To quote Charlie Todd, who sums it up pretty well: “Holy shit. This new MTV Music site is UNREAL. If you have, like, a few days to kill, go check it out. They basically put every video by every band ever on the site…. I’m in heaven! I used to hit record on my VCR before going to bed each Sunday night to tape 120 Minutes in hopes I would catch some of this stuff.”
That’s exactly what I used to do back in ’88, ’89. And Malkmus and the gang started making videos during my non-cable-havin’ college years, so I’ve never really seen any of these Pavement videos—except for maybe “Cut Your Hair.” Once, at a friend’s house.
