To coincide with the 2010 reunion tour and the release of Quarantine the Past: The Best of Pavement, Matador is releasing a new L(ow) P(rice) Vinyl series with special affordable introductory editions of all five Pavement albums (plus the Watery, Domestic EP). On 120-gram vinyl, and containing mp3 coupons!Originally released in April 1995, fresh off the success of Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain, the band recorded a deliberately chaotic and eclectic album that sounded nothing like its predecessor. With influences from the Groundhogs to the Frogs, Captain Beefheart to the more obscure mid-'80s central California hardcore bands, Wowee Zowee confused critics and alienated fans. Yet it became a fan favorite over time. The songs have a darkness that now seems appropriate and with Bryce Goggin at the mixing desk, the production was the band's most rocking to date.
