david coverversion: pavement vs. echo & the bunnymen

pavement is to the fall as the vines is to nirvana. only not as obvious. still they proved that indie could make it in a major label world. even if it was indie noodling from dudes who were way too stoned. they 'ironically' gave a cover of echo & the bunnymen's 'the killing moon' for the ep 'major leagues'. i first heard 'the killing moon' in the movie 'donnie darko' and have been meaning to look into echo's back catalog but haven't gotten around to it yet. pavement's takes also comes from the matador comp 'what's up, matador?'. first time listeners looking to get pavemented should check out the deluxe reissue of 'crooked rain, crooked rain' first. bring joints.
