Pavement Reunite, Mini Clash Reunion, and Trews to Release Live CD/DVD…
The scoop on a mini Clash reunion and a live Trews cd/dvd after the jump, but first…
Pavement are reuniting. Matador Records confirms Pavement will do a tour beginning September 21 in New York. No other dates have been announced and they do not plan to make an album. Pavement broke up in 2000.
The Clash members Mick Jones and Topper Headon have entered the studio together for the first time in 27 years.
The duo re-recorded a version of The Clash’s classic ‘Jail Guitar Doors’ for the charity of the same name, and were joined on the recording by Billy Bragg and four former prison inmates.
Jail Guitar Doors, the charity, was set up by Bragg in 2007, and aims to provide prisoners with musical instruments to aid their rehabilitation.
The Trews will release a live CD/DVD package, Friends & Total Strangers, on Oct. 6 through Universal Music Canada.
It was recorded at Toronto’s Glenn Gould Theatre earlier this year and features the band playing acoustic versions of their songs. It includes previously unreleased and brand new songs like first single “Sing Your Heart Out” and a cover of Joe Tex’s “The Love You Save.”
The DVD features behind-the-scenes footage, videos for the singles from 2008′s No Time For Later and other footage from the studio and the band’s previous tours.
But perhaps the bigger news is that the boys will be touring Ontario this fall…and NOT stopping in Kingston…
