She’s actually a really good artist. I could see her as the next bassist after Paz. She’s got love for a totally underrated FBF song.

Don't want Paz to go
No Paz, no deal ;)

Very cool about that tattoo. Not only a b-side of course

Far-fetched to say it's a quote from The Thing rather than from The Happening...

I think I remember BF tweeting something like « What was I smoking back then ? » about those lines when rehearsing for the IC tour (Shattuck era).
Of course they never actually performed the song.

I don't have any Pixies tattoos but then again I have also never played Slide Away.

I feel like the B-Sides album was a pretty popular purchase for a while, but in either case she’s got some Bossanova etched in her body

Sad to read people calling The Happening a deep cut and obscure. I reckon it's probably the best song on the album (maybe, too many to choose). Cyrus has good taste, I think she covered The Replacements a few years ago too.

Wouldn’t we expect the news to say that anything after Doolittle is obscure?

Both songs are amazing

Her dad being in Mulholland Drive could explain some of her good taste

You can easily spot the best songs on Bossaa & Trompe: they never play them live.
Maybe too much studio work and hard to « cover » on stage

The end of 1.0 was the only time to see those songs. Lots of emotion there and then too. Maybe it’s best left unsolved really.

She was alright in one of the latest episodes of Black Mirror, and she did a cover of a NIN song (Head like a hole) I suppose anything goes these days in the world of music.

Acid Reign, about as obnoxious British (punk) thrash metal from the 80's as you can get, now sort of reformed and have a new album out in a few weeks. They've done a cover version of a Suzanne Vega song on it (Blood Makes Noise) and she agreed to sing one line on it (recorded and sent by email). About the most unlikely musical collaboration I could ever have thought of.

Their official twitter put up something related to this song, I was kind of hoping it was a rehearsal hint. A Miley Cyrus is significantly less exciting - nice lyric to get though!
