Recorded sometime between January 13th-20th, 1991 in Stockton, California.

Steve Malkmus: guitar, vocals; Scott Kannberg: guitar, vocals; Gary Young: drums; Bob Nastanovich: percussion; Mark Ibold: bass.

Produced by Pavement.

Maybe he thought I was intent on razing the hall to the ground. Well. The firebug in me has shrivelled and withered with age.

Then again, perhaps he was just encouraging me to give up smoking.

PAVEMENT: ZURICH IS STAINED from \”Slanted And Enchanted\” LP (Matador / Big Cat) 1992 (US) PURCHASE SLANTED & ENCHANTED: LUXE & REDUXE
