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.

I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with this album.. I love it cos it's quite obviously brilliant but it also makes me a little angry because it's the biggest missed opportunity of all time and I really don't understand the decisions behind the runtime and tracklist...

Why put pretty much 50% Pixies songs on it when it's a FB&TC's album?!? It would've been the perfect opportunity to capture the spirit of what a Catholics live show was all about and also would've given us excellent quality live versions of so many other Frank solo songs mixed in with the amazing Catholics versions of the Pixies songs.... Such a shame... I often wonder how hard it would be to persuade The Bureau to release the rest of the show (as a digital only release perhaps)? Next year is the 20th anniversary so it'd make sense. Either that or another full show from 2001?
