Silver Jews were an indie rock band from New York City, formed in 1989 by David Berman along with Pavement's Stephen Malkmus and Bob Nastanovich. Berman remained throughout and was the only constant member. During the last few albums, Cassie Berman became a regular member of the band. They disbanded in 2009. Berman was living in Hoboken, New Jersey with two University of Virginia friends, Stephen Malkmus and Bob Nastanovich and recording discordant tapes in their living room.
Silver Jews' earliest incarnation was the college band Ectoslavia, formed by future Pavement founders Bob Nastanovich, Stephen Malkmus and frontman David Berman at the University of Virginia in 1989. An exercise in joyous noise, the band disbanded after graduation and the three friends moved to New York to take up various jobs - Nastanovich, a bus driver, and Berman and Malkmus, art museum security guards.

I bought Silver Jews’ third album American Water at a now-defunct record store in lower Manhattan called Kim’s. I was 15, maybe 16, and hoped-as I always hoped when I bought something at Kim’s-that the clerks might interpret my selection as a cry for help, or at least a signal that I was up for something cool after their shift. The first time I played it-that unsteady strumming of electric guitar, David Berman’s country deadpan-I suspect it was in the living room of my dad’s apartment. He raised his eyebrow and wondered aloud if Silver Jews were the worst band he’d ever heard.

Dubbing themselves the Silver Jews - after the Silver Apples, the Silver Beatles, and slang for blonde-haired Jewish people - they played noisy, often improvised songs, mostly for the sheer enjoyment they got out of playing together after a hard day's work. At the time, Berman and Malkmus were guards at an art museum and Nastanovich was a bus driver.
