Stephen Malkmus And The Jicks - 'Stick Figures...

Malkmus And The Jicks are a bit like your dad’s weekend band. Imagine Malkmus setting up the garage, buying in the beers, stretching his Silver Jews tee over his tiny pot and gritting his teeth because Jick Mike Clark is late again. “This is...

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks - 'Mirror Traffic'

Malkmus, Stephen & The Jicks : Dark Wave

Malkmus, Stephen & The Jicks : Dark Wave

Stephen Malkmus : Stephen Malkmus

Sentimentality probably isn't high on Stephen Malkmus ' list of favourite feelings. Here's a man, after all, who once described himself as, "A cold, cold boy with an American heart", and who's more likely to draw inspiration from the smallprint...
