or Planet of Sound.



If anyone can think of a band that starts with the letter A who sound like the PIxies or have partially derived their sound from the Pixies sound then feel free to start the game.

Queens of Stone Age one of most awful band in world. How can compare with Pixies? Their sound about as original as my scrotum sack.

This doesn't have the sound I remember either.

Zen Bungalow

There was a time when I used to love them. Mid to late 80's. They have been out of my rotation for 20 years. I have a few CD's and a couple cassettes and I wanted to try to get back into them again so instead of finding those I went to my local libray (where I get most of my music nowadays) and took out Beyond and Back: The X Anthology double CD. Listening to it just wasn't the same for me today. It happened again last week when I took out The Ramones' Hey! Ho! Let's Go: The Anthology and I just couldn't getting into the music again. I do remember my favorite album from X was More Fun in the New World. Which I think was also there breakthrough album/chart topper.
I know my heart is gonna be broken again as I wait for the library get me their copy of the Scorpions' Tokyo Tapes Live 1978. I have that in album form but havn't listened to any of my LP's since the mid 80's.

You beat me by two minutes. I was tweaking my post too much. ;p

Maybe the Pixies were loosely influenced by the 80's band X from Los Angeles. Their formula was more Punk/Country sounding but they had the Male/Female sharing vocals thing going on. Well, Charles didn't share too much vocals did he. That's the best I've got for X.

X, the band, didn't FB cite them?
pot Posted - 04/18/2012 : 05:15:56
Yes I have one for W, but for some reason I stupidly thought we were on X... duh

I guess X is a hard one so we can make that a blank where you can name any band. There is of course The XX, who I don't like, and I don't know if you could compare them to the Pixies.

I think there is a pretty obvious one for Y, actually I have two for Y but imma keep them.
Thomas Posted - 04/18/2012 : 02:36:55
The White Stripes

Does anyone have a better one.

Ultra Vivid Scene

Kim's mate and Pixies labelmate.

I've been dying to read hammerhands Z for months.
pot Posted - 04/11/2012 : 05:17:07
Shit sorry Thomas. Were on U now!
Thomas Posted - 04/11/2012 : 03:32:38
Are you not counting my 'T'? Ouch.

pot Posted - 04/10/2012 : 07:10:37
Erm I think I also mentioned somewhere something about alphabetical order as well...

I think we're on T now.

Fuck it, this should be under C but since they are such a spectacularly brilliant band- THE CHAP


p.s. their new album is brilliant, my outright favourite of the year so far. Also apparently Art Brut's favourite new band according to twitter.

Oh, ok. Radiohead.
pot Posted - 04/09/2012 : 06:44:47
I think I did state earlier that in order to make the game work a bit better you could post also bands/artists who were an influence on the Pixies sound.

I call foul. Lou Reed doesn't sound like the Pixies. The Pixies sound like Lou Reed.

This song starts off similar, but a little sped up, to WIMM.
One of my favorites of there's.

Oi Polloi

not really much like the Pixies asides from the screaming but let's punk out to that and move on to 'P' shall we anyway?

I filmed this shit

Our Lady Peace, does that count?
pot Posted - 02/22/2012 : 03:23:51
Sooner or later a band beginning with the letter 'o' who sound like the Pixies will come out..
Thomas Posted - 02/21/2012 : 08:17:31
Stalled at O.

I thought for sure Nirvana would have been the unanimous choice for 'N'.
