It was probably the owner or trainer who named it.

I had a couple of euro on Seabass too. Interestingly, The Everybody have a track called The Last Sea Bass. Actually, that's not interesting at all.

Houston Press - They're Ba-a-ack!: The Six Best Coachella Reunion Performances.

YouTube - Pixies live at Coachella 2004: In Heaven / Where Is My Mind?

4. Pixies: 11 years had passed since the Pixies had been onstage together and in the meantime they had influenced and spawned countless bands in the indie-rock world. Finally reclaiming their title as the kings and queen of indie, they came together in 2004 for a brief tour before taking the stage at Coachella for their first major show of their reunion. As of 2012, they're still together and the music world loves them for it.

Somerville mayor rocks on for 12th radio contest win

April 19, 2012|By Matt Byrne, Town Correspondent, Globe Staff

YouTube - Here Comes Your Man - Pixies.

By Matt Byrne, Town Correspondent

Somerville Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone made it an even dozen Thursday after he chalked up another win on radio station WFNX's weekly song contest.

The mayor beat Johnny Earle, founder of the T-shirt company Johnny Cupcakes, which has locations on Newbury Street and in Los Angeles.

Earle's selection, "Back to School," by the Deftones, was bounced by some serious social media power, backed by followers of the band The Pixies. Curtatone selected one of the band's most commercially recognized tunes, "Here Comes Your Man."

The Pixies promoted Curatone's selection, and encouraged its 78,000 Twitter followers to vote for him.

Couldn't resist posting this:

Not that Pixies...

Planning continues for Rum Rebellion ‘Revue’

Tuesday, May 08, 2012 1:03 PM

IRON RIVER— Final preparations are taking place for the sixth annual Rum Rebellion Revue, which will take place on Friday, July 20, at 7 p.m. at Windsor Auditorium.
This year’s Revue themes are all-new, note organizers.
“The 2012 Revue is different in that unlike previous Revues that were sponsored by Iron River Community Concepts, this summer’s Revue is sponsored by the Iron County Historical Museum Society. However, that is the only aspect of the Revue that is unique.”

Again this summer, the veteran Revue cast will be returning to give voice to the radio dramatization that brings local history to life. The musical group, the Pixies, will be providing their own style of entertainment during the performance.
For three of the past five Revues, the theme has been the 1920 Rum Rebellion in Iron River. However, for 2012, there will be all new themes.
The Revue will feature the time span of 1882-1932 and will commemorate the 50-year anniversary of iron mining in the Iron River area.
The audience will hear from those involved in the formative years of the mining industry.
There will also be a segment on the history of the Iron County Fair, which began in the late 1880s. The fair schedule nearly paralleled the 50-year span, having first taken place in the downtown business district.
To wrap up the program, there will be thumbnail sketches of some of the early pioneer business people of the era, including how some of them arrived in Iron County.
Interspersed throughout the radio show will be musical numbers by the Pixies.
The Pixies have been fan favorites each year as they sing and dance their way into the hearts of the audience. The Pixies have become well-known for their dancing but are also accomplished singers.

The Iron County Historical Museum Society is sponsoring the Rum Rebellion Revue as a fundraiser. Advance tickets at $8 each will be going on sale in mid-June for the July 20th event.

Pixies bore Black.

quote:
I have to ask, do you get annoyed by the constant comparison of this to the Pixies?

Francis: I don't really compare it -- it's just my life. When I'm in some interview situations I'm asked about the Pixies and what their plans are, but it's not like I have to do three hours of interviews every single day. With the Pixies I really don't do interviews for them anymore, I stopped because there's not really anything to talk about at the moment. I always do interviews in regards to my solo records or with Grand Duchy. I'm asked and I accept it as part of what you folks are looking for to balance out your piece.

