The Pixies Acoustic at the 2006 Newport Folk Festival

by Jonathan Furmanski

Vid from Train422 who says;

The only acoustic performance by the Pixies on their 2005/6 Tour appearing at the Newport Folk Festival. I shot this myself, and although a little shaky in parts (because of fatigue) it is well worth a look…

Pixies – Acoustic (Live in Newport) [2006]

Pixies – Acoustic (Live in Newport) [2006]
mp3 | 192kpbs | 73:43 min.


“No! That’s just not right! The Pixies opening for us is like the Beatles opening for us. I won’t allow it. There’s no way we can follow the Pixies!”

– Thom Yorke

(on being informed of plans to have Pixies play before them at Coachella)

Pixies are one of the most influential music acts of modern times. And one of the greatest! No fucking doubt!!

An amazing group we’ve loved from the earliest days of the incendiary “Come on Pilgrim” EP through to the seminal,revolutionary, timeless wonder of Surfer Rosa – which shone like a raw, rupturing beacon of raging, cleansing fire amongst the music morass of the times! – on to the three fine LPs beyond.

Initially spanning the late eighties and early nineties, Black Francis and cohorts created the brand new blueprint for alternative rock that would be followed by everyone from the over-rated Nirvana to other grunge tat to Britpop …. and far beyond.

After a decade apart, the Pixies reformed, to fan euphoria, in 2004.

We here step into this tale at around 6pm on a warm Saturday in August, 2006 when Pixies took the stage – very surreally in the one time bastion of the most trenchant folkies wearing woolly jumpers – of the renowned Newport Folk Festival to perform one of their most unique sets ever!

Yap, Pixies playing Newport Folk Festival! Who’d have thunk it! If Surfer Rosa is not a world, nay a universe, away from the folk stylings of Pete Seeger et al, we don’t know what the hell is!

Recalling the huge brouhaha the Newport folkies made over Dylan’s electric performance in 1965, one can imagine the outbursts and riots that a fully-blown electric Pixies set would arouse!

So, therefore, playing a completely acoustic set, the reunited original lineup of Frank Black, Kim Deal, Joey Santiago and David Lovering give a wonderfully unique spin to 21 fan favourites!

No, not a typo. Twenty one stone cold Pixies classics mofos!!

This comes from a DVD that, as well as this wonderful show, had Bonus Features including a 21 Minute “fly on the wall” feature of the Pixies in rehearsals for their debut acoustic show as they deconstruct well-known Pixies songs from electric to acoustic versions, including “Debaser” (which didn’t make the final set list.)

You can buy this DVD here. And, of course, if any kind soul from Eagle Rock or elsewhere, wants to send this DVD to us – a collection of paupers living in a tin shack – please don’t be reluctant to knock on the e-mail door!!

No links here, thanks to internet nazis, but we saw some stuff on this on some other blog. And for the dumber of those dumb dumb nazi dum-dums, the phrase “on another blog” basically means “on another fucking blog!!

Pixies -Full fkn Discography ! (and loads more!)

Pixies -Full fkn Discography ! (and loads more!)

Simply one of our favourite groups of all time! Full fucking stop!!

Pixies arrived on the “night of the living dead” mid-eighties music scene like an exocet missile! So fresh, so different, so real, so fucking great!

They were hugely influential but never attained the huge commercial success they deserved.

Their blueprint would be later ripped off left, right and centre by the likes of Kurt Cobain and a slew of horrid grunge bands, and many many groups since the death-knell of grunge.

Rather sickeningly, a lot of theses made a hell of a lot more money than the Pixies ever did! I’m surprised Charles Thompson IV, aka Black Francis, isn’t in court every day of the week suing slews of shitty bands!!

Pixies made music far ahead of its time. A mixture of scud missiles, Beach Boys, Francis Bacon, Ramones, buzzsaws, Jonathan Richman, surf babes, the Velvets, snuff flicks, Beefheart, Luis Bunuel, Iggy, the Scream, Mamas and Papas, Old Testament whackos, Johnny Thunders, Beatles, martian movies, Hendrix, Van Gogh, David Lynch, Chuck Berry, Tijuana hookers, Jerry Lee Lewis and Motorhead! Brilliantly fucked up! Brilliantly creative!

https://i2.wp.com/www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2008/02/20/pixies_joey_santiago_teams_up_with_nike_300x308.jpg

The Pixies’ history began when undergraduates Joey Santiago and Black Francis (born Charles Thompson IV) shared a room at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Santiago soon introduced Francis to the music of David Bowie and 1970s punk rock, and the pair began to jam together. Francis then embarked on a student exchange trip to San Juan, Puerto Rico, but upon arriving struggled to grasp the Spanish language.

