Marble Valley

Last night me & Chris went to see Marble Valley. They’re Steve West from Pavement’s side project. I don’t know if he intended to be the comedy Silver Jews, but that’s what they are. Silver Jews + Flight of the Conchords. The support bands were identikit young men trying to sound like the Arctic Monkeys, but minus the wit.

  1. I saw Marble Valley open for SM & the Jicks years ago in West's hometown of Charlottesville, VA. They were a weird band. It was a nice 3/5's Pavement reunion that night since at the time Bob Nastanovich was managing the Jicks. I didn't see David Berman there though. Malkmus basically just told stories about his UVA days.

    I had a weird question for you, since you were the only British zinester I remember who posted semi-often on WMZ – are there any zine libraries in the UK at the moment? I googled and yet again all I found were a few infoshops who seem to stick to political zines. This was the case when I put out my last zine a few years ago as well.

    Likewise, if you're looking for any zine libraries in Richmond, VA to donate your zine(s) to, I can provide the info.

  2. I don't know of any zine libraries outside of info centres. There are a lot of anarchist zines here (not really my scene), perzines tend to be N American dominated it seems.

    Next month after the Alt Press Fair & Brighton Zinefest, I was planning to send some copies over to various zine libraries anyway, so the address would be nice.
