HERE COMES YOUR MAN

Pixies at Glasgow Barrowlands some six weeks ago was a real highlight in terms of live performances in 2016. Ok, there was no Kim Deal and I’d be lying if I said things were just the same without her, but Paz Lenchantin is a very capable replacement on bass and occasional vocals and to be fair, she’d never dream of taking a turn on Gigantic.

But she did play her part in a great rendition of another of Kim’s lead vocals, one that was originally released as the b-side to one of their best known singles:-

mp3 : Pixies – Here Comes Your Man
mp3 : Pixies – Into The White

The 12″ release, which incidentally is easier to track down than the 7″, had two additional tracks:-

mp3 : Pixies – Wave Of Mutlilation (UK Surf)
mp3 : Pixies – Bailey’s Walk

The former, a new version of a track from the then parent LP Doolittle, was recorded at the Palladium Studios in Edinburgh, a favourite of 4AD boss, Ivo Watts-Russell.  It was where he did much of his work with This Mortal Coil.

Enjoy.

  1. No throwaways here. Have always loved that slower version of Wave of Mutilation, but tough to knock the album version too. Really just a perfect single.
