I would say Down to the Well Pell Session is better than the Bossanova version.

In fact, the album version of DTTW is one of the tamest in my opinion.

Thoughts? Others?

Not a demo but I like the alternate River Euphrates version. Way better than the album one.

I like the Surfer version better, but that one is good too.

Mhhh... not a fan of the under-mixed vocals. Surfer version sounds more like an interlude. Alternate version sounds like an actual song.

I also like the BBC simili-live Manta Ray version over the B-Side one.

That reminds me picpic, since you know a whole lot more about guitars and stuff than I do:

What is that scratching sound on the Down To The Well Peel Session, about 30 seconds in?

Is that Frank’s guitar? It can’t be Joey’s.

Sounds like BF jap tele if you're talking about the "chicka chicka chika" kind of sound. He's hitting the stings while muting them with his left hand probably.

Dang, I loved his guitar sound back then. (To think he butchered all of his japanese teles brings a tear to my eye. They sounded glorious.
I like his current and more "vintage" guitar sound, but the jap tele sounded wild -and they did the Hey clean tone better than any other guitar he played with)

Yeah we should talk more about guitars here. Even if Pixies rig is pretty simple. Latest trivia: I noticed Charles vintage SG made a comeback on the current tour. That was probably the most exciting thing on this tour. Meh.

I call that sound chain-bell guitar. I really love it too.

My favorite demo is Wave of Mutilation off Doolittle 25. You can hear a nascent Adda Lee in it.

Funny thing is, his current vintage Tele doesn’t really have that nice bright bell-sounding twang his old jap had (even if those were supposed to be metal guitars, the exact opposite of a telecaster. But they had split coils, I think most of his sound came from a split bridge humbucker back then). Nowadays he seems to favor a more muddier/dirty sound. In fact the whole band sounds a bit more like that.

Need a guitar topic.
