Pixies to Release 4-Song EP


There was time when I was vehemently against The Pixies – one of my favorite bands – getting back together. I know that sounds counter intuitive, but think about it. If there’s one thing I like more than The Pixies it’s Frank Black aka Black Francis and when the band first began doing “reunion” shows circa 2003 I desperately feared it would interfere with the seemingly endless supply of original material Black was in the midst of releasing. I also feared the old axiom of fabled wisdom, “You can’t go home again”.

Well, hit high speed to 2013 and in the interim Mr. Francis has given us such a wealth of material – both under his own ever-evolving nom du plume and the luscious Grand Duchy with wife Violet Clarke – that when The Pixies dropped Bag Boy several months ago I pretty much sat back and said, “Bring it on. You can’t go home again, but home can go with you, and listening to The Pixies new 4 song EP – just announced as available today on the band’s website – makes me happy to the very depth of my soul. If you’re a Pixies or a Frank Black fan it should pretty much have the exact effect, so saunter on over to pixiesmusic.com and download a piece of future history.
