Lead singer factoid - Frank Black/Black Francis' given name is Charles Michael Kittridge Thompson IV. Pixies are one of my top 2 or 3 bands without a doubt
Nice one. (I still prefer the Placebo cover, but hey, it's a free world :) )
@dutchzaphod Free world, music is so subjective, etc, etc, etc - but with all due respect..... that Placebo cover doesn't remotely hold a candle to the original. Just my opinion of course, but that's a stretch if I've ever heard one.
@KParkBro @dutchzaphod The Pixies have such a terrific back catalog of work you are probably best to ask which album is best... personally I'd have to say Doolittle.
@spook_school Yeah I'd go Doolittle followed by Surfer Rosa and I think highly of Trompe LeMonde as well.
