Black Francis with hair. Read the review and tell me you’re not jealous that you weren’t there.

And The Sugarcubes in the former Yugoslavia. Various rumours and reports that Einar’s off-key yelping at this gig was a major factor in the break up of the former Yugoslavia still persist to this day.

A prize for anyone that can tell me in the comments who or what the black butterfly was a teaser ad for.

Everett True reviews The Pixies, Ride, Cud, The Miltown Brothers & The Boo Radleys live at the Crystal Palace Bowl.

“The Pixies are living affirmation that rock is still alive and kicking its way far into our lives. The greatest rock band on the planet? Name me another of their stature.”

I have to agree with ET and it’s really pleasing to think that unlike many bands who were puffed up to dizzy heights only to vaporise to nothing outside of whatever crest of a scene they rode up on, The Pixies music is still as vital and compelling now as it was then. Truly a great, great band.

I just love The Pixies. It all still sounds so, so good. The film made to document their comeback gigs is well worth watching too. Can anyone tell me if this the same Jonh Wilde without the awkwardly placed h?
