'Cure for Pain: The Mark Sandman Story.' - Mark Sandman (September 24, 1952 – July 3, 1999) was an American singer, songwriter, musical instrument inventor and multi-instrumentalist. An indie rock icon and longtime fixture on the Cambridge music scene, Sandman was best known as the lead singer and slide bass player of the band Morphine.
Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain, Pavement - Pavement's second full-length was less quirky and diffuse than their first and even yielded their career's only modest hit, "Cut Your Hair." Best of all, sweetly catchy songs such as "Gold Soundz" and "Range Life" showed that Pavement were more than just smirky indie rockers.
