    Some fairly blunt words from Mrs. Black

    "I will say this now, and then take down my post in exactly one hour:

    Regarding the past nine years: If anyone thinks it was easy for the other Pixies to function and be a vital, real band, with the bass player that they had, then they simply don't know what I know. I've seen people glibly talk smack about the reunion tours being just about making money. That maybe *someone we all know* simply rejected the new material because it was sub-par and she's discriminating and is protective of the legacy, etc etc. But you have no idea.... NO IDEA. Sometimes people are challenged, and they are difficult to work with. Sometimes these people did a lot of damage to themselves with alcohol and drugs. And its hard to reason with people who aren't reasonable. If you long for the original bass player to be in the band, then you are casting your vote for the other three members of the otherwise vital, eager Pixies to roll over and die, to be imprisoned within the shells of their former creative selves, and to struggle vainly, and/or sell out, forever. The time came for a jailbreak. Rejoice!"

    I've always felt Kim held back the Pixies some a couple years into their reunion. Hell she was the reason they hardly ever played stuff off Bossanova, she was too controlling on what she wanted/would allow. Whatever, I'm cool with a new bass player and a new tour, and hopefully a new album.

    If anyone ends up with an extra Pixies ticket for their LA dates please can you please offer it to me who is a huge fan but didnt know if he would still be living in southern california to be able to attend their show...Tallguy can attest that I am huge fan when he asked me who is my favorite band at Naja's two years ago or Ragepatton who saw me in Seattle because I flew there since there was two shows in a row with no LA date announce at the time tickets went on sale.Ill buy your ticket for face price and a beer or even buy a good beer based off your or myself taste addition to the ticket price.

    I do recall this conversation, but after saying they were your favorite band you said your favorite album of theirs is Bossanova so I just assumed you were kidding about the whole thing.

    I'm seeing a lot of track names that I don't recognize. Seems pretty clear we've got at least a few more EPs or an LP on the way still.

    "the band issued the four-song “EP-1” early on Tuesday, the first in a series of mini-releases it plans to put out sporadically over the next 15 months."

    Is anyone else having a hard time purchasing the EP? It takes me back to the other webpage rather than a checkout page. Am I just challenged?

    Also, the new EP sounds good. I'm not certain it sounds like Pixies, as there is a definite lack of Joey Santiago insane guitar histrionics that defines the band's albums, but the four songs here are uniformly good. Bam Thwok, eat your heart out.

    The new songs sound very similar in tone and production to Black Francis's last album, NonStopErotik, though they are better than pretty much everything on that one (with a couple of exceptions). I really don't like the production, but I think it doesn't hurt the song writing here as much as it did on NSE.

    Old interview but awesome quote

    http://www.thestoolpigeon.co.uk/feat...ck-franci.html

    "Right. And now all the festivals… I’m not playing festivals anymore – that’s it. I played my last one, I don’t give a shit about them anymore. I mean, we’re all paid very well at these festivals, even if you’re low on the bill. I’m Frank Black and I’m not that high on the bill, but still – loads of money and you wonder where it’s coming from… I’m standing in a field in Switzerland the other day and I’m watching these parachutists come out of the sky, very dramatically over the audience, and there’s smoke coming out of their boots, and I’m like, ‘Wow, what’s going on? Air show or something.’ Parachutes open up and… ‘Nokia!!!’ [cracks up] Fuckin’ A, man! All these festivals, they’re all Nokia, Heineken, Marlboro… all this corporate bullshit. And I’ve never been offended by the whole corporate thing – it’s like, ‘Fuck it, if you can’t beat them, join them. I can’t get played on the radio but you want to put me in a TV ad? At least I’ll get some money, which will give me more financial freedom…’ But I’m playing these festivals and I always forget this. When I first started playing them years ago, they just seemed cooler; it seemed the audience wasn’t quite so dumb: one moment you had Texas doing their pop thing and then it was Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, and people weren’t confused. Now, I feel like they look at me like I’ve got two heads. It’s like, ‘Come on, you fucking people!’ I stopped a show the other night at a festival: they were kicking around this fucking blow-up dolphin – a symbol of the festival, a balloon thing. ‘Stop! Kill that fucking dolphin. This is bullshit. This is not why I do this – so you people can hit around a beach ball. Fuck that.’ It’s like the whole thing with the encore, which, since the beginning of my career, has been overdone. It barely has any trace of what a real encore was 100 years ago. Everything is like, dumb audience, dumb festival, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb. I’ve got nothing against pop music and I’ve got nothing against people who want to be showmen, but it really bothers me that there’s an expectation from the audience now: they don’t have any tolerance for something that isn’t that. Even some of my own fans have the same attitude: ‘I went to a show last night and I have to say I was very disappointed because he didn’t even talk to the audience.’ Jesus fucking Christ! I didn’t even talk to the audience? Where the fuck have you been!? Have you ever listened to a fuckin’ Lou Reed album? Have you ever been to real rock show? Have you ever seen Mark E. Smith? Come on! You want me to talk? Is that all you care about? Having this interpersonal, ‘Heeeey!’ Fuck you!"

    Also I'd like to defend Kim Deal for a minute here on behalf of all heroin addicts:

    We're not really that difficult to work with. Just don't bother us until we're high. But not, like, when we just got high, because we're trying to enjoy it. Wait like 45 minutes. Then we'll talk about whatever with you, perfectly reasonably. For a solid hour or so. Then we're gonna get a little irritable. Then we're gonna get high again.

    This is going in "Emerson, Lake & Powell" territory.
