Pavement

Pavement was an American indie rock band that formed in Stockton, California in 1989. The group mainly consisted of Stephen Malkmus (vocals and guitar), Scott Kannberg (guitar and vocals), Mark Ibold (bass), Steve West (drums) and Bob Nastanovich (percussion and vocals). Initially conceived as a recording project, the band at first avoided press or live performances, while attracting considerable underground attention with their early releases. Gradually evolving into a more polished band, Pavement recorded five full length albums and nine EPs over the course of their decade-long career, though they disbanded with some acrimony in 1999 as the members moved on to other projects. In 2010, they undertook a well-received reunion tour. more »

I heard what you said 
The leaders are dead
They're robbing the skies 
I can hear their followers cry:
Ah...ooh...starlings in the slipstream
Ah...ooh...starlings in the slipstream
Ah...ooh...starlings in the slipstream
Ah...ooh...starlings in the slipstream

The language of influence 
Is cluttered with hard hard see's
And I put a spy-cam in a sorority
Ah...ooh...darlings on the split-screen
Ah...ooh...darlings on the split-screen
Ah...ooh...darlings on the split-screen
Ah...ooh...darlings on the split-screen
Ah...ooh

There's no women in Alaska
There's no Creoles in Vermont
There's no coast of Nebraska
My mother, I forgot
Slavic princess with a rose in her teeth
Do you suppose she would bite you if she could?
Insane cobra split the wood
Trader of the lowland breed
Call a jittney, drive away
In the slipstream we will stay
Stay away, away, away, away, away, away, away, away, away
