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


aht.. chu... pu... (that's a shocked noise if you're not getting it) you don't like kim?! eh? I guess you have to have taste to get it :p

And thepickups, i heard your cover

I love her voice, I don't like the way she wanted to bring her own crap Breeders style into the band.

Meh, each to their own. I was sunbathing listening to SR earlier. It's the perfect album ever when listened to like that. Reminded me how much i adore this band.

I absolutely love them. One of my favourite bands, although I don't listen to them so much anymore.

Favourite album is probably Doolittle

...Or maybe Trompe Le Monde


...Or maybe Surfa Rosa

Goddam this is hard!
#49
I have Surfer Rosa, and I'm saving up for Doolittle. My favorite songs are Debaser, Gigantic, and Cactus

And I saw them at Jones Beach in New York a couple years ago
#50
i hate the pixies!


hope ya'll can tell i'm joking.
one of my favorite bands and kim's where it's at, back in the day she was quite the little fox

#51
The Pixies are a band that just about anyone can love, but they're so underrated. EVERYONE knows "Smells Like Teen Spirit" right? Cobain based the bass line and the chord structure directly from "Debaser"! And he gets all the ****in credit!?!

Don't get me wrong I love Cobain, but that's some bull***t

(oh yeah, almost forgot. PIXIES OWN YOU!!! DOOLITTLE RULES!!!)
In an interstellar burst! I am back to save the universe...
#53
They're Only My Favorite Band! Favorite Album of theirs: Doolittle, Favorite Song (Tough One): It's between Bone Machine, Debaser, or Number 13 baby, but thats like an impossible choice to make.

Actually on the last 2 Pixies albums, Bossanova and Trompe le Monde, kim hardly did anything on the cds, Frank wrote like most, practically all of the songs on those CD's. But yeah, just throwing that out there.

i want some pixies pants...no actually that would be really not too cool
i want a pixies hoodie thing, but the black one is boring. oh well.

I think The Pixies is an overrated band. I know I'm in the minority though.

I picked up Surfer Rosa because I liked "Where is My Mind" at the end of Fight Club. I'm still just starting to listen to it but I'm liking what I hear.

But anyways. Monkey Gone To Heaven would have to be my fav song by The Pixies.
Great band.

to me there's better songs than Where is my Mind.

#69
there are better songs, but if you want to start with the pixies you will start there. it is almost a guarantee
#70
The pixies are a great band and don't get enough respect imo

I agree, but that was the song that initially sparked my interest.
#74
o man the first time i heard of them was when i saw the video for debaser and i sang it for my friend the next day and we were all "wtf? this is ridiculous!" but no i really like that song now. and here comes your man! awesome!
#75
me and my friend tried to learn Debaser on bass and drums today.
we're going to continue next practice...

#77
i find that when comparing Surfer Rosa and Doolittle, some of the songs on Doolittle are a little stronger overall, but Surfer Rosa as a whole album is better.

anyone agree?
#78
Am I the only one who finds Doolittle a tad overrated? Although it has some fantastic songs ie Debaser, Monkey...., Dead, I find the second half is a bit weak.......
#79
^Hey is the best song on the whole album (part of the second half), and second to only the single version of Gigantic overall IMO.

One of the most influential bands of all time, no doubt. The album version of Gigantic sounds like it was recorded for about $2 in a cupboard but the single versions great. Hey is my fave guitar solo of all time man, Joey uses some nice nice guitars live as well.
