I love the Live at Melkweg album and I have no idea who plays on it. Could anybody fill me in? Oh, and how is that organ solo at the start of Gouge Away so damn transcendental???

Q: Where do Pixies keep their instruments when they're not playing?
A: Debasement.

This page has some credits: https://www.allmusic.com/album/live-at-melkweg-amsterdam-march-24-2001-mw0002317009/credits

Their format is a bit messy, so here's a cleaner list of who plays what:
  • Frank Black -- Guitar, Vocals
  • Scott Boutier -- Drums
  • Rick Gilbert -- Guitar, Keyboards, Pedal Steel, Vocals (Background)
  • David McCaffery (McCaffrey?) -- Bass, Vocals (Background)
  • Dave Phillips -- Guitar, Pedal Steel, Vocals (Background)

It is superb isn't it!
Definitely my favourite Catholics-Pixies song
There are a few cracking versions out there.
This is probably the best with a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBXYjtcreTA

Definitely EDF that started the whole organ thing, and love how Frank bought it back all those years later.

Dancing the Manta Ray is also great, the keyboards sound gives it an awesome B movie feel.
