King's X were hit 'n miss but I always thought this leadoff track from 1989's Gretchen Goes To Nebraska was a couple years ahead of the alternative rock curve.

I can't stand the Pixies. Not after Black Francis' over-the-top fanboyism antics.

Yeah, Black Francis of the Pixies was bigger fame-wise, but D. Boon was bigger weight-wise. D. Boon never got as big as Black Francis fame-wise though Black Francis tried to get bigger than D. Boon weight-wise, but failed. Anyway D. Boon was way cooler and aint nothin' can take that away from him.

What reason do you have to compare the two?

OK

That was really random.

I saw your Dinosaur Jr. post and realized that I discovered King's X around the same time I was listening to their late 80's stuff. At the time I was going into a lot of funk metal, experimental Sonic Youth-esque stuff and real early alt-rock.

Probably none, or none I can articulate. It's not so much a comparison, as it is to prove a point. Well it basically come down to all I hear about is how everybody imitates the Pixies: Nirvana ... or whoever ... maybe every other 90s alt-Rock band ... etc etc. Well look at who's imitating who. Black Francis has literally stolen D Boon's look.


One could create an equally convincing argument that Nirvana borrowed from the Minutemen and bands from the same era just like some argue that Kurt took from the Pixies.

Did you mean to write:

Well, it's nice to see some more members adding something to this thread. Is it just happenstance or is it because Pixies are a band that generate more response? Looks like the latter to me: popular bands get overplayed or over-rated and then comes a resentful backlash....

^ Yep, plenty of superficial similarity there, Neapolitan.

^ LOL at your scenario, OH ! Perhaps we can't agree on the merits of Monkey Gone To Heaven, or of Lou Reed as a model for vocalists, so I thought I'd move on to Song #4, which we can both enthuse about:-

Song #4: Pavement - Summer Babe (1992)



^ It's obviously the guitar which makes this track, and I love everything about it: the tone, the attack and the way it's centre-stage throughout. This is a band I might play more of, hoping that Summer Babe is typical of their style. Good rec, Mo and OH

That song always felt like a sequel to this one to me

It even evokes a similar feeling (in me at least)

^ Yes, I just played those songs back to back and the one seemed to follow on pretty well from the other.

Hopping to Pavement's second album, I've just listened to this song, which weaves a bit of Buddy Holly into their distorted sound. Nice.
