Just copy-paste the url on some random US proxy

Here for example https://www.usa-proxy.org

Thanks but don't worry. Unless it's saying 'the new album is already recorded and here is the low down on each track' I can manage without. I just hope all US sites are going down the road of blocking access to Europe!

And send him a copy of the compression thread!

See, thereís hope for us.

Pray for the Pixies


I already asked the question a few years ago on twitter, and he wanted to have a second opinion (then another follower seconded my remark). No reaction from Joey (I remember it was the day before he checked into rehab - hope it was not related ! ). Anyway Joey stated multiple times that he really enjoyed Dalgety sound and HC was his best sounding album. So, there's no hope really.

It might have been a political answer.

Sadly I think not. Only Doolittle and Surfer Rosa get the retrospective classic album coverage it seems.

I liked the "I cut myself" moment from the Crackity Jones story and the kid recognizing Dave instead of Cobain at Six Flags.

Interesting. Haven't actually heard it yet -- just read about it. I figured it would sound at least as good as Bad As Me but maybe not

[You canít revert something that has been limited, since some data (peaks) has been lost in the process. We just have to wait for another version. Maybe one day, when loudness war is over and the new marketing idea will be to re-release older albums in their ę†full dynamic range†Ľ format ? One day, maybe...

It just doesn't work that way...

So there doesn't exist some studio recording pre-compression? It got permanently compressed and can't go back?

I was thinking the same thing!

Also, wouldn't it be great if we could make our own fan-edits of albums, like people do with films? Just think if we could get our hands on the multi-tracks of each song, remix and remaster (NO COMPRESSION), make new artwork, play with the track sequencing (maybe add Women of War or take out/add/or replace a few tra cks with Indie Cindy tracks...) rename the album Cephalophore..... that would be really interesting....

Cephalophore would have been a great title wouldn't it. Don't think I'd have been able to pronounce it before hearing the album though.

They probably trust their manager. They follow his advice. I guess they didn't met Dalgety out of the blue.

Wasn't he the same guy that didn't want "Cephalophore" as the album title and used to manage the Spice Girls ? He probably knows what's hype.

Good point, anything Pixies related probably requires a lot of compromise from BF.

when they were recording Head Carrier, Dalgety more or less chose the songs he liked best and had the authority to reject songs intended for the album.

I dunno if BF has mellowed in age but I'm sure during Bossanova he took Gil to a record store and showed him the song lengths of surf songs and Buddy Holly songs to prove his point the songs should be short.

I'm a little surprised they have this whole hearted trust in him. Is he more in touch to know what a youthful (presumably) Pixies fan wants than the band itself?

Just get EDF to produce the damn thing.

As a side note, I listened to Head Carrier on Spotify (recently subscribed) and the sound was awful compared to Poweramp with equaliser adjusted. Indie Cindy sounded amazing in comparison.

On the comparisons between the 2, having given it time to settle, Head Carrier has the better singles but IC is the better album. Both would make good - great 7 song EP's.

I wonder if Joey has something to do with it. He gave a few hints here and there suggesting he actually enjoys this kind of sound. And he definitely loves how HC sounds.

Im still a bit baffled at how Gil's production on Indie Cindy turned out the way it did.... he's always made great sounding rock records...

I just wish he could work with the same guy(s?) that did his Frank Black/Grand Duchy records, they just sounded 10x better than any 2.0 track.
