steve, the intern, is dead. long live steve!!!!
it should come to no surprise that being of the early 30′s demographic that i am, one of my favorite, if not my favorite, bands is pavement. depending on the day it fluctuates between pavement, guided by voices, superchunk, wilco and a few others. it’s sad to admit, but i am an aging hipster. one day i woke up and was married, had a mortgage, two car payments, and a wee lad. all of this and i still feel like i am 15, at least mentally. dont think it wont happen to you, people!
hearing slanted and enchanted for the first time struck me the same way as it takes a nation of millions. it was a glorious racket that was an absolute mess, not unlike my life at the time. it sounded as if everything could fall apart at any moment, but they kept on moving forward regardless. it truly was a life affirming record. if i thought that slanted and enchanted was life affirming, then crooked rain was life changing. we’ll touch on that at a later date.
