Pavement were an American indie rock band that formed in Stockton, California in 1989. The group mainly consisted of Stephen Malkmus (vocals, guitar), Scott Kannberg (guitar, vocals), Mark Ibold (bass), Steve West (drums) and Bob Nastanovich (percussion, vocals). Initially conceived as a recording project, the band at first avoided press or live performances, while attracting considerable underground attention with their early releases. Pavement recorded five full length albums and nine EPs over the course of their decade long career. Though they disbanded in 1999, they undertook a well received reunion tour in 2010. Briefly entering the mainstream with the single “Cut Your Hair” in 1994, Pavement were a successful indie rock band. Rather than signing with a major label, they remained signed to independent labels throughout their career and have often been described as one of the most influential bands to emerge from the American underground in the 90s. During their career they achieved a significant cult following.
