TACKY-DID-AXIE

Pixilated

Posted in music, Rant by T on August 4, 2010

The Pixies have been rocking out since before I was born. This is clear when they play. They make it very obvious that they know what they are doing.

Countless bands credit the influence The Pixies have had on them and their music. At Splendour over the weekend, they played a very tight set indeed.

Kim Deal’s harmonization and backing vocals are beautiful. However, her between song banter was unappreciated by the crowd.

If you don’t know anything about the gig you are playing, please don’t make useless comments to show us that. If you know little about the country you are in, don’t offend us by showing your own ignorance. And please, don’t ask us if we need to go to school tomorrow.

If I am sitting on a grass amphitheatre around 12am in a remote town, surrounded by thousands of others doing exactly the same, the chances of me having to attend school the next morning are very unlikely.

Another question, why is Deal never shown on the big screen while performing?

We were freezing cold, so we walked away from the stage as the final songs were played.  As we left, “Where is my mind” pounded into the air. Now I’ll show my ignorance and admit that was the one song I wanted to hear.  A lot of people were walking away in front of us. We all stopped and danced for a moment and then continued on our way. We left before the end because although it wasn’t a school night for me, I do have a 1am curfew.
