Range Life

Back to Pavement today and their 1994 beauty Range Life- country stylings, half arsed vocal, Malkmus taking potshots at Smashing Pumpkins and Stone Temple Pilots and some killer lines based on life on the road- ‘you gotta pay your dues before you pay the rent’.

I think it’s quite funny too that the video bleeps out the word ‘fuck’.

I love this fantastic comment at Youtube, someone missing the point ever so slightly…

‘I had never heard this song before but it honestly the vocals sound out of key and along with some of the chords.  The vocals sound like a dying cat when he try’s to hit the high notes.  It is what it is and maybe they have better songs but the musicianship on this is terrible.’