After spending six months in an apartment with a “weirdo, psycho, gay roommate”,[11] he returned to Boston and dropped out of the university. The two spent 1984 working in a warehouse, with Francis composing songs on his acoustic guitar and writing lyrics on the subway train.

The pair formed a band in January 1985. Bassist Kim Deal joined Santiago and Francis two weeks later after responding to a classified ad Francis had placed, seeking a female bassist who liked both folk music icons Peter, Paul and Mary and the hardcore punk band Hüsker Dü.!

Deal was the only person to respond, but arrived at the audition without a bass guitar as she had never played the instrument before.She claimed her twin sister Kelley Deal had a bass back in Dayton and that she had no money to get it. Francis lent her $50 for the airfare and Deal returned with the bass guitar.The trio started rehearsing in late 1985 in Deal’s apartment, “because the old lady upstairs couldn’t hear.”

After recruiting Kim Deal, the band tried to get Kelley to join the band on drums unsuccessfully. Kim’s husband suggested they hire drummer David Lovering, whom Kim had met at her wedding reception.

They arrived at a name after Santiago selected the word randomly from a dictionary and took a liking to the definition, “mischievous little elves”. The group was originally named “Pixies In Panoply” (“Things on Fire” was considered), but soon shortened it to “Pixies”.

Once the band had settled on a name and stable line-up, they moved rehearsals to Lovering’s parents’ garage in the summer of 1986.

Their first show—named as “possibly the worst gig in the history of rock” by the band—took place at the The Rathskeller, Boston, where they performed early versions of “Here Comes Your Man”, “Dig for Fire”, and “Build High”.

Come On Pilgrim is the seminal debut release from Pixies, released on the British independent record label 4AD in September 1987. The original 1987 UK release entered the UK indie album chart on October 24, 1987 (1987-10-24), spending 29 weeks on the chart and peaking at number 5.

Come On Pilgrim had no distribution in the United States when it was first released. It was unreleased in the United States until August 1988, when Rough Trade included it on their CD release of their first full-length album Surfer Rosa. At the same time, the two releases were issued on separate vinyl records by Rough Trade.

Also in August 1988, 4AD released Surfer Rosa and Come On Pilgrim on CD together in the UK. This has been the standard UK CD release ever since, only being out of print for about six months in 1998. However, subsequent U.S. CD releases have split them in two.

In 1992, Elektra Records issued Come On Pilgrim and Surfer Rosa on separate CDs in the US. After 4AD re-acquired the band’s US distribution rights in 2004, they were again released on CD separately; this version of Come On Pilgrim was the first CD release to carry the 4AD catalogue (MAD 709).

//upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/3/34/SurferRosa.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. Surfer Rosa was the first full-length album by Pixies, released in March 1988 on the British independent record label 4AD.

This was the first time I’d heard them and the strange strange wonderful sound blew me away!

The album’s unusual and very odd subject matter includes references to mutilation and voyeurism. This is augmented by experimental recording, low-fidelity production and a unique drum sound that owes much to sound engineer Steve Albini. Surfer Rosa contains many of the themes present in the Pixies’ earlier output, including Spanish lyrics and references to Puerto Rico.

Because of 4AD’s independent status, distribution in the United States was handled by British label Rough Trade Records; however, it failed to chart in either the UK or the U.S. “Gigantic” was the only single taken from the release, and only reached #93 on the UK Singles Chart. Despite this, Surfer Rosa was rereleased in the U.S. by Elektra Records in 1992, and in 2005 was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America.

Surfer Rosa is often cited as a favorite of music critics, and is frequently included on professional lists of the all-time best rock albums. Many alternative rock artists, including Billy Corgan, Rivers Cuomo and PJ Harvey, have cited the album as inspirational; Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain frequently acknowledged that Surfer Rosa was a strong influence on Nevermind, and in 1993 hired Albini to produce his band’s album In Utero.

https://i0.wp.com/upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/4c/SurferRosaWoman.jpg

Surfer Rosa’s cover features a wonderful photograph of a topless “friend of a friend” of the band, posing as a flamenco dancer, pitched against a wall which displays a crucifix and a torn poster. Simon Larbalestier, who contributed pictures to all of the Pixies albums, decided to build the set because “we couldn’t find the atmosphere we wanted naturally.” According to Larbalestier, Francis came up with the idea for the cover as he wrote songs in his father’s “topless Spanish bar”; Larbalestier added the crucifix and torn poster, and they “sort of loaded that with all the Catholicism.”

