Hahahaha.... as much as I'm such a huge Pavement sucker, gotta give 'em The Fall the props they deserve - I hear Conduit for Sale as well as Hit the Plane Down on this one. Shame on both of you, Hazel Figurine & Spiral Stairs.
Please tell me that none of you actually think that the Fall ripped of Pavement.....PLEASE!!!!!!! As much as I liked them in college, you have to admit that Pavement was covering Wedding Present songs the same year they were released. Honoring your influences, or ripping them off for material, you decide.
Get your facts together. If you got something to say do your research. This song is from the Grotesque album 1980. Pavement were still in short trousers at this time. I got nothing against Pavement, but please fuck off with the stupid comments, the Fall were there long before and of course totally original.
