  Pavement Music and Discussion
Pavement, greatest band in the world, no band could ever come close to what Pavement is, the music so sacred so real, and to know they formed in Stockton CA.
I'm not saying that pavement is punk, i'm just making a point that these people hanve't a clue as to what they are talking about.
I have read all what u guys have written and yea of course pavement are great, but thing is thats annoying me, pavement are a carbon copy of sonic youth and the velvet underground.

 Pavement   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Goodbye to the pavement, hello to my soul : Possibly one of the first concept album of the 80's and filling in some of the themes previously touched on the Human League's 'Travelogue'.
There are two strains of thought that course throughout 'Penthouse and Pavement'...
I'm sick of being misread : After the haphazard, awkward beauty of Pavement's first three albums, the initial overriding impression of 'BTC' to fans of the band was that the sound had been smoothed over to its detriment.

When the early Human League split up in 1981 the founder members, Martin and Ian, asked an old friend, Glenn Gregory, to be the lead singer in their new band Heaven 17.
They recorded their album, 'Penthouse and Pavement', at the same time as Phil Oakey's new version of the Human League were recording their album 'Dare'.
Penthouse and Pavement was, like Dare, also very successful.

 From Pavement to penthouse
A GOOD rock band is so often defined by the quality of its vocalist and front man. After all, they’re responsible for delivering the essence of a song’s lyrics and therefore hold the key to the heart and soul of the music.
Stephen Malkmus’ voice, poetic lyrics and engaging stage show were not only a distinctive characteristic in Pavement, but in the whole genre of American alt-rock.
Obviously the group dynamic prevalent during Pavement’s heyday has gone but Malkmus was never one to flog a dying horse; which is precisely why he’s still with us today.

 Silence Is A Rhythm Too
Their debut LP was called Penthouse And Pavement and was released the same year as the Human League's breakthrough album "Dare".
It features a lot of the same synth sounds as it's peer, but stepped it up even further by incorporating the brilliant playing skills of a young unknown guitarist by the name of John Wilson.
It's his tremendously funky bass popping that makes the songs on the A (Pavement) side of the record, and particularly the title track Penthouse And Pavement (12" Version), so freaking good.

They think that by marginalising the ordinary fan, the ordinary player, the ordinary club, they can someone improve the quality of the game a whole.

The first Heaven 17 album I ever bought was the US only compilation "Heaven 17" which took track from Penthouse and Pavement and the band's second album The Luxury Gap.
So, a few years later when I picked up this on import, it was like discovering the band all over again.
Overall Penthouse and Pavement stands as a really enjoyable slice of UK blue eyed post punk funk, rough in spots.

As much as I adore tracks like Penthouse & Pavement and At The Height Of The Fighting, which included "guest artiste" John Wilson on bass and guitar (who was he anyway?!), other tracks such as Play To Win are a total shambles.
Overall this is their strongest album as subsequent outings tried a little too hard to jump into the charts, though to be fair they didn't do too badly with Temptation, etc.
But that is not to detract from BEF (Martin and Ian) who with the aid of an actually better singer in Glen Gregory (after rescuing him from his job in a butchers shop) - made an extremely impressive debut album "Penthouse and Pavement",

They Continued Forth with "i'm Your Money", "at the Height of the Fighting" and "Penthouse and Pavement" and their Career was off to a Swift Start.
Who could forget the timeless "Let Me Go", the groovy "Play to Win", the happenin' "Penthouse and Pavement", the funky "Fascist Groove Thang", the furious "Temptation", and "Crushed by the Wheels...", and on and on...

 PLEASURE ONE (h17 story)
At the time I did'nt know how influential they'd already been, one superb album already under their belts, the classic PENTHOUSE AND PAVEMENT(melody maker album of the year 81) and two cults albums as the original and best HUMAN LEAGUE, REPRODUCTION and TRAVELOGUE!
It was suprising that none of the singles had become UK top 40 hits.
1984 saw the release of HOW MEN ARE, it was not as instantly memorable as PENTHOUSE AND PAVEMENT or THE LUXURY GAP but it proved to be a real grower.

After disproving all accusations of synthesizers as limited vehicles of expression, the B.E.F.ers got Heaven 17 (named for a band mentioned in A Clockwork Orange) underway with Penthouse and Pavement.
The American Heaven 17 release deletes three tracks from Penthouse and Pavement and replaces them with the top-notch pop soul of "Let Me Go" and "Who Will Stop the Rain," both from the UK edition of The Luxury Gap.
Glenn Gregory's gruff vocals aren't immediately mellifluous, but they suit the material and ambience perfectly.