Commenting on the cover in 2005, Francis said, “I just hope people find it tasteful.” The cover booklet expands on the theme, and features photographs of the flamenco dancer in several other poses; there are no song lyrics or written content, apart from album credits, in the booklet. Albini’s name does not appear on the original record sleeve.

The booklet’s photographs were taken in one day at a pub opposite the 4AD offices, because, according to Larbalestier, “it was one of the few places that had a raised stage”. In an 1988 interview with Joy Press, Francis described the concept as referring to “a surfer girl,” who “walks along the Beach of Binones, has a surfboard, very beautiful.” When questioned about the topless element, Francis replied “For the first record, I told them I liked nudity. I like body lines – not necessarily something in bad taste, didn’t even have to be female, just body lines… like that Obsession ad, you know?”

According to Melody Maker, the album was originally entitled “Gigantic,” after Deal’s song, but the band feared misinterpretation of the cover and changed it to “Surfer Rosa.” The “name” of the cover woman, and the album title, comes from the “Oh My Golly!” lyric, “Besando chichando con surfer rosa.”

Pixies – Doolittle – 1989
Released April 18, 1989
Recorded October 31, 1988 – November 23, 1988 at Downtown Recorders in Boston, Massachusetts and Carriage House Studios in Stamford, Connecticut
Genre Alternative rock
Length 38:38
Label 4AD (UK)
Elektra (US)
PolyGram (Canada)
Producer Gil Norton

This magnificent LP blew my little mind when it first came out! I played this so much the fucking record player broke!

Doolittle, the second studio album, was released in April 1989 on 4AD. The album’s offbeat and dark subject material, featuring references to surrealism, Biblical violence, torture and death, contrasts with the clean production sound achieved by the then newly hired producer Gil Norton.

Doolittle was the Pixies’ first international release, with Elektra Records acting as the album’s distributor in the United States.

The Pixies released two singles from Doolittle, “Here Comes Your Man” and “Monkey Gone to Heaven,” both of which were chart successes on the US Modern Rock Tracks chart. The album itself reached #8 on the UK Albums Chart; an unexpected success for the band.

In retrospect, album tracks such as “Debaser,” “Wave of Mutilation,” and “Hey” are highly acclaimed by critics, while the album, along with Surfer Rosa, is seen as the band’s strongest work.

Doolittle has continued to sell consistently well in the years since its release, and in 1995 was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America. The album has been cited as inspirational by many alternative artists, while numerous music publications have ranked it as one of the most influential albums ever.

A 2003 poll of NME writers ranked Doolittle as the second greatest album of all time.

As Loud As Hell.jpg

“As Loud As Hell” by Simon Larbalestier, from the Doolittle cover booklet. The image references lyrics in “I Bleed”.

A hallmark of Pixies releases – and indeed anything on the wonderful 4AD label – is the beautiful artwork! Doolittle was the first album where Simon Larbalestier, the Pixies’ cover photographer, and Vaughan Oliver, the band’s cover artist, had access to the lyrics. According to Larbalestier, this “made a fundamental difference.” The availability of the lyrics allowed the art and photographs to be more closely tied to the content of the album; the cover references the themes in “Monkey Gone to Heaven,” and depicts a stuffed monkey, with a halo and the numbers five, six and seven above it.

The surrealist and abstract images throughout the album booklet are linked to the album’s content. “Gouge Away” is represented by a picture of a spoon containing hair, laid across a woman’s torso. “I Bleed” is referenced with the image “As Loud As Hell;” the image shows “a ringing bell,” with a set of teeth; this references the line “it shakes my teeth.” “Walking with the Crustaceans” is a visual representation of “Wave of Mutilation”‘s lyrics. Larbalestier later commented that he was interested in “early Surrealist stuff” at this time.

During the recording sessions, Whore was discarded as a potential album title, after Oliver changed the cover artwork idea to a monkey and halo cover. Francis later explained his rationale for the move:

“ I thought people were going to think I was some kind of anti-Catholic or that I’d been raised Catholic and trying to get into this Catholic naughty-boy stuff. […] A monkey with a halo, calling it Whore – that would bring all kinds of shit that wouldn’t be true. So I said I’d change the title. ”

Francis then named the album Doolittle, from the “Mr. Grieves” lyric “Pray for a man in the middle / One that talks like Doolittle.” This was in the tradition of previous Pixies albums; both Come On Pilgrim and Surfer Rosa used song lyrics for the album title.

