I was never lucky enough to make it to a game at Mile High.

I did finally travel in for a game at Invesco, though... and loved it. Thought it was a brilliant facility and was the most enjoyable experience I've ever had at a game.

After going to dumps like Candlestick and Jack Murphy, Invesco was a welcome relief.

Well I guess it depends on your definition of what bands it is considered "cool" to like. They won't be recognized by most of the Top 40 radio listening crowd these days, but I think you might be surprised just how popular the Pixies are amongst the college age rock enthusiast/hipster crowd. When I go to festivals or concerts I see Pixies shirts all the time. The fact they're kind of from the past makes them even more respectable to that crowd.

Either way, great great band.

Saw the National a little over a month ago. Very good show. Another good one was The Walkmen. Perfect show for a small, crowded, dimly lit club late at night.

The pixies are a mainstream band from when real indie bands could break into the mainstream. Now I'd say radiohead are the exception. Imitation crap like coldplay rules that space now... and the rest is all katy perry and bubble gum.

They only broke mainstream in Europe.

The closest they came in the US was when "Where is My Mind?" got play in Fight Club. Now a bunch of goobers who only know them from that soundtrack come to the shows as well as dorks like me who burned ruts into their records in the early 90's.

In terms of radio play Frank and Kim actually did better on their own. When you listen to the albums itís beyond my comprehension. Some of Franks stuff is pretty good though.

The first three albums are exceptional. Then he started losing his muse. He has released some stuff recently that is more inspired, and more like Teenager of the Year. My personal fave is Cult of Ray, which I think is the most underrated album of its era.

Love the Breeders too. I have seen them play several times, the first of which was on their Last Splash tour.

A football stadium should be a dump.

I thought Invesco was very sterile. And not very loud actually. I had always heard about the insanely loud Bronco fans. The day I went it was like a funeral and the Broncos won. I suspect as I never went to a ball game, only concerts at Mile High, that it was much louder in there than Invesco.

Great song. I'm not a big Pixies fan, they get a lot of credit for being some kind of revolutionary band out of Boston but their music was never that great or "revolutionary." I'm much, much more impressed with Frank Blacks solo career. I saw him live in Boulder, fantastic show, real power man on the guitar when live. Frank Black and The Catholics is Black's latest creation, I highly recommend them to anyone who loves solid American rock with Black's lyrical genius and penchent for creating his own unique sound...

Great song. I'm not a big Pixies fan, they get a lot of credit for being some kind of revolutionary band out of Boston but their music was never that great or "revolutionary." I'm much, much more impressed with Frank Blacks solo career. I saw him live in Boulder, fantastic show, real power man on the guitar when live. Frank Black and The Catholics is Black's latest creation, I highly recommend them to anyone who loves solid American rock with Black's lyrical genius and penchent for creating his own unique sound...

The Pixies were what radio-friendly bands like Nirvana, Bush, Radiohead (in the mid 90's), Oasis, and countless other bands of the era tried to be. Their influence is still present in modern indie music as well. There is a thread running through underground music that extends back to the Pixies much the way that a thread runs through much of heavier rock music back to Led Zeppelin.

The Pixies were credited by Kurt Cobain for being the muse for "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and much of that Album. Radiohead credited the Pixies for inspiration as well. Thom Yorke and Greenwood are both big fans who tried to be the Pixies up until Amnesiac/Kid A, when they instead tried to be like the Pixies in terms of creating their own sound.

The Pixies are the only band I have ever heard that have accomplished the difficult task of making avant-garde surrealist punk/pop music. Its brilliant. The writing is brilliant and the music is layered with alot of depth.

One word: overrated

The thing abaout American rock is it's all barrowed from somewhere. I don't really care what Cobain says about the Pixies, Smells Like Teen Spirit was every bit the product of the Seattle music scene where as the Pixies have a very East Coast bias when it comes to their sound. I keep hearing this rumor the Pixies were some kind of trend setter and I'm not seeing it. Fact is, there were many great bands around at the same time, Pixies were not alone.

Seems to me the real fact is that nobody is trying to say the Pixies were the only good band around.

I guess it's an opinion. Pixies had talent, no doubt, I'm a big Frank Black believer, he's quickly become one of my favorite rock artists around. If other good bands claim the Pixies were the primary inspiration for their creative expression, fine, I can't argue with that. I just don't get it. They have an edgy sound but no more than early bands like The Pretenders, who came before the pixies of the world.

I disagree with the lots of bands around at the same time thing. I think right place and time has a lot to do with it. By 1988, hardcore had died out and other than a handful of bands who were either megastars (U2) or flirting with that at that point (R.E.M.), there really wasn't much to hang your hat on at the time outside of mascara heavy metal, top 40 synth pop and hip hop which was just hitting overdrive then. The Pixies had very little in the way of competition as a result, explaining the huge influence on the next wave of bands that came afterwards. Husker Du would've been just as big (or maybe even bigger) had drugs not got to Grant Hart and sunk the band when it was on the very brink of what R.E.M. had launched itself into in 1987.

