Yes, quite Strawbs!
Yeah, you’re right about that Pavement track being Lou Reed like. Quite a lot of their stuff has that laconic avant garde feel and Steve Malkmus’s vocal style owes a debt to Lou. Occasionally charged with ripping off the Fall, from Mark E Smith himself no less, but I think that’s a bit cheap. Over many albums they’ve always demonstrated a kind of uniqueness, and I’ve been enjoying listening to them again recently.
