Ray & Remora cover Pavement's 'Gold Soundz': Watch the video with Jeff Goldblum, Kim Gordon & more


As Stephen Malkmus once memorably sang, “You can never quarantine the past.” But he didn’t say anything about covering it– so L.A. duo Ray & Remora, a.k.a.  Dan Crane and Amanda Walker, have taken on Pavement’s classic “Gold Soundz,” from 1994’s Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain (which coincidentally turns 20 this month, if that doesn’t make you feel like a T-rex.)

R&R also grabbed a few famous friends to make cameos in the video for the song, including Malkmus, Kim Gordon, actor Jeff Goldblum, longtime Beastie Boys collaborator Money Mark, Weezer’s Scott Shriner, Inara George of The Bird and the Bee, and Mike Viola of The Candy Butchers.

Billy Corgan slams Pavement, calls them 'the death of the alternative dream'

BILLY-CORGANImage Credit: Michael Loccisano/Getty ImagesDespite all his rage, he is still just a rat in a 140-character-limit cage.

Smashing Pumpkins frontman and general unstoppable quote machine Billy Corgan took to his official page over the weekend, unleashing a series of persnickety butterfly-winged tweet bullets after receiving the news that he would be sharing a festival bill with the recently reunited Pavement at Brazil’s Planeta Terra Festival next week.

Below, his thoughts, presented in unexpurgated real-time form:

1:50 PM Just found out SP is playing with Pavement in Brazil. It’s gonna be 1 of those New Orleans type funerals

1:51 PM I say that because they represent the death of the alternative dream, and we follow with the affirmation of life part.

1:53 PM funny how those who pointed the big finger of ‘sell out’ are the biggest offenders now…yawn. they have no love

2:00 PM by the way, we’ll be the band up there playing NEW songs because we have the love xx

It’s so Mothra vs. Godzilla, if Mothra’s band had no other original members, and Godzilla kind of never cared about Mothra in the first place! Or as my colleague Simon says, “It’s like Billy just finally got around to hearing the third verse of ‘Range Life” … again.

But what do you think, readers—should this (generally one-sided) feud continue, or should they meet up backstage in Sao Paulo, have a pitcher of caipirinhas, do some capoeira, and finally call it a truce?

Pavement at Central Park: Oh, stormy night

PavementImage Credit: Cory Schwartz/Getty ImagesCrooked rain (and lightning, and rolling sonic booms of thunder) ripped through New York’s Central Park last night, but Biblical weather couldn’t keep reunited indie icons Pavement from playing their second of three sold-out nights at the Park’s spacious Summerstage. It did, alas, force them to give their gold soundz an unplanned intermission.

That the crowd—a good half of them fortysomething guys who could not have looked happier to be there if they were handing out free, Viagra-dusted diamonds—actually booed when the band was forced to temporarily evacuate for their own safety was more disappointing than their brief absence from the stage. Really, dude? You waited ten years to see them again, and now you’d rather see Spiral Stairs zonked by a giant forked lightning bolt than hold out for thirty minutes while the storm passed?

Sunday was densely packed with can’t-miss acts, culminating in the one-two-three punch of the reunited Pavement, Thom Yorke with Atoms for Peace, and headliners Gorillaz. Read about all those shows plus several more after the jump.