Depends on where you look. As far as American bands, yah, I'll agree there wasn't a whole lotta competition. Overseas was different, some English bands were really starting to make some great music. I love me some Jesus and Mary Chain or Wolfgang Press or early James not to mention what was the culmination of punk rock in bands like Husker Du and the power of early Jane's Addiction and other rock steady bands in the US. JMHO...

Yeah, I kept it mainly on the USA side of things. The UK was a very different situation at that time.

I disagree in that Husker Du was over by mid to late '87 and bands such as Jane's Addiction, Rollins Band, Dinosaur Jr, et. al, while all active at the same time, didn't really get going/break out till after the Pixies did in '87/88. So, for about I'd say a year and a half, they were pretty much the main/only attraction in the US for that whole Indy scene (with R.E.M. & The Replacements both absorbed into the majors by then).

While that may or may not be entirely true, it certainly seemed that way at the time.

Now, I whole hartedly agree that American music was hitting a new low in the 1980's with re-hashed glam-metal-mega-bands like Poisen and Ratt and what not, but if you scratched the surface of what was happening all around Europe and North America at that time, a rebellious sound sprouting up all over the place like wildfire with bands like Red Lorry Yellow Lorry in England and The Cowboy Junkies in Canada and REM and B-52's out of the American South and stuff up in NW part of the country, I see a panarama of fantastic music... but that's just me...

I'm a Meat Puppets fan as well, and they had their niche. Much different than the Pixies.

Listen to the Pixies' "Gouge Away", and then listen to "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Note the drumming patterns, the guitar leads, the quietLOUD dynamic, etc. After that song hit, a new production pattern had been established that was repeated for the next 10 years.

I disagree.

It wasnt just the filling of a niche that made the Pixies what they were. It was the content, the live power, and the violence in their music. Being genre partners doesnt make Husker Du an equivalent. The Pixies' albums were intellectually satisfying on many levels and physically satisfying as well. The hooks were there and the songs were varied. Husker Du didnt have a "Debaser", much less a "Velouria".

Personally, I would take the Minutemen over Husker Du.

Junkies were pretty big all the way down the Atlantic coast scene for quite a while. Actually got to hang out with them after their show at George Washington University in DC back in '87 (Trinity Session). Cool group of people. Pretty liberal/anti-war, but my buddy and I were both Marine Seargents at the time and we hung out and drank beers with them all night after the show. They had an off day the next day and we helped get a "DC tour itinerary" set up for them. Ended up going with them and having a great time, I'd have married Margot Timmins in a heartbeat.

Pretty much got it right. Alan the base player was the only one that wasn't family. Micheal was the lead axe and wrote most of their stuff. Peter was the youngest and the drummer. He and I hit it off right away. I played percussion in the Colorado Youth Symphony as a kid, and Pete was a true percussionist. Was a fantastic weekend in DC with them. Pissed their tour manager off as they pretty much just ducked out for two days and enjoyed DC. Ended up crashing at the Barracks in Quantico with my buddy and I on Sunday night. Great weather, and for some reason...everything just worked out perfect. Spent a very cool rainy Sunday afternoon at the Library Of Congress (one of my favorite places in DC) with the Air Force Strings playing Mozart. I really would have married Margot by the end of the day on Sunday. Special, special gal. She gave me a Saint Christopher medal that I have worn ever since. I was in a CH-53 crash in 2001 (1st Gulf War) that I ended up being one of three people not seriously F'ed up. Hold Margot and her St. Chris responsible. Have all of their albums and was able to hook back up with them here in Georgia for their "Miles from our home" and "Long journey home" tours.

Yes. Under that moniker I had some of my douche-iest moments and retired it.

HA.


Well, I'm about to be the owner of a new (to me) 06 legacy gt limited sedan, and I was checkin around on the legacy owners website...there's a Rusty Shackleford over there. Any relation?

Nah, Rusty Shackleford was the school friend of Dale Gribble on one of favorite shows and he used that as his alt he used to elude the government.

I thought I remembered something like that about them...cool story BTW :thumbsup:

Really weird, but had an almost identical experience with Blues Traveler in Osaka, Japan in 91 while they were touring in support of "Travelers and Thieves". Hooked up with Brendan Hill (Drummer again) after the show on Saturday night (we were a couple of the only Americans in the crowd that night), and was riding motorcycles (I was racing in the dirt for Kawasaki's Southern Regional team at the time) with John Popper on Sunday. Again, great bunch of dudes and a blurry blast had by all. (A month later I was in the Persian Gulf.....surreal).

I had the pleasure of sharing a beer with Norman Blake in Glasgow a while back, very sound guy.

Hey Dag, I also had the honor of hanging with Norm and the band for a bit post show. Very, very cool people. I tried loading up a pic of it here, but couldn't for some reason.

Yeah, because when people think of the Pixies, they think of gay music. Nice try Man who had football team that loses to a Div 2 school.
