Band have had talks to play a festival show this year

Former Pavement guitarist Scott Kannberg has said that the band may reform soon – and that their booking agent has had talks with Coachella festival chiefs about them performing at the event.

He did, however, warn that despite negotiations having taken place, it was more likely that the band would reform after 2009 had finished.

“I don’t see why not, you know, it could be a fun thing to do, go and play your favourite songs every night,” he told music tabloid Loud And Quiet. “Everything’s fine now [between the band members].”

Kannberg added: “2009 would be our 20-year anniversary too, so that’d be a good time to do it, but I think that’s too soon, it might have to be pushed back later.

Coachella keep asking our booking agent but our booking agent’s pretty strong. He’s waiting for the right number, I think.”

Coachella 2009 takes place between April 17 and 19 in Indio, California, with the likes of Blur and The Killers rumoured to be on the bill.
