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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
