Pavement might do reunion gig in 2009

    Despite Stephen Malkmus’ success with his Jicks and his rather excellent Real Emotional Trash (listen here), he still has Pavement on the brain — as do his former bandmates — and they hint at the possibility of at least a one-off reunion gig.

     

    Guitarist Scott "Spiral Stairs" Kannberg recently told EW.com: "Matador is having a 20th anniversary party soon, so maybe we’ll try to do something for that. The only hurdle might be getting everyone to drop what they’re doing, but I’m sure the excitement of playing again will make it OK."

     

    Malkmus added that maybe ten years from now might be more appropriate, similar to what Led Zeppelin did last December, while Bassist Mark Ibold says all he needs to do is relearn the songs and they’re golden. "What obstacles stand in the way? Learning the songs again. I’ve actually dreamt that there was a reunion show and I couldn’t remember the songs." [NME]
