Heck Yes! I love the Pixies! Debaser, Where is my mind?, Bone Machine! I really want to buy that new book about them: The oral history of the pixies. Sounds really cool.

I think The Pixies are the most underrated band of all time. My favorite songs are basically anything off Doolittle

Heads up for mentioning Frank man I heart Frank solo, some of it's easily as good as the Pixies stuff.

Back to the Pixies, anyone else think it would have been SO ace if Bam Thwok had been chosen for the Shrek soundtrack?!

I just picked their BBC recordings and I've been enjoying that a lot. As far as studio albums go, I still only have Doolittle but it's a phenomenal album. Haven't gotten around to picking up Surfer Rosa, I've been meaning to get it for close to a year now.

Yeah, The Pixies are a great band, my favourite is Doolittle too, Here Comes Your Man is my favourite song of theirs, probably the only one I could listen to for days on end on repeat (don't ask).

Wave of Mutilation is also great.

The Pixies are great I think it's a shame what happened to them in the end up. They were for a very long time my favourite band I only have the reunion tour DVD, their greatest hits and Doolittle. In my opinion I would say that Doolittle is one fo the greatest albums of all time and I don't think it get enough recognition. You have now made me want to find cool bootlegs and the such.

Anyone know any good bootlegs?

I'm still trying to find some. All the ones I've found don't work. You can get some stuff here, but if I remember right the quality is really bad, really low bitrates.

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

Yeh a really good band. It annoies me how some people just can't get it and suddenly label them as "****". They are so different to alot of stuff. I know some people don't like them, but some people could, they just don't try.

And also, where is my mind???Amazing. Chekc out my cover in my sig!

I dislike Kim now. I got a Breeders CD today. I turned it off half way through(a thing I rarely do to a new CD). It was just UTTER UTTER ****E.

If that's the style Kim wanted to introduce into The Pixies, I don't blame Black Francis for telling her to **** off(or whatever way he put it).

You ****ing die I said...I said you ****ING die, to her...huh?...what?...No no, I was talking to Kim. I said you ****in' die.... nonoehno I I we were just goofing around... no no it didn't have anything to do with anything... she said don't touch anybody touch this is my stuff and I said you ****ing die, like that. I was finishing her part for her....

... you know what I mean?

I love the Vamos Intro
