But more to the point: in the Superchunk movie “Take the Tube” they ask Mac what his favorite new band is, and he says “Pavement” but he says it with three syllables, like the word “vehement” — he breathes the end of the first syllable as if to create a second syllable, second of three not first of two – and this is nothing like, in sum, Miriam Makeba in the “When We Were Kings Movie” breathing hard and rhythmically into the mic or Sudan Archives Monday night at Swedish Hall who did a bit of that as well, or better.
I’ve always wondered why he said “puh” + “vey” like in “oy vey” and “ment”. What he meant?
Oh, this might be related: Terry, TMW Terry My Wife, Terry Acebo Davis and I or me and Terry or Terry and I I forget the grammer part we stopped at Les Claypool’s wine tasting room Saturday last after the Patty Barber show in Occidental — we went thru Guernville, Sebastapol not quite Point Reyes nor Inverness not quite Stinson — no room at the inns – and Forestville. Isn’t there a Pavement cd that references Gilman street and Forestville, like “924 Forestville”? Did I mention that the server from Pachyderm Cellars or what not looked like Roger Daltry so Les apparently calls him “Pinball”.
edit to add, like a minute later, so only about 6,000 people read the beginning wrong version: at minute 54 or so ina version of take the tube (which I call “sick transit gloria”) he says that thing, but then Jon Wurster goes into a long riff I think on fake bands from Iowa so they were just joking the dude had asked about nirvana and if that changed everything. he asked laura ballance what is it like to be the new queen of grunge?
I cannot go to the city tonite — on the account of age — but I can watch 14 minutes Superchunk Tiny Desk Concert here on my laptop.
