A “Gigantic” Influence

pixies - surfer rosa and come on pilgrim (back)

Wanna feel old? Take a moment and remember where you were when you first heard the Pixies and now realize that it was likely some 20+ years ago. 25 this week if you were one of those bleeding edge types who picked up Surfer Rosa upon its debut. I didn’t get gobsmacked by them until bit later, but that might have been because we didn’t have a cool radio station like the Current playing that kind of stuff. Or maybe because I had seen them open for a local CT band, a year earlier and thought they kinda sucked. Regardless I got the message eventually. Hope you did as well.
