Pavement Magazine articles

Pavement magazine started out in 1993 and  ceased publishing in late 2006, after 13 years. I wrote for them for a number of years (approx 1997-2002), as Local Music Editor.

Pavement never had a website, as far as I know (I tried to persuade the editor Barney MacDonald of the need for one back in the day, but he didn't see why he should give away his content for free, from memory), so these articles have never appeared online.

I am scanning them and converting the text to make them available for research purposes only, and they are NOT for commercial use.  All copyright remains with the author. Articles in chronological order. Enjoy!
