sorry that you spent time on typing all that,javro.
what I meant is the band name is the same as a GBV song title,not named after a GBV song.
Pavement was formed in 89,so you were close.
clue:it`s a song from Alien Lanes,don`t spend time writing up every song from it though.
I wonder if GBV knew that was Pavement`s old name or did they just pick a title randomly.September 26, 2001 at 12:45 pm #66494
thank the lord for copy and paste…..September 26, 2001 at 12:48 pm #66495
why did scotty call himself ss?September 26, 2001 at 3:54 pm #66496
good question Javro,I don`t know.
the answer to my question is Straw Dogs.
what bands does Malkmus admire the spirits of?
just take some guesses and I`ll give more clues later.October 24, 2001 at 4:07 pm #66497
No one guessed that last question,so I`ll give the answer:Silkworm,Royal Trux,Sleater Kinney,MBV,Bis,and Ghost.
Here`s a new one:who is the guy who directed alot of Pavement`s videos married to?
