Pixies Announce New EP, Release New Video

January 3rd, 2014 · 1 Comment

The Pixies — now with 100 percent more Paz Lenchnatin! — released to their website yesterday a new EP. The oh-so-cleverly named EP-2 is the follow-up to last year’s abysmal EP-1. (Which, if you’re anything like me, you were able to block from your mind with repeated listens to “Distance Equals Rate Times Time.”) If […]

VIDEO: Pixies “Bag Boy”

June 28th, 2013 · 3 Comments

I feared something fishy was up when the Pixies announced Kim Deal’s departure so … politely. It’s been common knowledge that they wanted to record a new record and Deal was the sole hold-out. I actually don’t care whether this new song is good or not. (And for the record, it’s ok). It just seems […]

Pulp Reunites, Of Course

November 10th, 2010 · 5 Comments

As with any reunion news that surfaces these days, Pulp’s reformation is no great surprise. The only band that would genuinely shock me with a reunion is The Smiths, and that’s only because I know what a grudge-holding drama queen Morrissey is. Short of The Smiths, though, anyone seems fair game. As a fan, I’m […]

Pixies on Fallon

November 29th, 2009 · Comments Off on Pixies on Fallon

Given that Doolittle is my favorite Pixies record I’m really quite torn regarding attendance of their upcoming show in DC. I don’t want to ruin the amazing memories I have from their reunion show in ATL. That show was positively magical and I had chalked it up to being the last time I would see […]

Pixies “La La Love You” live 10.15.2009

November 2nd, 2009 · Comments Off on Pixies “La La Love You” live 10.15.2009

Now that the Pixies have extended their reunion into a never-ending trip down memory lane, it’s getting harder to feel genuinely supportive. When the band first announced it would be reuniting 6 years ago, the excitement far outweighed all of the cliched cons that go hand-in-hand with any band trying to recapture its legend post-prime.

Doolittle, the concert (20th Anniversary)

June 30th, 2009 · Comments Off on Doolittle, the concert (20th Anniversary)

“We wanted to do something special for Doolittle’s 20th anniversary,” Pixies singer/guitarist Black Francis explained in a press release, “and we thought this was a good opportunity to play all of the songs from that album, something we don’t normally do at a regular gig.” Guess I’ll be flying to London or Paris for their […]

New Pixies album June 15th? (No)

April 21st, 2009 · 1 Comment

Word of a possible new Pixies album is spreading. The PR firm, Artists In Residence, had a splash page up yesterday, which announced that pre-orders will be taken for something called Minotaur by the Pixies beginning June 15th. This is a reputable firm, so it’s likely that this is legit. Whether this is a full-length […]
