Pavement legend Stephen Malkmus has taken to the streets of Paris to perform ‘Spit On A Stranger’ for French filmmakers La Blogotheque.
The video was filmed a few months ago in an idyllic cafe in the heart of the French capital during simpler times that feel like an absolute lifetime ago now but it is an absolute delight to watch Malkmus deliver a glorious rendition of ‘Spit On A Stranger’ which opened their most recent record Terror Twilight some 21 years ago.
The Portland band are booked in to play their first set of shows in 10 years this summer at Primavera Festival in Barcelona and Primavera Porto, which have both been postponed from late May until August and September respectively.
However, there is still a high level of uncertainty regarding these shows and whether fans will have to wait even longer to see Pavement take to the stage together again.
For now though, enjoy Malkmus’ solo take on a Pavement classic:
