if I said to you...

queens of the stone age - go with the flow
the hives - hate to say i told you so
white stripes - seven nation army

even the donnas - take it off

and for a break morcheeba - blindfold

what would be 5, 6 or 7 other songs that you would recomend that would "fit" into the same approximately music climate?

Danger (High Voltage) - Electric 6
Used For Glue - Rival Schools

I have the feeling the Pixies are worth getting a CD by BTW. I recall some other songs of theirs I really like.

Lazarus and the Gimp

Get "Surfer Rosa" or "Doolittle".

Trompe Le Monde is their best! Criminally underrated.

They have a good double live album out too, as well as a recent "unreleased" songs CD.
For that matter, you may want to invest in Frank Black (and the Catholics) or The Breeders, both former fronters of the band.

That's the kind of help you really want!

Just get the best of (2cd version if you can still find it).

If you like that then get all the others (they're all great).

24-04-2003, 12:02:48
Your advice is EXACTLY the same as one I JUST received :lol:

I hope I'll be able to find the best of for starters.

Hmm, doesn't look like the 2CD version is still available (the second CD was a really good live show). The normal version is available here. (http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000024U4J/qid=1051186113/sr=1-3/ref=sr_1_3_3/026-6145292-6242864)

Thanks but it's ok; if even greekbooks (http://www.greekbooks.gr/cd/showCd.asp?ItemCode=064770) has it the record stores are bound to be filled with it.

The Pixies are quite well known and loved here, but for some reason I never got around to listening to them.

That is too sad...they are one of the best bands ever. Now you'll never get to see them live.
Aside from Toots Hibbert and Jimmy Cliff, best damn live act ever.

Perhaps. There's one catch with indie bands for me. Some of their songs are real gems unparraleled, one time wonders and other kind of bands are totally incapable of ever conceiving songs like these. Yet some other of the songs indie bands write can be incredibly... indifferent making even a hard rock piece seem more interesting.

It's kind of a gamble as far as I am concerned.
Also yes in times like these when a band has completed its cyrcle of existance it is like opening up a dusty treasure-case... but that's all you can do :)

I can't remember a recent case where I discovered a band and followed its course as it evolved, album after album concert after concert and see it grow up before my eyes and ears! and not be dissapointed... except for Iron maiden when I was 14 but that don't count :)
