Year of Reform, Not the Manning Type

Geoff Trainor

These days all I ever seem to report about is either me being drunk, or bands reforming. Today is no exception. Well, okay, maybe that isn't 100% accurate.

The Pixies influenced a whole generation of early 90s rockers, including the late Kurt Cobain. Last year, the group reformed for some live shows and recorded a couple new songs, 'Bam Thwok' and 'Ain't That Pretty At All', a cover released on a tribute album for the late Warren Zevon.

Now, for the first time since 1991's, (14 years for those arts students out there) Trompe Le Monde, the Pixies are planning to record a new studio album. Pixies frontman, Black Francis, told the Sun,

"It's all hugs and kisses, I'm pleased to report. We have been discussing recording a new album lately. As happy as we are with the success of the reunion tour, we really want to make a record for the right reasons, whether it is successful commercially or not".

Tomorrow (July 19th) Black Francis is releasing a solo album entitled Honeycomb (under the name Frank Black), his first since 1996's The Cult of Ray.

checkout Mr Francis' "everything is blue" - not bad at at all. U-mass is where kurt stole the riff for nevermind from - although he made better use of it IMHO.
