I can't get off the fence and actually have a fucking opinion but I still feel the need to vote. No one knows why.

Well?

I've never met anyone who liked Pixies that was a bad person.

In fact I think I've liked everyone I've met that likes them.

anti-pixie sentiment is a capitalist construct circle A

I saw them when they did that joint tour with the Throwing Muses when they took turns "headlining". What a great gig, and everyone there was lovely too. So, in my experience, no Pixies fan can be a bad person.

assuming we are talking about the band, and not the fictional animal (like bears and tigers), then I agree- I have liked everyone who likes them.

My computer messed up for a bit so I didn't get to add the third option

I can't get off the fence and actually have a fucking opinion but I still feel the need to vote. No one knows why.

Could someone with special powers do that for me please you always get someone demanding the option of voting for nothing.

I'd have deleted it myself but Pixies are so fantastic that the threads were posted on immediately.

Lucky Button, I'm still kicking myself for not going to see them.

If they come back here I will.

My Dad likes the Pixies, and he's a very, very, very bad person indeed. In fact his only redeeming feature is his good taste in music.

eek Sweet suffering Christ. Your dad likes Nick Cave and The Pixies. What are his feelings on Husker Du & Big Black?

I don't recall hearing him mention them, but it's been a while.

And like The Smiths I find other bands' covers of their songs far more interesting. Far did a pretty awesome cover of Monkey Gone To Heaven for a Pixies tribute album.

See now the Pixies are crap and overrated, the Smiths are wicked and (mildly) overrated, although I feel Morrisey has lost it abit.

The Pixies and their sycophantic fans are a capitalist contruct. And the Smiths, especially Morrisey. tongue

The Smiths have a lyrical and musical quality absent in the Pixies and all their other falling side projects. The Pixies always conjure up images of music executives and scenesters falling over one another to praise them and their contribution to music, they deducted from music, not contributed to it and inspired another band almost as worse.

I'm sure he'd like it, maybe write a song or two on it.

And you'd really pick Morrisey above Chris Martin or Bono?

Plus, I have been called an 'anarchopixie'.

Seriously, what? What other band do you mean here? And how did the Pixies deduct from music?

The Pixies lowered the musical tone of the 1980s, in the fact that the excellent rockers of the previous years were now no more. Come on the Pixies didn't even have solos or the good hair (at least Morrisey had the style). You want proper bands like Yes.

The other band was Nirvana, but I have said this on another thread as well.

Nice to see you agree with me. Do you also like Yes? I will admit they were slightly better than the Smiths, but only just.

Superb. I saw the Pixies at Crystal Palace in '91. I was on acid.

I feel like throwing a cat amongst the pigeons.

The Pixies are dull and most of their fans I've met have been airhead grungers in denial. Fuck this whole alt.rock thing, bores the shite out of me. It's inspired an entire generation of boring idiots to noodle incessantly on guitars in shit bands. The only thing worse than offensive music is inoffensive music.

Me too, I watched him on Channel 4 last night and he was just about the most arrogant, irritating, self-important fuckhead I've ever seen. His solo shit is dire.

The Smiths were fucking incredible though.
