And who's really begging for a new Pixies album at this stage?
Still, I wouldn't say no.....
...then I guess it's settled. But really, who cares? The only positive thing about a new Pixies album is that it'll stop them from doing that awful heritage tour thing where they trundle around the countryside playing Doolittle from start to finish (why do bands degrade themselves this way?)
It's a shame this won't actually happen.
Or, if it does happen, I might end up wishing it hadn't after all.
Think I'd prefer another new Breeders album tbh
on being OLD.
I'm interested to see what will come out of this. It could be utter shite and it would properly cheapen all those songs that were ever-present in my teens... Or it could be fantastic and give them a reason to come back to Dublin so I can see them! I think it depends on Kim rather than Frank by pure speculation. She has the Breeders, her sister, her non-alcoholic beers. Frank has a porn album.
they've said this many times, with no result, so people aren't going to be that excited about it being said yet again.
Yeah, I agree with you though. Not a huge fan of either Breeders (haven't given them the time they deserve tbf) and Frank's out put has been radically hit-and-miss. I'm hoping that if they do go into the studio and start writing that the quality levels will shoot back up to the Pixies standard, as opposed to "Frank black and the Pixies".
5 great albums. Just leave it at that.
Thought this lesson could be learned from the Smashing Pumpkins?
I don't think they have the capacity to completely fuck themselves over just like Billy did with SP.
though the fact that they've aborted so many attempts by now makes me think they've got the quality control meter set pretty high.
Then again, Bam Thwok...
...Wouldn't have been considered that bad if it had another 12 or 13 tracks to go with it, I reckon
If it was tucked away near the back of an album as another La La Love You, or even just on the Shrek soundtrack as intended, but to release it as a single...

Not suggesting they're as wreckless as Corgan. You're totally right in what you'er saying about the quality control as they've held back this long.
I guess I just meant that Come On Pilgrim through to Trompe Le Monde is a perfect body of work and if they brought out new material and it was shite, I'd be really, really disappointed.
Corgan is so egotistical that he can't see the stuff he puts out now is so bad. As far as I'm concerned, Smashing Pumpkins finished at Machina II, Zeitgeist and everything after that I try to think of as just Billy Corgan being a wank so I don't hate what was one of my favourite bands.
I remember being really excited about this, and then forgetting to listen to it properly.
Now I can't even remember what they called themselves.
Come to think of it, did this even happen or did i dream it?
if they just did it and BAM, announced that in six weeks, a new Pixies album would be out, people would probably be interested/excited.
instead, every year, it's "oh yeah, we're DEFINITELY going to do it after this tour wraps up"
However I'd be first in the que if the Pixies released a new album.
Either they release another great album and it's great, or they release a shit one and you don't listen. I would like the chance of a great album, please.
