Harness your hopes

We're not far away now from the Pavement one back around, with angular best of Quarantine The Past released on March 8th and the tour getting underway at Auckland Town Hall on March 1st (full dates here) And according to one source, this is being given a vinyl reissue to coincide:

Filthy Little Angels are celebrating the reunion with Show Me A Word That Rhymes With Pavement, an ever expanding compilation of covers out FOR FREE on the self same 1st March. Among those so far confirmed, with streaming samples on the label site, from our back pages are Cats & Cats & Cats, Ace Bushy Striptease, Mascot Fight, Benjamin Shaw and The International Karate Plus, while Jack Lewis and Idlewild's Rod Jones also offer their services.

We gather Dan Ormsby, increasingly 'and your granny on bongos'-like frontman of 4 Or 5 Magicians, is planning to follow up last year's Our Band Could Be Your Life tribute weekender at the Brixton Windmill with a Pavement covers/tribute night on May 10th, with Ace Bushy Striptease and The Muscle Club involved. Those probably won't be the last of them either.
