The Pixies

I searched for a thread on The Pixies but to no avail

I've just gotten back in The Pixies. My dear father bought The Pixies at the BBC last week and I've beeb listening to it. Great alt. versions of the songs.
I have Surfer Rosa, Doolittle(my favourite) and the B-sides collection. Favourite songs at the moment are Is She Weird, Hey and the alt version of Monkey Gone To Heaven with David on vocals.
I was at their gig last year in Dublin, t'was funky.

What does everyone think of them? Amazingly unique band IMO

I love the songs 'Happening' 'Down the well' 'Ana' 'Dancing the Manta Ray' 'Where is my mind' and a lot more. That's all the songs I could think of at this moment.

Not my favorite band but I dig them. I have all their discs and break them out on occasion. It's really too bad that Kim and Black Francis couldn't put their creative differences aside back in the day. They could have been huge. Seems like Kim always gets the short end of the stick - The Breeders fell apart because she put the band on hold to wait for her sis to get off of drugs. Kim rocks...and she's cute too!

Brick is Red is probably one of the best songs ever written.

It's been awhile since I listened to them, and since I have seen a thread here on them.

They are good. Were one of my top favorites, but I've grown out of them a bit.

Learn to appreciate the finer arts of exagerration. Then, just maybe, you won't come off as an asshole.

I missed recording their live concert on Austin City Limits last summer. I thought I was going to cry. They're one of my favorite bands at the moment, and have been for some time.

Favorite Songs:
I Bleed
Gouge Away
Here Comes Your Man
Debaser
Wave of Mutilation

..and so many more.

Doolittles a far better album than Surfer Rosa. Surfer is great, don't get me worng, but the songs aren't as well-written and the band was still getting it's bearings. Doolittle is a band at the absolute pinnicle of it's creativity. Afaic, it's one of the 2 or 3 best (and also most influential) albums of the past 20 years.

Frank Black has also had a really solid career since the Pixies. In fact, I think some of his stuff since the Pixies is as good as anything he did with the band (songs like Headache, Los Angeles, Cult Of Ray...). Even his "rawk" band The Catholics had lots of great songs...

I like what i've heard, but i've only heard a good two songs.

Wave of Mutilation is rather cool.

I adore "Where Is My Mind?"

Funny, I was actually watching Fight Club today.
Brilliant.
