    Does anyone else think the Pixies were/are just incredible.

    Come on Pilgrim, Surfer Rosa, Doolittle, Bossanova, Trompe Le Monde are just ducking great albums. Best american band ever I think.

    I love Doolittle more than any other Pixies release. Love it to pieces. Yes, even Crackity Jones, the song it seems everyone dislikes Its just so complete as an album. Actually its such a good example of a greatly put together album that when I listen to it in one go, it makes me sad that artists continue to not care about albums as such any longer. Doolittle just sums up the end of the 80s and gives us a little insight into what the 90s gave us!

    Anyway, yeah, I'll shut up now.

    They certainly seem to have influenced the sound of a lot of bands now, that's for sure.

    Always found Trompe le Mode to be their best release, Frank Black going a bit mental after being abducted by aliens really made for some interesting songs

    Saw them live, they took requests online before the gig so everyone there would hear their faves. Such a good idea. Take note Thom.

    You should do, i'm not very good at this whole thing, just did this out of boredom, and because of my pixies passion and why thank you I am nah i'm not.

    Archamedes when and where was that gig? That sounds awesome, I've been ridiculously obsessed with Pixies for a few years but the closest they've come to playing in Birmingham (where I live) is London which I just couldn't really go to. Must. See. Them.

    You can see why bands, especially those that tour frequently, wouldn't want to do this though. They'd be stuck playing the same songs constantly. And with bands that tour all the time (meaning I've more than likely seen them on several occasions and heard all of the most popular songs anyway) I prefer it when less common material is performed.

    I agree, this was a one off, and it's nice to see a different format for a gig, like Wu-Tang playing 36 Chambers from start to finish.

    Bands that tour frequently without a decent back catalogue will play the same songs all the time anyway, so this, as you say wouldn't really work for them. But this is a Pixies thread, and I was merely posting that on this ocassion, it was great to see a band of this stature appease their fans in this way. They'd have probably played most of those songs anyway, but it's the interaction which is nice.

    I suggested that Radiohead would be another band that could benefit from this approach, such an eclectic history of music, and a touring schedule that hardly feeds the appetite of their fan base. Bob Dylan, Metallica, Muse, Rufus Wainwright... I wasn't talking about going to watch Ed Sheeran 12 times in a year.
