Stephen Malkmus Takes Down A “Senator”

By: Julie Gerstein / October 14, 2011

Next to my own personal ’90s rock God Evan Dando, Stephen Malkmus of Pavement comes a close second. “Senator,” the new video from Malkmus and his band The Jicks, features Jack Black as corrupt Senator Danner, up for re-election, but equally pulled toward a steady diet of cocaine and cattle prods (aren’t we all?). The video also stars “Office Space” boss guy Gary Cole, and a cameo by my friend Todd (BRAGGING) as the curly-haired campaign manager. [YouTube]
