The Joup Friday Album: The Pixies – Doolittle

doolittleBeen away for a bit. Good to be back. In case you haven’t guessed from my stilted tone I’ve been drinking… and due to my trying like crazy to A) work 9 hours B) commute 2 C) edit my Twin Peaks Festival Video and D) drive to a friend’s to film a new Genesis of Preacher I’m also tired, so the 5 Downtown Browns I’ve consumed over the past 4 hours hit me like a fucking hammer and I’m realizing I volunteered to defib the Joup Friday Album at like 2 hours and 42 minutes (and counting) into Saturday. But I believe in this column, just like I believe in Mr. Grieves.

Despite being one of my favorite bands it’s hard for me to go back to the Pixies very often; reminds me of my early 20s in a way that I guess makes me feel my age. I guess? I mean, I don’t overtly feel like that’s right, but something keeps me from blaring Pixies on a regular basis, and then I happen to throw one of their records on and I fall in love again for a day or two and swear I won’t renig… and then I do.

(Also might be because I’ve always been a bigger fan of Frank Black’s solo career more than I’ve been of the Pixies – esp the Catholics – and I tend to take sides.)

Anyway, this is Doolittle and it’s as good as any other album to kick this thing back off. Listen, buy, worship. But for gad’s sake, breathe.
