So you like the Pixies? I would have guessed, cause they aint nothing to write home about. Over-rated post-College Rock, or proto-Alt Rock or whatever you want to call them.

Nirvana really exploited The Pixies "soft verse - heavy chorus" thing, especially on the song that blew the ****ing roof off for them, Smells Like Teen Spirit.

Jimmy was creating Led Zeppelin during his last year with The Yardbirds. He already owned it.

BIG difference.

Whatever.

Back up your hot air balloon for just a minute. Nirvana had more bands that were influential to them than just the Pixies. And I was forced to use Yardbirds/Led Zeppelin analogy with you cause any other band name reference would go over you head like the Goodyear blimp.

Jebus. Not sure why I get this sort of vitriol around here. I'm older, not ****ing stupid. Back the **** off.

I think Rosa and Pilgrim are post punk albums and Doolittle is more "alt rock"

I see a lot of similarities with Doolittle and Surfer Rosa though. Could they really be different genres?

I wish people would shut up about the Zeppelin/Yardbirds thing. If your not here to talk Pixies, take it to another thread.

The Pixies are so hyped, they are so many other bands worth talking about, long story short Bob Mould is a million times better, and I was only talking to Signor Chula about the only band that matters to him, or that he knows, hence the Yardbirds/Led Zeppelin analogy.
