AUDIO: Pavement's Stephen Malkmus (1996)

Ira Robbins, Rock's Backpages audio, December 1996

The Pavement front man talks about the avoidance of self-consciousness and planning; their live capabilities; the recording process; his and Scott Kannberg's respective roles in the band, and the curious band dynamics; the seriousness of their fans; his move to New York, and the curiosity of a band where everyone lives in different places.
