Rattled By The Rush

Pavement was a band that I did not get to see live before they disbanded. They pretty much rank in my revolving top three artists with Uncle Tupelo and The Minutemen. Though they've not been together for 7 years, their cool-ass record label, Matador, has been reissuing their discs. Every two years or so, the world gets to revisit the noodling guitars, absurd lyrics and shout-outs that defined the band. And the new sets are oh-so-cool! So far, "Slanted and Enchanted" and "Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain" have been reissued in deluxe, 2-disc editions containing upwards of 50 tracks.

Now, at long last, their greatest (in my humble opinion) album, "Wowee Zowee" gets the deluxe treatment! I urge you to give them a try. I can't guarantee that you'll love them as I do, but even P-Girl has learned to sing along to "Range Life" from Crooked Rain.

Favorite Song? "Father To A Sister Of A Thought"

Favorite Lyric?

Getting off the candelabra
We call her barbara
Breeding like larva
She rabble rousing
Dental surf combat
Get out those hard-hats
And sing us some skat
Blade gushers gush
Chained and perfumed
I don't need a minister to call me a groom

from "Rattled By The Rush"

November 7 it arrives!

MoBster? I totally thought it was MoNster.

"I'm a braniac with a veiny sack
resting on the brow of Erika Eleniak

Cock Mobster
It's a porn utopia
A cornucopia of warm fallopia"

These are the lyrics? I've been missing out. Thanks for the info, Galoot. I feel enlightened.

Would have loved to see you stuck in the muddy field. You know Toyota now sells a minivan that is all wheel drive! We know how you love Toyotas.
