Back in time

20 April 2022

Californian slacker rockers PAVEMENT, led by the team’s captain Stephen Malkmus released their much lauded debut album SLANTED AND ECHANTEDon 30 April 1992,
20 years ago today.

SPIN magazine wrote: “Who do these enchanted boys conjure up? Forces of nature like Captain Beefheart, Swell Maps, Pere Ubu, the Fall, Thinking Fellers, Union 282, Giant Sand,
and the Minutemen. But while I can definitely hear the echoes of these influences, what really brings these bands to mind is that, like Pavement, they open up space. On Slanted, Pavement makes things happen where nothing happened before.

Pavement takes you to oil wells and houseboats, deserts, and starscapes, a city spread out like peanut butter, no man’s land, and the place where summer ends. The lyrics fill the air as well, enigmatic and fresh, stuff about making mistakes, catching angels, listening to the radio, and waiting for your dreams to come shuffling over the horizon, waiting in a sunlight that blisters the soul.” Full review here.

Turn Up The Volume says: One of the best
demo-sounding albums ever. Vintage indie rock.

Highlight : Trigger Cut (live version)
