Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks announce fall tour; Bob Nastanovich announces day job

Man, I love me some “Gold Soundz” as much as the next guy, but thank god that abysmal Pavement reunion is over. And don’t pretend like I’m out of line and just not a big enough Pavement fan to have “realized the significance” and blah blah blah. No. You know I’m right. That shit sucked. Plus, now Malkmus can get back to doing what he most loves to do: confounding people’s expectations left and right with all of his pretty-spotty-but-still-generally-cool-and-interesting Jicks records. In fact, I hear there’s a new one coming out soon. Why don’t you tell us all about it in ‘graph 2, Nobodaddy?

Hey, thanks Nobodaddy, and welcome back folks! Okay, the new Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks record, Mirror Traffic, is hitting streets in the UK on August 22 via Domino and August 23 in the US via Matador. And after you’ve had a few weeks to learn all of the non sequitor lyrics by heart and master all of the drum fills on your air-drums, the band will hit the road in North America for a month’s worth of theater dates so that you can scream the words and air-drum along with the band to your heart’s content. You know, kinda like Bob Nastanovich.
