Here’s a nice write up the Pajamas got in The Stranger recently for a show for KEXP. The show was great by the way.
(Sunset) My girl DJ Sharlese over at KEXP digs deeper than the much-celebrated Northwest-’90s era, and instead has a keen ear for Seattle-area bands from the previous decade. I first heard the Green Pajamas on her Audioasis show and have been kinda fascinated with them ever since. In 1984, the Green Pajamas brought the paisley underground to Seattle by way of mellow, guitar-driven psychedelic pop and have made um, 32 albums since. It’s probably “Kim the Waitress” you know them by—a moony little number of earnest, unrequited lust. Though I just haven’t had the days or weeks (months?) to listen to their entire discography, playing G-PJs-songs roulette has included: Xanax-coated power pop, fuzzed-out indie, sleepy love songs, and a valiant cover of the most boring Christmas song, “O Holy Night.” With Tango Alpha Tango and Campfire OK. – Emily Nokes
