Pixies are playing the Vector Arena Auckland on March 12th.

 

The gimmick is they are playing all of Doolittle plus all its bsides to celebrate the 20th anniversary (they fail at maths clearly).

 

16 years too late for me, but I'll probably go anyway.

 

It's fucking Bossanova's 20th anniversary next year not Doolittles' - PLAY THAT ONE INSTEAD ITS YOUR REAL BEST ALBUM. FUCK THIS BORING DOOLITTLE ORTHODOXY

I've seen them a few times over the past few years, and they took the piss much less than when I saw them in Manchester around May '89, when they were a little slack to say the least.

Fuck, yes. And fuck Bossanova, 5 tracks out of 14 (albeit amazing ones, i.e. Ana) worth paying serious attention to does not make a great album. Trompe Le Monde wanks all over it, as do the b-sides from the Doolittle singles. What Bossanova track stands up to Into The White? I'm old, I know this shit.

whats that one on bossa nova. the thing . or the happening. or something. one is a bside. one is longer than the other one. i like that one. havent heard bossa nova in many many years

The Thing (the shorter one) is on the Velouria EP, which pisses all over The Happening on Bossanova. The drums sound well ace on The Thing.

Mmm Pixies. My absolute favorite band as a teenager. They're still the only rock band that I really enjoy, though I only listen to them when working out now.