Reviews of Bossanova were generally positive. Q’s Mat Snow, in his September 1990 review of Bossanova, said “the Pixies are masters of the calculated incongruity,” and commented that “they give other rockers an object lesson in the first principles of how it should be done.”

NME noted that the album’s production “leans towards the harsh garage grunge of Surfer Rosa, although the songs retain the strong melodies of Doolittle,” and said that “Bossanova is the composite Pixies LP.”

Trompe le Monde cover

Pixies – Trompe Le Monde
Released September 23, 1991
Recorded 1991 at Master Control and Pacifique, Burbank; at Studio des dames, Paris and at Blackwing, London
Genre Alternative, College rock
Length 39:03
Label 4AD/Elektra
Producer Gil Norton

With a title meaning “fool the world”, perhaps Pixies were trying to tell the world something! They had been around a number of years but had not achieved any significant commercial success – despite the endless critical plaudits. Furthermore, internal relationships in the group had already turned volatile and sadly this would be their final studio album.

Trompe le Monde is the Pixies’ fourth and final full-length studio album, released on September 23, 1991 through the 4AD record label. (It was released simultaneously in the USA on 4AD/Elektra, although the 2004 USA CD re-issue is solely on 4AD.) After the surf-pop of Bossanova, the album saw a return to the abrasive sound of the band’s early albums, even incorporating two songs, “Subbacultcha” and “Distance Equals Rate Times Time”, pre-dating their debut.

The album name comes from the title of the first track, “Trompe le Monde”, a French phrase meaning “Fool the World”. Unlike previous albums, the title of the album comes from the name of a song (rather than a song lyric), and is a play on the French phrase “trompe l’oeil” — a painting technique in which the painter fools the viewer into thinking objects presented are real.

Pixies – Pixies (2002)

This official release is often nicknamed “The Purple Tape”, though it is missing the tracks from Come On Pilgrim. It contains the previously unreleased “Rock A My Soul”.

The Purple Tape is the name given by fans to the Pixies’ original 17-track demo tape, recorded at Fort Apache Studios in March 1987 by Gary Smith, due, quite simply, to its mostly purple appearance. Eighteen tracks were recorded in the session; a cover of Larry Norman’s “Watch What You’re Doing” was cut from the final tape. Eight of the tracks were released in 1987 as the band’s debut, Come On Pilgrim and the remaining nine were released under the title Pixies in 2002 by Sonic Unyon records.

Pixies – Wave Of Mutilation ; The Best Of Pixies – 2004
Released 3 May 2004 (UK)

Recorded 1987-1991
Genre Alternative, College rock
Length 66:32
Label 4AD/Beggars Banquet Records
Producer Pixies, Gil Norton, Steve Albini & Gary Smith

Wave of Mutilation: Best of Pixies was released in May 2004 alongside a companion DVD featuring a live show, promotional videos and two documentaries.

This CD replaces 1997’s compilation Death to the Pixies in 4AD’s catalog, which previously served as the label’s “greatest hits” collection for the Pixies. While most fans agree that Wave of Mutilation is a more thorough compilation, some prefer the earlier disc, as it is remastered, while the newer compilation is not. Wave of Mutilation is volume-adjusted though, providing for a slightly more modern sound than 4AD’s original Pixies CDs.

1. Bone Machine
2. Nimrods Son
3. The Holiday Song
4. Caribou
5. Broken Face

V.A. – The Bridge: A Tribute To Neil Young (1989)

V.A. – The Bridge: A Tribute To Neil Young (1989)
Mp3 @ 320kbps

Let’s start with a slight segue and a rhetorical question! How do we know Sonic Youth are the greatest band out there. Well, we start by checking out their sublime covers on tributes like this, where their “Computer Age” is just fucking sublime! Check out too the I’m Not There OST, where their cover of the title track is perfect. I mean they even made the fucking Carpenters sound good with their version of “Superstar” years back!

THE BRIDGE, featuring a wide palette of alternative-identified artists covering Neil Young songs, wasn’t the first tribute album ever made, but it was the first one anyone really noticed, and it may well have been the best.

