The finals hiatus is over. I’m going to try to crank up the posts and get this thing finished before school starts again.
Pavement was one of the greatest bands of the 1990s, built around the dual guitars of Stephen Malkmus and Scott Kannberg (Spiral Stairs) and literate, quirky lyrics. The band, called the best band of the ’90s by many critics, split in 1999 and the members went on to other projects; most publicly Malkmus released several solo albums. In 2010, they regrouped for a small reunion tour.
Rod Stewart gained fame in the late ’60s and early ’70s as a member of The Jeff Beck Group and Faces as well as a solo artist, recording hits and classic songs with each. Stewart has taken on a number of genres including early British Invasion pop, proto-metal, glam, folk, disco, soft rock, and standards. Also, my mom is in LOVE with him. Happy mother’s day.
