or Planet of Sound.

A-

..


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.

I thought of an A too LOL maybe it's the same band. Pretty obvious one really..

C-

Clinic

Me asking the lead singer in a live web chat session during the release of Do it! in 2008:

[the_wizard] 10:38 pm: Your vocal style in DT and DP, both of which are very similar, reminds me a lot of Frank Black in his early days with the Pixies, do you think that is a fair comparison?
[ade] 10:39 pm: that's fair although we are probably both drawing from the same punk influences like Crime and the Screamers

I can't think of a D either. Let's say we make it bands influenced by the "Pixies sound' or bands that inspired the Pixies sound?

In which case I say-

Stalled at O.

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