It looks like they started to play Ring the Bell on June 7th 2015 in Toronto but abandoned it (from setlist dot com)

Actually I just reread the article and Paz says she "learned every single song on all the records," so I imagine she learned those 15 that they'll not likely play? Even Space (I Believe In).

Wow indeed
Bedbug Posted - 04/20/2017 : 05:53:22
Isn't WoW the first song that Paz sings on? And she hasn't sung it since that day in the studio?

That's a real shame if so, because the tempo alone would make it an awesome live experience.

Probably she didn't have to learn Bravo either, and a few of the others from IC (Ring the Bell?)

"3 weeks to learn 90 songs"

That's amazing.

And makes me think that leaves what, 18 songs or something that she never learned?

It will be nice to read articles about 2.0 when the first sentence of the opening paragraph is not about John Murphy's wife.

After reading Fool the World, Doolittle 33 1/3 and countless interviews over there years there isn't much left in the way of interviews for me; probably a good exhibit of FB/Pixies overkill on my part.

Now I think the best interviews are ones like Mr. Peter Radiator's, someone who's a hardcore fan yet with a skill to follow the flow of the person being questioned. I've read/heard interviews where the person will cut off someone just to get to the next question and a potentially interesting road remains untraveled.

Otherwise it's the same thing said in slightly different ways, which I understand, most people don't have close to 1000 posts on a FB message board.

I suppose an exception to the above are when they're about a new record, though after a while those usually become the same, because...well...how much can one go on about the same topic? How long can I go on about it in this dang post?!

About Dave, easily the most surprising thing I learned years ago was his love for Rush and how he really had to curtail his playing for Frank's songs. I love drumming, watching, listening, etc. but I've never paid too much attention to his for the most part, which is a testament to how well he serves the song.

Live while they're not at the supersonic pace of the late 80s/early 90s, I still think he keeps a damn good rocking beat with a lot of energy.

cheers

natenate101 Posted - 03/08/2017 : 04:55:02
I have to admit that I skip any interview by Dave. Seems like a nice enough guy but there is almost never anything insightful gained from his interviews. I miss Joey's randomness and sarcasm.
Bedbug Posted - 03/07/2017 : 01:41:02
I've heard / read Dave make that Grateful Dead comparison a few times.

I know very little of the Dead.

Are there any Deadheads on the forum who can comment on the analogy?

I always did love that second verse on Break my Body.
Bedbug Posted - 03/06/2017 : 11:08:22
Seems like he writes them fast a lot of the time. Didn't he say somewhere that most of FMRM were just "quickies"?

I've often thought about how he could potentially spend a total of less than one hour writing and recording a song that I end up listening to for hours and hours and hours.

I bet there are song of his I listened to this week that he hasn't touched in 20 years.
McDutchie Posted - 03/06/2017 : 05:46:09
Maybe that explains why he never seems to have quite settled on those lyrics. Every Break My Body performance seems to come in a different variant.
Bedbug Posted - 03/06/2017 : 04:27:46
Great interview. That Dylan ref is savage.

And writing the second verse of Break My Body the day it was first performed live, did I hear that right? Sick.

Yeah that was a little intense to read.
