Pixies Cover Neil Young
While rehearsing with a newly reunited lineup sans Kim Deal for an upcoming world tour, The Pixies dropped a surprise four-song-EP last week. They also played a surprise show at the Los Angeles club, The Echo on Friday, September 6. Their 26 song set was full of songs from earlier albums, Come on Pilgrim and Surfer Rosa. Three songs came from their newest EP while the group ran through two unreleased songs. In addition, the group covered Neil Young’s “Winterlong” and The Jesus and Mary Chain’s “Head On.” Oddly enough the band busted out the Young song during the Lockn’ Festival, where the guitarist was supposed to play with Crazy Horse before Frank “Poncho” Sampedro injured his hand. The Pixies will perform at Los Angeles, CA’s El Rey Theatre this evening.
