‘Wowee Zowee’, originally released by Matador in April 1995 on the eve of Pavement’s infamous mud-bespattered mainstage appearance at Lollapalooza, began life as a controversial release. Fresh off the success of ‘Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain’ with its chart-topping Modern Rock hit ‘Cut Your Hair’, the band went into the studio and came out with a deliberately chaotic and eclectic album that sounded nothing like its predecessor. With influences from the Groundhogs to the Frogs, Captain Beefheart to the more obscure mid-80s central California hardcore bands featured on Maximum Rock’n’Roll comp ‘Not So Quiet On The Western Front’, Wowee Zowee confused critics and alienated fans.

“A masterpiece” – Rolling Stone

“This album – and this band – is monument to camaraderie, absurdity, and the beauty of creation for creation’s sake” – Stereogum
