VinylPull No.2

Since the summer is ending and the fall approaching I thought I would talk about one of my favorite autumn albums–Pavement’s Wowee Zowee. Since it was released in April of 1995 I consider it a perfect candidate for a fall album. April is my favorite autumn month and April is also my favorite color. There may have been a girl in my fourth grade class named April with tremendous flatulence.

Bullshit Klaus.

I just associate this album heavily with the fall because that is when I really dug into it–September and October many, many years ago when I was a tight, pink college student. Back then, of course, I listened to it on c.d. I can remember immediately being blown away by the second track, “Rattled by the Rush”–still one of my favorite Pavement tracks, or tracks from any artist for that matter.

Side note: I just realized I have Coltrane’s My Favorite Things spinning on the turntable, which in a way is appropriate since Wowee Zowee is one of my favorite albums. But why in the blue fuck didn’t I put on Wowee Zowee. One will never know. I do like to put on Coltrane whenever I am doing any type of work but right now it seems silly, pretentious, floppy and possibly full of hate. But I am not changing it now regardless of your smirks and backdoor insults.

Back to brass tax. I found this album in the used stacks at a record store that was then on Ohio State’s campus, Used Kids Records. It was in great condition and only cost cheap $$ as the Beastie Boys would say. Specifically, it was priced at eight dollars American, a great deal considering it is a two-disc, seventeen track, three sided album–and one of the greatest albums of all time, in my opinion. It is one of those albums where maybe track 10 is your favorite and next month track 5, then holy shit what about track number 8. It is so good and lengthy that it takes quite some time to digest it all and as soon as you think you have you hear something new that somehow was missed before.

Stylistically it is all over the place, from very melodic, to experimental to even punk I think–which many have tried before but possibly no one has ever pulled it off so well. Maybe this could be considered Malkmus’s White Album.

If you are not familiar with Stephen Malkmus I think this is a great place to start, really any Pavement Album would be great, then move onto his prolific and unbelievably stellar solo career.

I really want a copy of Malkmus’s Pig Lib on vinyl but it is hard to find and I think impossible for cheap $$.

See you fuckers next time and there is plenty more to talk about when it comes to the brilliance of Malkmus.