Its success, which had something to do with the fact that the artists were all rabid Young fans with palpable ideas about what to do with his songs, led to an outpouring of other tribute albums, most of which have been far less successful. Often they included – or, in one case, feted – the artists here, who became instant superstars on the tribute circuit. But the superstar on THE BRIDGE remained Neil Young, whose songs withstand both the weirdest and most loving of interpretations.

Among the former are Dinosaur Jr.’s very fast, very bratty punk take on the folky standby “Lotta Love” (aided by a guest singer who sounds mysteriously like Daniel Johnston) and Bongwater’s tape-loop-aided version of “Mr. Soul” (a song Young himself has done many times and many ways).

Others play it straight. The Pixies’ “Winterlong,” featuring one of the few recorded duets between Black Francis and Kim Deal, is a nearly perfect pop song; Soul Asylum’s “Barstool Blues” sounds like a lost classic of flannel-shirted rock; and guitarist Henry Kaiser (performing with singers David and Rosanne Lindley) squeezes every bit of junkie juice out of his downer medley of “The Needle And The Damage Done” (on piano) and “Tonight’s The Night” (with full band).

Wonderful songs and a wonderful tribute to a wonderful artist.

I seem to be using the word wonderful rather a lot today. Well, I guess that’s just wonderful !


Old man lying
by the side of the road
With the lorries rolling by,
Blue moon sinking
from the weight of the load
And the building scrape the sky,
Cold wind ripping
down the alley at dawn
And the morning paper flies,
Dead man lying
by the side of the road
With the daylight in his eyes.

Don’t let it bring you down
It’s only castles burning,
Find someone who’s turning
And you will come around.

Blind man running
through the light
of the night
With an answer in his hand,
Come on down
to the river of sight
And you can really understand,
Red lights flashing
through the window
in the rain,
Can you hear the sirens moan?
White cane lying
in a gutter in the lane,
If you’re walking home alone.

Don’t let it bring you down
It’s only castles burning,
Just find someone who’s turning
And you will come around.

Don’t let it bring you down
It’s only castles burning,
Just find someone who’s turning
And you will come around.

Pixies – Hey (Live)

https://i2.wp.com/www.zonalibre.org/blog/surferrosa/black2.jpgA true classic of modern music from the wonderful album “Doolittle“.

Man, I listened to that album so much when it first came out, my ears bled! But I kept on listening anyway!

Yet again, superb lyrics and slightly disturbed imagery from Charles Michael Kittridge Thompson IV – aka Black Francis.

A rather fine mixture of avant-garde abstract poetry and a raw incoherent scream from the ID!

Two great live versions here from different epochs!

The latter one is very interesting reinterpretation from The Eurockeenes Festival in Belfort, France.

https://i2.wp.com/www.thespacebar.co.uk/ebayscans/67853.jpg



Hey!
Been trying to meet you

Hey!
Must be a devil between us
or whores in my head
whores at my door
whores in my bed

But Hey!

Where
have you
been?
If you go i will surely die

We’re chained

Uh said the man to the lady
Uh said the lady to the man she adored
and the whores like a choir
go “Uh” all night
and Mary ain’t you tired of this?

“Uh”

is
the
sound
that the mother makes
when her baby breaks


We’re chained

Pixies – Bone Machine

This is a song for Carol

You’re into Japanese fast food

And I drop you off with your Japanese lover

And you’re going to the beach all day

You’re so pretty when you’re unfaithful to me

You’re so pretty when you’re unfaithful to me

You’re looking like

You’ve got some sun

Your blistered lips

Have got a kiss

The days are lit like everyone

Uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh

Your bones got a little machine

You’re the bone machine

I was talking to preachy-preach about kissy-kiss

He bought me a soda

He bought me a soda

He bought me a soda and he tried to molest me in the parking lot

Yep, yep yep yep!

I make you break

You make me hard

Your Island skin

looks Mexican

Our love is rice and beans and horse’s lard

Your bones got a little machine

You’re the bone machine

Pixies- Wave of Mutilation: The Best of Pixies

Pixies -Wave of Mutilation: The Best of Pixies
2004 | MP3 | 192 Kbps Srtereo | Genre: Alternative, College rock | 91 Mb

One of the greatest bands of all time, the wonderful Pixies.

I guess they were the Velvet Underground of the eighties, in terms of originality, magnificence and their widespread influence.

//upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/4/49/Pixies.jpg/250px-Pixies.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Black Francis, Kim Deal, David Lovering, and Joey Santiago. were sure making wonderfully perfect music all those years ago.

