Bustin chops is my jangle. Step aside mr chimp. p.s. millions of other bands, even some that play music that's not really indie. Soz to guy who posted loads of links at the bottom of last page, getting round to checking those out. Currently experiencing bands influenced by the Pixies overload.

Another new band who sound like the pixies. Quite a good album this sounds so far, I've only listened to 2 tracks so far. Instantly recognisable as PIxies-esque.

Vice versa.

There's also one where they all died 20 years ago and everyone thinks they would have gone on to make millions of great albums. They are revered more. On another one Frank Black is the president and Kim Deal gets abducted by aliens. My favourite one is the one where Joey and Dave record an album inside a volcano on the moon.

I'm just waiting for the 'Backing vocalists EXACTLY like Kim Deal' thread to pop up after hearing Bagboy.

Another one. Splashh. Can't say I like them that much so far, vocals are a bit shit, but the music is Pixies as fuck on track 1, total rip off of Wave Of Mutilation.

http://3voor12.vpro.nl/luisterpaal/albums/Splashh.html

I wouldn't bother with the rest of the album, it's wank. Might be slightly more listen-able if it weren't for terrible vocals. The guy can't sing for shit.

Rattlesnake by the band Crystal Antlers sounds great and has a definite Pixies influence...

This is good. I wouldn't say exactly like the Pixies, but at times the sound is a bit like them.

Psychedelic Punk Noise from Arizona. Remind me a bit of Bauhaus and a lot of other things. Good production.

I actually thought Colours by Grouplove might be the Pixies the first time I heard it. I also thought Shake Me Down by Cage the Elephant was them at first too. Only briefly. Thinking you might just be surprised by a new Pixies song debuting on the radio is just a sign of my hopeless optimism.
