It’s not entirely clear what the intended title of this track is. The original packaging for Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain has the title of this song clearly written as “Silence Kid” in the handwritten track list on the back of the album booklet, but due to a smudge on the back tray liner, the title looks like “Silence Kit”. In Stephen’s handwritten commentary for the album in Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain: L.A.'s Desert Origins, he has the title clearly written as “Silence Kid”, and the album booklet also refers to the song as “Silence Kid” several times, but the back cover has it written as “Silence Kit”. Malkmus has also apparently written it as “Silence Kit” in more recent set lists. In the song itself, he clearly sings “Silent kid”.
Pavement are an American indie rock band that formed in Stockton, California in 1989. For most of the period to 1999, the band consisted of Stephen Malkmus (vocals, guitar), Scott "Spiral Stairs" Kannberg (guitar, vocals), Mark Ibold (bass), Steve West (drums) and Bob Nastanovich (percussion, vocals). During that period, and since, they have frequently been described as one of the most influential bands to emerge from the American underground of the '90s. Show more ...
