In honor of the CRCR 10th anniversary...

so which of Pave's infamously tossed-off covers are your favorites??
Include any from the reissues, b-sides, Peel sessions, even live stuff traded or seen first hand.

I'll probably get a good tongue-lashing from the Echo & the Bunnymen fans, but I've really been digging the "Killing Moon" cover from the Major Leagues single (er, e.p?)

I think I've heard a stillborn version of Joy Division's - "Disorder".

Jesus -- are there good quality MP3s of these covers?! I didn't know they did these (except for Killing Moon, which yes, is great)

Didn't they do "The Classical" by The Fall? I've never heard it though...

i'm trying to remember if pavement did "let the good times roll" or if it was just malkmus

cinniblount (James Blount), Wednesday, 27 October 2004 22:36 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

I saw Malkmus do "I Will Dare" once and it was great but really left me wishing that Pavement had done it.

They did do the Classical, with completely different lyrics. It's surprisingly good. It's the only post Wowee Pavement I've felt the need to own.

malkmus's take on 'death and the maiden' is awful

their take on the clean's 'odditty' is pretty cool though

This is my favorite one:

I liked Malkmus' version of the Coloured Balls "That's What Mama Said."

I've only heard their cover of 'New Face In Hell' by The Fall.

Expressway to Your Skull, Something, and um they do a pretty good 7 Chinese Brothers.

Who sings on Tuesday's Gone? That's my favorite but the Malkmus doesn't sing lead on it. Anyone know who does?

danh (danh), Thursday, 28 October 2004 23:16 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

Tuesday's Gone was done by the Crust Brothers, which was Malkmus with Silkworm.

The lyrics to Ruthensmear's "Golden Boys" were actually written by Darby Crash (thank you Ira Robbins).

Ooh, forgot "No More Kings."

Rickey Wright (Rrrickey), Friday, 29 October 2004 08:10 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

"I'm goin' out...I'm gonna find myself a....GIRL/Find myself a woman, I won't give up, I won't give up in any way, shape, or form..."

I can't recall who wrote this or what the title is but I know it was a cover.

That is the Buzzcocks "Love Is Lies"... great song. It's on Love Bites

Thanks. Didn't have my copy of "Appetite For Deconstruction" handy.

When I saw this thread title I could only think of the Tindersticks cover of Here, but I think I got the wrong end of the stick somehow.

i don't refer to him as "the Malkmus" by the way. that was a mistake