15 years since the passing of Brainiac’s Timmy Taylor


"After working with Kim Deal of The Breeders/Pixies, playing Lollapalooza, touring with Beck, and releasing albums on Touch & Go and Grass, the band signed a substantial recording agreement with Interscope Records. Pre-production for their fourth album was in motion when Timmy Taylor passed away in a car accident on May 23, 1997. A memorial show featuring The Breeders, Guided By Voices, Swearing at Motorists, Mink, and Lazy was held in Dayton shortly after."

Seems like Kim is doing a solo record, found this on youtube:

"On Monday, April 16, Kim Deal played for a full house at the Echo Country Outpost her new tunes from her upcoming solo album (which we were asked not to tape, so out of respect I conceded.) "Let's see how this goes. I have played with The Pixies, The Breeders and The Amps, but I've never played by myself, I've played with my sister, so I guess that's like playing by yourself." This is the last song she played, and the only old song she did..."

While Kim has been doing her own thing, Kelley has been out touring with that guy from Iron and Wine.

This is why I don't believe the rumors about new Pixies. Kim in in LA doing her own thing. Thompson is back East. Dave and Joe are in LA doing their own things.

Interesting list. Nice to see Oh My Golly included; helluva underrated track. There seems to be a good few dopes dismissing the last two albums. Disgusting.

From a review in the Irish version of The Sunday Times' Culture magazine, of artist Alice Maher's show 'Becoming' at the IMMA here in Dublin:

"Back in the main venue, in the lecture room, lights hang from long wires at varying heights, casting light onto the spot where a student might place their hands or books. Each bulb is weighted with a heavy metal bead. One beam highlights some text carved into the wooden desk. Lyrics from I've Been Tired, a Pixies song, end with the words: "And while we're at it honey, why don't you tell me one of you're biggest fears?"

Most Underrated Albums of All Time

quote:

7. Pixies – Trompe Le Monde (1991)

Pixies purists have an issue with Trompe Le Monde that I can’t wrap my head around. Did they want Doolittle Mk II? Was Gil Norton’s mix a little too murky, or could a classic Pixies record simply not include a song that Black Francis didn’t write? There is no doubting the brilliance of Doolittle ( or Surfer Rosa for that matter) but Trompe Le Monde is a tour de force. It’s moody, delicate, abrasive and – at times – utterly heartbreaking. From the sparkling pop perfection of ‘Motorway to Roswell’, the ingenious key solo in ‘Alec Eiffel’, the unbridled aggression of ‘Sad Punk’ to the fierce nonsense of ‘Subbacultcha’ Trompe Le Monde is the Pixies in full flight. It’s just a pity that so many fans can’t see past Doolittle to this perfect parting shot. – Sarah Smith




I've always felt the same. Pains me when people reject this album (and Bossanova).

Trompe's a masterpiece. I love the flow of the album, and the climax of Motorway. Navajo was always the epilogue, for me.

And the first three songs...perfection!

That reminded me of this Bob Mould quote on the start of Trompe

quote:
MOULD: There are moments in your life where you hear something and say, « I know that person, » or « I understand the root of their aesthetic, where their happiness or pain comes from. » Whether it's the Germs or the Pixies. You say, « Wait, that's the voice of reason in my life. » When I heard the new Pixies record I was kind of jealous. In its first four minutes the record lays out more ideas than some bands do in their careers. Pixies records are a big challenge. You've really got to dig in. a 6/8 break with a walkie-talkie? Critics might hone in on that, but I'm not sure if everyone gets it. And there's this great turn, a phrase, it's kind of like the « Popcorn » break, it just comes along at a perfect time.
FRANCIS: Yeah! We've got another song called « The Surf Epic , » three songs strung together by the « Popcorn » break.

Surfer Rosa is another amazing album with an incredible flow of songs. That and Trompe are my favorites. Thanks for the link, that's a good site I'd forgotten about; it was nice to re-read some of the articles/interviews.

Scroll down for a decent piece on Levitate Me. I heard the BBC version before the CoP / Purple Tape version and in my opinion it's the superior version - I love the intensity of the vocals.
