Additionally, I saw SM & the Jicks in Tulsa the other night, and it was great. It was my first time seeing them, and it was hard - for everyone there - to not focus entirely on Malkmus. It made me wish I would've seen Pavement when they were together. Dude is just a solid performer.

I was standing directly in front of Mike Clark's keyboard. That made it easy to focus on the band. That light show was pretty great, yeah?

oh shit...my wife and I were standing in front of him as well. I'll be honest, I didn't pay nearly as much attention to the lights as I did when we saw Pedro the Lion at the same venue back in February.

There wasn't much to it, but they nailed the vibe. Pink Floyd circa 1966.


:thumbsup:

Listening to Mirror Traffic now.

Great idea, dad

okay, so I went to the beginning of this thread, and momentarily paused listening to Mirror Traffic in favor of S&E.

I've only watched Slow Century once, and I though I haven't read the 33 1/3 on WZ, I should. I do hope someone writes a definitive - official - take on Pavement someday.

I feel like I connect more with earlier Pavement - even early SM & the Jicks - because I wasn't listening to Pavement when they were making albums, and it makes me very nostalgic for that time, like I wish I would've because I would've loved them as much as I do now had I given them the chance. I listened to so much Pearl Jam, and didn't make room for many other bands up until my late twenties, sadly.

better late than never though...

Sparkle Hard and Mirror Traffic are the only Jicks albums I've listened to, and I like them quite a bit but I definitely like the Pavement records better. Especially Slanted and Wowee Zowee.
They're probably the band I've listened to the most these last couple months.

Face the Truth and Pig Lib are outstanding SM & Jicks albums. I'd even throw the S/T in there as well. Trojan Curfew sounds like a cousin of Type Slowly - to my ears, anyway.

I'm giving Flaked on Netflix another chance and finding that I really like the show. Malkmus's score is fantastic. Kind of blew my mind that Cast Off was demo'd in the first or second episode.

I'd love an OST from this series, wouldn't you guys? The musical passage below is a nice departure from his usual guitar noodlings. I kinda get lost in it.