A wild amalgam of surf music, metal, raw punk, orgasms, falling buildings and sweet delicious pop, all below lyrics of sublime surrealism, psycho fantasies, UFOs, getting laid, insanity, the Bible, violence, incest and Spanish fetishes screamed out by Charles Thompson as if he was either in the sixth circle of hell or loaded with speed playing on a giant bed full of coked-up masochistic Mexican whores!!

The whole awful grunge scene was nothing more than a wildfire rip off of Pixies songs and styles.

That over-rated charlatan Kurt Cobain should have called himself Black Kurtis!

My sister held me close
and whispered to my bleeding head
“You are the son of a motherfucker”

Frank Black – Show Me Your Tears (2003)

Frank Black – Show Me Your Tears (2003)

The sound here is generally rather minimal, with a bare-bones guitar-bass-drums background occasionally fleshed out by extra instruments ranging from piano to maracas to harmonica.

With an obvious grounding in roots and blues most obviously embodied by the dual steel guitars of Rich Gilbert and David Philips, the Catholics’ latest effort is ideal for kicking back on the couch with a beer at the end of a day.

An album with a sound this decidedly old-school certainly doesn’t fit in the grunge-derived radio scene that Black helped create with the Pixies, but then he’s never been about following prevailing trends. Relying more on mood and nuance than on complexity or instrumental heroics, Black has managed to craft a compelling set of aural impressionist paintings.

The sound here is generally rather minimal, with a bare-bones guitar-bass-drums background occasionally fleshed out by extra instruments ranging from piano to maracas to harmonica.

With an obvious grounding in roots and blues most obviously embodied by the dual steel guitars of Rich Gilbert and David Philips, the Catholics’ latest effort is ideal for kicking back on the couch with a beer at the end of a day.

An album with a sound this decidedly old-school certainly doesn’t fit in the grunge-derived radio scene that Black helped create with the Pixies, but then he’s never been about following prevailing trends. Relying more on mood and nuance than on complexity or instrumental heroics, Black has managed to craft a compelling set of aural impressionist paintings.

The great one is back! The last true prophet of Indie Music. Frank Black … or erm … Black Francis or …!

We will always be grateful to Frankie for the wonder of the early Pixies album which helped call us forth into the paradise of great music.

The post Pixies stuff has had some great moments, but … never reached the consistently supreme heights! Perhaps, it’s too much to expect that it would.

I must say I much prefer the Black Francis stuff to the Frank Black stuff. Just as the nomenclature Francis Ford Coppola was used only for those Coppola movies that weren’t shite (when he was making some movies that weren’t shite!), Frank uses Black Francis for his more surreal, Pixies type music.

This one is typically insane and wonderful. Rock on Frankie!

https://i0.wp.com/www.zigzaglive.com/live/wp-content/uploads/2007/09/Frank_Black_-_frank-black-francis-02-screen.jpgLegendary Pixies frontman still cranking out surrealist alt-rock gems.

Good old Black Francis – he’s not a man to grow old gracefully like the mainstream musos. Sure, he may have made some significant excursions into Americana and folk sounds under his real name, Frank Black. But when he wears the Black Francis hat, he’s still the darkly inventive surrealist who led alt-rock legends Pixies to become one of the most influential bands of the late eighties. No meandering radio-friendly balladeering about cornfields and half-formulated regrets here, no sir.

Instead, Svn Fngrs seven songs in twenty minutes, mostly made up from simple jangling punky chords on guitar and sparse rat-a-tat drumming. The focus is all on Black Francis voice: muttering, ranting, screeching, doing child-like falsettos, sounding like a stoned night-watchman or a schizophrenic cowboy or a drunken Elvis impersonator or … or all sorts of things, really. Sometimes all within the space of a line or two, in fact.

And what lines they are. Black Francis songs are always narratives little vignettes and character sketches, miniature stories of strange people doing normal things or normal people doing strange things. More than half the fun is trying to work out what they’re really about.

Listening to Black Francis is like listening to a quick-change impressionist who only does imitations of real small-town characters that you’ve never met before (and never will). Its kind of like a road-movie, but made of music. And with a plot written by David Lynch in an unusually carefree and silly mood. Sort of.

Thats the thing much like Pixies, Black Francis is too big for the usual boxes, and the only one you can fit him in comfortably is the custom-made one with his own name written on it. He’s a quirky genius with a distinctive style, and Svn Fngrs is a glimpse into the sideshow circus of his mind simultaneously fun and disturbing, and as compelling as a couple arguing about their sex-lives in a crowded restaurant.
