I’ve been resisting the temptation to write about the Pavement reunion. Resisted until now, at least, because whilst them playing shows in Austin or New York or Lamar, Nebraska is kind of interesting in a “Pavement reforming and not doing any shows in the UK? Well, that’s nice” way, they’ve just announced a show at Brixton Academy on May 11th, 2010, which is rather more interesting for me.

Some Pavement, Yesterday

But serious, one show?

Look chaps, when The Pixies reformed they did four shows there and they sold out at around 1 Planck Time. So, come on boys, pull your fingers out and do some more shows, eh?

But it will be fun to see them live again. I only saw them once, at a Reading Festival when they had a power cut on stage and had to spend 10 minutes goofing around. Not that they had any trouble doing that, mind you. A great, great band, managing to be shambolic and musical and lyrical in quite a way no-one else has matched. Except The Fall, of course.

Anyhow, tickets go on sale on Friday from the usual moneygrabbing shysters ticket agencies. Good luck!
