The ‘90s reunion bandwagon shows no sign of slowing down in the early days of 2010, and Pavement is one of the latest bands to capitalize on the trend. The slew of live dates announced by the band have been selling out fast, and now the inevitable best-of album is set to follow.
Quarantine the Past: The Best of Pavement will be released by Matador on March 9, and will be available as a mid-priced double LP, CD and digital release. No unreleased material is included on the record, but songs spanning 1989-1999 will feature, and Matador is re-releasing the band’s back catalog on low priced vinyl to coincide.
The track listing for Quarantine the Past hasn’t been announced yet—and for good reason. Matador is running a competition to guess the 23 tracks that will be included, and has various prizes on offer, including tickets to see Pavement, complete with flights and hotel rooms, at Central Park in New York in September.
