Pavement Goes Overground

Barney Hoskyns, MOJO, June 1999

NOBODY COULD accuse Pavement of being rock archetypes. Take the group’s frontman Stephen Malkmus, who spends much of his spare time flyfishing virgin rivers and scaling 18,000-foot mountains in America’s Pacific northwest. Or guitarist Scott "Spiral Stairs" Kannberg, who, when he isn’t tending his meticulously manicured garden in Berkeley, California, is usually to be found on one of the Bay Area’s many golf courses.
