The Second Coming, Not

The Pixies reunion was pretty amazing, clearly one of the most exciting things to happen in rock in the last few years. A Pavement reunion would be pretty rediculous (although Face The Truth makes it clear that a solid SM solo career is a pretty good compromise). But this is just too much. The only return to music that really matters, Jeff Mangum, was announced today on Pitchfork. Then, several hours later, Apples In Stereo had an exchange back and forth with the man himself, denying the story, and it looks like the denial is sticking. My God, that's the kind of emotional roller coaster I just don't have it in me to ride.

Jeff, we need you man, now as ever.
