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.

The Pixies are one of the top 3 overrated bands ever. In order:
3: Velvet Underground
2: Pixies
1: Replacements

Hey, if you like everything, you really don’t like anything. I like a strong opinion, just shows he’s paying attention. Not everyone has to agree with him.

There’s a difference between liking a band and saying they that they are overrated.

Growing up during the Nirvana/Pearl Ham grunge era and delving deeper into early 90’s indie rock and the sounds that came from that time the Pixies are an underrated band in
my opinion, they came out of Boston and absolutely shred, Surfer Rosa is one of the best albums to come out of that time and scene – check it out, overrated please? not everyone sounds like string cheese
