I think the interesting thing about Crooked Rain that seems to have made a lot of Pavement fans uncomfortable was that it wasn’t their precious little band anymore. This band that they’d followed for a few years — some of them even before Slanted and • 55 • B R YA N C H A R L E S Enchanted — had always been the fans’ band. It’s not like it was a secret or anything like that because there was always people there. But it was the deﬁnition of a cult following. And just all at once — really sort of based on not only what we were doing but also most signiﬁcantly the effect of Nirvana on the music industry — all of a sudden all these people, mostly young people, were turning their attention to underground acts.
The Memphis versions were radically superior. Walleye was a good guy and he came through with tight pieces. But the Easley guys were total pros. They’d been doing this shit since the Big Star days. Some of the songs they put to tape were already live staples. They’d been in Pavement • 33 • B R YA N C H A R L E S setlists for a year or more. Also ﬂoating around were the songs they’d done with Walleye earlier that year. Those tunes had a different feel. They were more off the cuff. There’d been no plan for them.
Corgan still had that innocent twinkle in his eye but was showing signs of the hubris that would characterize his downfall. Corgan was pissed about the Crooked Rain song Range Life, the one that went out on tour with the Smashing Pumpkins, nature kids, I/they don’t have no function, I don’t understand what they mean and I could really give a fuck. Corgan always wanted to be huge. He made no bones about that. But about the only thing he had on Kurt success-wise was that he’d porked Courtney Love ﬁrst.
