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

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.

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!

"As for the next album, Santiago says they won't know what it will sound like until it gets recorded, but on his end, he wants it to sound as raw as possible."

Was hoping for something a little more past tense...

I’m just hoping “raw” is another way to say “without any of that compression sounding garbage that interfered with the last two albums”

"Raw" as opposed to "polished" and more elaborated Norton productions (including Indie Cindy), if you want my opinion.

Head Carrier is the album Joey is most proud of since "the first one" (https://youtu.be/_gUjA1Gnqzo?t=5m29s). I'm sure he wants to continue in that direction. Oh well.

Let's hope he's into new ideas since then.

Heres my 1 cent about the whole thing

- Black is cool and doesn't really care. He's not that fussy anymore about his band and does what his audience wants.
- Joey is very proud of the band history (remember he absolutely wanted a female bass player to replace Deal when Black didn't really care ?). He also wants the records to sound like early Pixies.
Dalgety is known for producing modern "raw" records, so that's just what he wants. He fell in love with how Head Carrier sounded and wants more of that. Black goes along with that, because he still feels a bit guilty about the initial Pixies breakup and tries his best not to be an ass and respect Joey's vision about the band.
- Dave doesn't care
- Paz respects the band history and does her best Kim impression because that's what the audience like and why she was hired for.

Next album: Head Carrier 2.0

I don’t disagree with any of what you wrote picpic.

You’re probably right.

The only thing I would add is:

“About 10 people on earth care enough to discuss this, and they are here on the forum.”

Bedbug, I think you're absolutely right. It's somehow sad to see Charles' extensive body of non-Pixies work shrouded in the heyday of what came before.

They don’t have a setlist ? Really ? Wow. Never heard that in an interview.

Now we need to know how they feel about Kurt Cobain.

I'd add that it's sad that it seems the prolific years are over for the most part, and there probably isn't a chance of the Pixies reviving some Catholics or solo material live. I love the new Pixies stuff, but the pace, quantity, and exploratory variety are tamped down. Also, they're playing what folks want to hear, and more power to them, but I for one would love to hear a lot more of the new material in the setlists. I caught them on the Weezer tour and IIRC Silver Snail and All the Saints were the only IC/HC numbers.

I don't know...playing the old hits are tiring in my opinion, and i'm pretty sure a good amount could agree...i didn't go see them this time around or even last year...I've seen them enough...what else do they have to offer? I love the Pixies, but the schtick is getting tired, at least for me...but I can't really blame them to continue to tour or such...so no real hard feelings, i'm just personally not going to partake in going to the shows for a while or ever until something new and interesting comes out from them, which i don't know will ever happen again...

but what the pixies did from 1987-1992 won't be forgotten in my eyes :) time to move on

Do you think it has anything to do with their american audience ? They played more of the new stuff on european tours I think.

Anyway, 2018 is obviously a greatest hits year before new stuff in 2019 (which hasn't been recorded yet according to Joey I suppose).

Yeah I don't know - could be. It was the exact same show they played here in 2017, only abbreviated. Enjoyable enough, but predictable.

Also it probably doesn't help my frame of mind that I've been listening to a ton of live Grateful Dead the last several months. Getting spoiled by the intense variety and variation on the same songs over decades of performance.

One of the most memorable points about the last time I saw The Pixies (Brixton 2016) was that they played *every single song* from Head Carrier. This makes me think that the band are fully aware of what the informed audience wants....

The “Informed Audience” - man I hear ya. Probably impossible to have an Informed Audience in the States these days. Most everyone is overinformed by a few things and subsequently underinformed on essentially everything else.

Same here, darnit. Well, gonna be a bit of a longer wait than we anticipated. I'm not a patient person at all so it's gonna be a rough rest of 2018.
