Secondhand Sunday: Pavement ‘Major Leagues’

When I listen to Pavement, I still get chills down my spine. I remember hearing them for the first time when I was 12 years old. Stephen Malkmus looks super foxy in this video ladies so watch out. ‘Major Leagues’ was one of their last videos off of Terror Twilight a record I hold very near and dear to my heart. Pavement and golf, does it get any better? (or amusing?). Here’s hoping to one day they decide to reunite. The world needs it.
