Pavement prepare for UK Tour with Quarantine
Quarantine The Past: The Best Of Pavement comes out on Domino on Monday the 8th of March 2010. This fully re-mastered 23-track compilation will be available on double LP, CD and digital album formats. The tracks span the entirety of Pavement's career from 1989 to 1999, from the scratchy and mysterious sounds of their early vinyl-only releases to the rich, multilayered warmth of their final recordings. Although the compilation does not include any unreleased material, it definitely goes deeper than the "hits."
Quarantine The Past lands in stores as Pavement embark on their first live appearances since the fall of 1999. Dates begin in New Zealand on March 1 and continue through Australia, UK and Europe over the spring and summer, with 4 dates at London’s Brixton Academy in May and the band curating and performing at All Tomorrow’s Parties. To celebrate this the band is holding a Guess The Track Listing Contest. The album contains 23 tracks, all previously released, and the first track is "Gold Soundz" (MP3 of remastered version below). Prizes will be awarded as follows:
FIRST PRIZE for the track listing closest to the actual track listing
SECOND PRIZE for the most imaginative track listing
FOUR RUNNERS-UP in either of the above two categories (4 runner-up prizes total)
First prize will be a pair of tickets, with flights and hotel rooms, to see Pavement at Central Park Summerstage on Tuesday, September 21, 2009. Plus a complete set of Pavement 12" vinyl. Second prize will be having your track listing pressed up in a special limited-edition vinyl double LP for Record Store Day (April 17). You will receive 5 copies of your best of selection. Plus a complete set of Pavement 12" vinyl. Runner-up prizes will be complete sets of Pavement 12" vinyl.
