I know, I know… this song was first released in 1988. And it gained more notoriety from the movie Fight Club, which didn’t come out until the tail end of the 90’s.
I’m adding this song to 90’s Monday because that’s when I discovered the Pixies and have listened to them ever since. This song is from the album Surfer Rosa, but I love all their albums. They are the band that always does it for me no matter how many times I listen to them or how music changes. They may just be my all time favorite band EVER.
During the 90’s Frank Black went solo and Kim Deal formed The Breeders. I had the pleasure of seeing Frank Black and the Catholics on one of my chemically-soddened birthday’s at some venue in downtown Orlando. Circa 2004, my dream came true when the Pixies reunited and I went to their concert somewhere in South Florida. In my brief stint as a bass player our band covered this song. I got to play Kim Deal’s part and sing the eerie “oooh-ooooooohhhh!!!”
Effing love them!
