The freaken pixies

Post by Gyro » Wed Apr 11, 2007 7:59 am

I'm interested, considering the nature of the music thatmost people on this site are engaged with is electronic, are there many pixies fans out there?

I got a chance to see them recently, wow, amazing

I'm definetly a fan, though i watched preview for their movie loudQUIETloud and it looks like freaking awful reality television in movie form.

but yeah, I'm a fan.
It was as if someone shook up a 6 foot can of blood soda and suddenly popped the top.

i love the pixies and alot of other american alt/post rock bands

i agree with johnisfaster about the film loudquietloud, i have it!
its an awkward watch, feels a bit intrusive

but that aside ,the music is timeless

I still wear my Pixies t-shirt after all these years. I caught them on the reunion tour, air-guitared and cried the entire show.

You just shot up in my estimation.

For what it's worth.

Yep - they're in my cd-collection. I like the Bossanova album.

It has been years since I listened to them, though...

Love the Pixies. They have just been in Australia doing some gigs. Never thought they'd make it here and I'm ashamed to say that I never got tickets. :cry: Some fan I turned out to be.
Have heard several tracks from new Dinosaur Jnr album, and I think they have done well. Always a worry when a great band reforms after a hiatus. Good to see J Mascis & Lou Barlow are able to work together again and still produce some great stuff in their older years.

I recently watched a video of the Pixies playing live in their hayday. They closed the set with the song Tame. All I can say is that, they realize for a fleeting moment-- the entirity of the bombastic potential that can be garnered from rock music.

In my mind and in my heart they are heroes.

I've loved the Pixes for since I first bought Surfer Rosa about 15 years ago! I think it was actually one of the first CD's I ever purchased! It came in the big, long cd box!

I actually have a hard time hearing them anymore. I still like them but have overplayed all of those songs that it's almost unlistenable to me.

That and Slint's Spiderland...
