whereas Pavement are not as popular as lots of people on here think they are.
you're thinking of Lady Gaga and Barbra Streisand.
just sayin' is all, sure Pavement I perfer but Phoenix have got several years of great catchy dancey diddies. Malkmus is also pretty boring live from when I've seen him, sure Pavement as a whole I hope is different (when I see them) but phoenix just seem so happy to be alive, yet alone playing to an audience that utter joy spread to the crowd as you star dancing.
Pavement sure are boring.
Right from the very begining Pavement were never and clearly still aren't that popular in the usofa. UK and Europe is a different matter though. Bit like Pixies in that respect. Both broke over here and are still bigger over here. America's loss.
and tried to catch both. Seeing Pavement was cool, as I never thought I'd get to, but Phoenix performance was just phenomenal, the best I've seen them . In the great scheme of things Pavement are the better band, but it's just Phoenix's time, and who can begrudge them? A great band and a great performance. And yes, they had an unbelievably huge crowd.
and at their respective shows, Pavement (good a band as they are) were dull as ditchwater and Phoenix were fantastic.
Not aware of the superiority.
pavement are getting on the reuinion bandwagon to make some cash and have no new songs
phoenix are playing current new music that is easily assessable.
simple as that
Most people who liked Pavement the first time around (almost 20 years ago) probably have kids now and don't go to things like Coachella
How many people have read The Da Vinci Code compared to, say, The Road?
While, I'm here, though, I would love someone to explain Phoenix to me. Sounds liek a load of old wank to me.
If you don't understand it, its up to you to learn.
But none of the rest.
They're both great bands anyway, so it's all good.
