“Senator” (Live On Fallon) (Video)

    Stephen Malkmus took his Jicks onto Jimmy Fallon’s program last night, busting out the Mirror Traffic single “Senator” without the references to “blowjobs” but with ample guitar heroics. The thing that’s probably most disappointing for Pavement heads is how professional this is: You can’t imagine Pavement going in and doing a remarkably professional version of any of their songs, and then glad-hand with the host afterwards. Though dude did at least shred that final solo behind his head. Malkmus and company also performed a bonus track called “Surreal Teenagers,” which is below.
