1989, it sparked a back-to-the-garage movement in the American underground. While there were a number of hardcore and punk bands in the U.S. during the late '80s, Pavement brought guitar pop back into the underground lexicon. Combining ringing ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Sidewalking 10 Dec 2000
Format:Audio CD
The late, lamented Pavement's first LP remains one of the best debuts of the '90s. The lo-fi production is a boon rather than than a hindrance, giving the songs a suitably scuzzy sheen that doesn't detract from the fact that there are some fantastic songs in here (Trigger Cut, Zurich Is Stained and in particular the magnificent Here).

The band wear their Fall influences on their sleeve (at least three of the tracks are MES-cribs, and the sleeve bears more than a passing resemblance to Hex Enduction Hour), but who cares? The bottom line is that this is a great LP by a band that will be sorely missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep a Classic as it is ! 13 Aug 2003
Format:Audio CD
I had this album on vinyl when it first came out , and have just got this CD of the original album and can't believe it sounds so contemporary.
I had heard the American version with bsides and live stuff , which really watered down what is a great album , and a great album should not be tampered with (thankyou Nirvana , Zeppelin, Stones etc), but labels like to squeeze the last cent out of fans. Putting this album back in its original form was hopefully the work of a band that cared , they even used to prepare toast on stage for the audience !
"Summer Babe" is a pure Summer classic , "No Life Singed Her ", "Zurich is Stained ", "Our Singer " all set out the boundaries for what has become a wierd and wonderful direction for alternative music .The word "classic " is all too often over used, but this album has stood the test of time and fully deserves it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointingly unsurprising 12 Feb 2014
By Nick
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a fan of alternative music throughout my life, Pavement had always, oddly, passed me by. I'd heard Stephen Malkmus name being dropped all over the music press, as well as Pavement. Blur chucked their name about, and still I ignored.

So, finally I bought this the other day.

I can't begin to describe how disappointingly unsurprising it sounded. I can't even bring myself to do a long drawn out review. I know I'll be told to try Crooked Rain, or even Wowee Zowee, but I can't be bothered. I just pictured slackers, floppy hair, US student campuses, I mean, C'mon, weren't REM doing this in '83?!?!

The Cure, Dinosaur Jr, The Fall, Television. Heard them. Love them. They fulfill everything that Pavement seem to be attempting. And were doing it (some of them) 10+ years prior to Pavement 'breaking new ground'.

Go listen to Three Imaginary Boys (Remastered), This Nations Saving Grace, Marquee Moon, You're Living All Over Me.

This is just so stunningly over-rated. Sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars One my first CDs 19 Dec 2013
By Mr
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the first CDs I bought and although it took a bit of polishing to rip a good WAV copy for the Squeezebox streaming system I regularly still put on here and there. I am a great fan of Stephen Malkmus and Slanted and Enchanted has all the elements of Pavement and his distinctive style rolled into it. It is probably the most important of the Pavement Albums although I like Crooked Rain and Brighten the Corners a lot too.

Everybody who likes alternative US music or the Americana genre should own it.
