Stephen Malkmus And The Jicks

After Pavement announced they were going on hiatus at the end of 1999, the status of one of America's finest indie rock bands was a mystery for the first half of 2000. It became clearer that summer, however, when it was revealed that both singer/songwriter/guitarists Stephen Malkmus and Scott Kannberg were preparing solo albums. Malkmus was particularly busy during that time, performing new songs with Kim's Bedroom -- a one-off group that also included Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon and Jim O'Rourke -- that spring in Holland, and recording them at studios near his hometown of Portland, Oregon. Working with him were the Jicks, aka Portland indie rock veterans drummer/percussionist John Moen and bassist Joanna Bolme. Moen had played with the Fastbacks, the Dharma Bums, and his own group, the Maroons; Bolme played with the Minders and worked as an engineer at Jackpot Studios, where Pavement's Terror Twilight was demoed and parts of Malkmus' new project were recorded. Initially, Malkmus intended to release the album on his own or through a local label, but when his old label, Matador, received a copy, they agreed to release it. By the time Malkmus officially confirmed Pavement's breakup in the November 2000 issue of Spin magazine, Matador announced it was releasing the album -- originally titled Swedish Reggae and then changed to Stephen Malkmus -- in winter 2001. The Jicks made their live debut that January at New York's Bowery Ballroom and spent the rest of the winter and spring touring the U.K. and the U.S., including a gig at South by Southwest with labelmates Mogwai and the reunited Soft Boys. Former Pavement percussionist Bob Nastanovich acted as the Jicks' tour manager and Elastica leader Justine Frischmann -- another friend of Malkmus' -- joined the band as a guitarist for selected dates. On 2003's darker, trippier Pig Lib, the Jicks shared credit with Malkmus, reflecting the album's more band-like feel. Released in 2005, Face the Truth -- on which Malkmus embraced domesticity with a whimsical feel missing from his work since Wowee Zowee -- featured Malkmus with and without the Jicks, who also supported him on tour that summer. On 2008's Real Emotional Trash, the Jicks welcomed former Sleater-Kinney drummer Janet Weiss into their fold, giving the album's psychedelic free-for-alls greater heft. Mirror Traffic followed in 2011, featuring Beck stepping in as producer and Weiss taking her last bow as the Jicks' drummer. Moving to Berlin just before the release of Mirror Traffic in 2011, Malkmus would use this uprooting of his family as the catalyst of inspiration for his sixth album. Returning to the studio in 2013, Malkmus and co. enlisted the production skills of former Pavement live engineer Remko Schouten to record 2014's Wig Out at Jagbags. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi

Great bio, but don't forget the Jicks' keyboardist and backup guitarist Mike Clark, who joined the group before the recording of Pig Lib.

that's part of what make this brand of genius so appealing - this guy has spent the last decade making music that is as meaningful to me (and those who know) as Zeppelin and Pink Floyd were to my older brothers and the masses who applaud the "genius" of Roger Waters and such ...and this guy does it without being a pretentious dick!
