Jeepers! Matador Releases (Gosh and Golly!) Expanded Wowee Zowee! Shucky Darn!

Since David Berman’s been all kinds of awesome with the Silver Jews lately, you gotta wonder what the fuck Stephen Malkmus is doing. Staring at a wall? Wondering if he’s to blame for boys in girls’ pants? Sometimes an indie rock icon gets depressed.

Enter Matador Records, accompanied by various trumpets and patchy facial hair... issuing a proclamation from an unnecessarily long piece of parchment: On November 6, there shalt be a third installment in the biannual Pavement deluxe reissue series. I dub thee, sir: Wowee Zowee: Sordid Sentinels Edition!

Of course, this “series” can only last as long as the Pavement catalog... and Matador still lists ’em on the “Active Roster”... !!! Wink, nudge?

Either way, loyal minions shall be graced with a buttload of liner notes, live tracks, outtakes, etceteree, etcetera. Oh, we ain’t kidding.
