Stephen Malkmus by Laura Crosta
Pavement closed a five-night New York run this past Friday. After a one-off show at Brooklyn’s Williamsburg Waterfront, the band headlined four sold out shows at New York’s Central Park SummerStage. Pavement closed its 29-song set Friday by inviting out its longtime producer Bryce Goggin to play keyboards on “Range Life.” After hearing Goggin’s work on Pavement albums like Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain and Wowee Zowee, Trey Anastasio tapped him to produce Phish’s Farmhouse and Round Room and to serve as an engineer on Undermind . Goggin also worked on Trey Anastasio’s Trey Anastasio, Bar 17 and Seis de Mayo, as well as Page McConnell’s Page McConnell and Marco Benevento’s Me Not Me and Invisible Baby.
In a 2003 interview, Pavement guitarist Stephen Malkmus discussed Goggin’s work and his connection to Phish. The article is now live on Relix.com.
