Live in Japan!

Not a new setlist, but still a nice one:

I would have been very happy with that setlist. I get the impression they're really enjoying these Japanese dates.

Yes, pleased to see Classic Masher in the mix.

Glad I saw them on both the Head Carrier and brief Beneath the Eyrie tour so that I could hear those songs live. They played everything from BTE, except an aborted St. Nazaire, which ironically is the only song from that album still in rotation.

Some dates here are normal setlists (Melbourne and Adelaide I believe).

I’m a little disappointed in the Doggerel song selection, they seem to be playing the exact same 4 songs, 3 of which are (IMO) some of the weakest on the album. I was definitely getting used to them playing the majority of their new albums. It was also a really short show here in Melbourne night 1. Hoping for more Doggerel tonight (but not optimistic)

Yeah. If I saw anything from Doggerel live, I'd want it to be Dregs (this would BRING DOWN THE HOUSE), or Get Simulated, or maybe Thunder...the last ones I'd want to see are Moon and Vault of Heaven...Though I admit I think Sorry is finally growing on me.

Well, kudos to the band on Melbourne night 2 not playing any duplicate songs from the first night for the first hour of the show tonight. Unfortunately, that meant zero Doggerel songs tonight :-(

St Nazare sounded particularly awesome now though. Death Horizon fell completely flat.

I'm listening to the Pixies show from Cologne summer 2022 and they've started Gouge Away with that extended intro with the repeating bass line & Joey's spacey sounds. I remember reporting in ~2015 on setlists.fm that Pixies performed the song this way at the Horseshoe Tavern show in Toronto (a tiny venue for a few hundred people at most). At that time, people thought I was joking but now Pixies do it at every show :-)

Show in Christchurch last night was cool. Band seemed to be having a great time. Just a little banter, but I've seen enough Pixies shows to know that usually it's zilch.
Things I remember....
Really enjoyed the documentary at the start.
Frank introduced the show as they walked on the stage - he had to really think what year Surfer Rosa was released, but he got it right....
Joeys guitar was a little low in the mix for a while, but that got sorted.
I really enjoyed the long outro to Gigantic. As did the crowd - which went balistic during the song. Speaking of which, Paz did a fantastic job. Hadn't seen her in the band before, but I was impressed. I knew I would be, but the chmeistry seemed fantastic between them all.
I looked like Frank had to check the setlist sitting by the drunk kit a few times - which amused me for some reason.
The Doolittle songs they played at the end got the biggest reception. Not unusual there, but maybe the crowd had warmed up a little by then as well. Here Comes Your Man was fantastic, and got the most singalonging.
La La Love you was slightly chaotic, but really great to see again - seen it a few other times.
Doing Winterlong as the final song of the set was great. Really enjoyed the extended outro with Joeys shredding.
Extra songs played: Gouge Away, Debaser, Head On, Here Comes Your Man, Wave Of Mutilation (UK Surf), La La La Love You, Winterlong

I recorded a few of the songs and uploaded them to Youtube:
Something Against You: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXF44OncRDA
River Euphrates: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjN2CgfZFL0
Oh My Golly!, Vamos & I'm Amazed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JV7eRvehyWY
Head On & Here Comes Your Man: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wfqru3NzO4
Winterlong: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuH9ScniNkw

Thanks for those videos! They do sound great.

I really don't get why they are now not playing any songs from new albums. I just genuinely don't get it. They keep saying how proud they are of the album. Don't they want to get it out there? Or just genuinely want to play their recent efforts, for fun or something? Pixies will always be a mystery to me.

Have they dropped that little rarities set between CoP and SR to play Doolittle songs?

It was hard keeping myself standing still! Love that song. I'd love to have heard the ep version as the longer outro is my fav, but can't complain.
Glad you liked the vids.

If you’re talking about Build High/ Rock A My Soul/ Down to the well, those were only played on the CoP/SR mini-tour in 2018.
According to setlist.fm they had already dropped those on the same CoP/SR 2020 tour just before covid.
Build High sounded great.
Sigh.

That's my clip, I'd forgotten that! :)

Yeah, I thought they were part of the attraction of the tour - much like the Doolittle B sides getting an airing back in 2009. Didn't realize they'd been gone a while but seems a shame to let them slide. It's not like they get played at standard shows

Clearly the band will have their own view on what's popular/what works/what doesn't, but it's a shame to lose those songs. I had to miss the London show on that tour, but loved seeing the videos.

Puzzles me why 'Down to the Well' hasn't been part of the regular set throughout!

Really ? Nice !!! I think that’s the only recording we have of those 3 rarities, so thanks a lot for sharing.

Build High definitely rocked. Do you know any other clip of them performing this song in 2018 ?

Now about Down to the Well: this was typically one of those lost Bossa/Trompe gems that I dreamed of hearing live again for years. And, like all those lost songs, I was pretty sur they’would never, ever’play’it again. And then, out of the blue, poof, it’s here.
And I don’t really know how to feel about this live rendition. Don’t get me wrong: It’s great. Of course. But at the same time it’s not what I expected. I don’t know why. Or maybe my expectations were too high.
I’m kind of caught in a dilemma: do I really want to hear Bird Dream or Najavo ? Or Happening on the next tour? Or is it better to leave them were the are for eternity ?

Anybody else wondering if they are getting down this month to practice some Doggerel songs in advance of the upcoming tour dates?

Great video from Boston last week of Who's More Sorry Now.

Paz is all smiles and crowd seems really into it, singing along. Great guitar work by Joey and Charles too

I think this song is a real winner
