Perfect Sound Forever: The Story of Pavement
From their inception as a distorted lo-fi pop duo out of Stockton, California, to their mid-career incarnation as a five-piece slumberpop beauty machine, Pavement were a leading force in the indie art-rock music scene of the 1990s. Perfect Sound Forever is British music journalist Rob Jovanovic's profile of the band and their quirkily dark, melodic sound and cryptic, mirth-filled lyrics. Original, eccentric, consistently tagged "noise-rock's premier sing-along band" - Pavement refused to offer a coherent blueprint for success. In Perfect Sound Forever, Rob Jovanovic immerses himself in this confusion, bringing together the stories of the people who were there as it happened.
