Bustin chops is my jangle. Step aside mr chimp. p.s. millions of other bands, even some that play music that's not really indie. Soz to guy who posted loads of links at the bottom of last page, getting round to checking those out. Currently experiencing bands influenced by the Pixies overload.

Another new band who sound like the pixies. Quite a good album this sounds so far, I've only listened to 2 tracks so far. Instantly recognisable as PIxies-esque.

There's also one where they all died 20 years ago and everyone thinks they would have gone on to make millions of great albums. They are revered more. On another one Frank Black is the president and Kim Deal gets abducted by aliens. My favourite one is the one where Joey and Dave record an album inside a volcano on the moon.

Another one. Splashh. Can't say I like them that much so far, vocals are a bit shit, but the music is Pixies as fuck on track 1, total rip off of Wave Of Mutilation.

http://3voor12.vpro.nl/luisterpaal/albums/Splashh.html

I wouldn't bother with the rest of the album, it's wank. Might be slightly more listen-able if it weren't for terrible vocals. The guy can't sing for shit.

Rattlesnake by the band Crystal Antlers sounds great and has a definite Pixies influence...

This is good. I wouldn't say exactly like the Pixies, but at times the sound is a bit like them.

Psychedelic Punk Noise from Arizona. Remind me a bit of Bauhaus and a lot of other things. Good production.

I actually thought Colours by Grouplove might be the Pixies the first time I heard it. I also thought Shake Me Down by Cage the Elephant was them at first too. Only briefly. Thinking you might just be surprised by a new Pixies song debuting on the radio is just a sign of my hopeless optimism.

Probably been posted before but first time seeing this for me. Bring on the Wiggie-giggie by Frankie Folds & The Demigods.

I'd say this could be even better than the original?

There are no bands that sound exactly like the Pixies.

I mean, even the Pixies don't sound exactly like the Pixies.

Man, Nameless Faceless by Courtney Barnett borrows un-apologetically from the Pixies. Guitars, female harmonies. Ammi right?



I'd rather be anywhere or doing anything

Probably me! In fact I was going to write Mclusky a few days ago in this thread but forgot. Falco is the nearest thing to the greatness of BF in my opinion.

Heh. I was meant to go to the Biggest Weekend festival in Belfast today but alas I'm too sick. Anyway, I'm watching it on BBC4 now and guess who pop on stage to accompany Courtney on Nameless Faceless? Kim and Kelley Deal. They were having a blast.

He probably deserves his own thread here. In terms of Mclusky/FOTL albums I'd rate them as followed:

8) Mclusky - My Pain and Sadness is More Sad and Painful than Yours (7/10)
7) Future of the Left - Travels With Myself and Another (8/10)
6) Future of the Left - The Peace and Truce of Future of the left (8/10)
5) Future of the Left - The Plot Against Common Sense (8/10)
4) Future of the Left - Curses (8/10)
3) Future of the Left - How to Stop Your Brain in an Accident (9/10)
2) Mclusky - The Difference Between Me and You is That I'm Not on Fire (9/10)
1) Mclusky - Mclusky Do Dallas (10/10)

I never got into FOTL that much, I thought they sounded more mainstream, straightforward shouty punk as opposed to something more high brow.

I think I'd say (as far as Mclusky is concerned)

1. My Pain
2. The Difference
3. Mclusky Do Dallas

Controversial I know but The Difference is the first album of theirs I heard and I rate their last album because I just fucking like it and it's got Lucky Lucky Jim Jim on it which I thought was nicely experimental of them to include a more or less death metal song in there, at that time. Bear in mind at this time that the whole pure unadulterated death metal thing was just surfacing into the mainstream world so it was still quite edgy. Nowadays it's a regular feature at the OAP disco.

My mate, who I think can probably be credited with introducing me to McLusky and also Pavement didn't like their 3rd album at all! This is despite me lending him it in good faith only for him to pawn it for a 4 pack of Stella. It was a nice cardboard sleeve as well. I have forgiven him and he gives me a free CD every time I visit now because he feels guilty about it, which he should.

Not as bad the time I left two limited edition 6" THICK vinyl single specials of The Kills - Love is a Deserter with a mate in good faith though.
