Joey Santiago adds amazing and unique things to songs, and that’s on an instrument that millions of people can play, but no one can ever come up with ideas like his.

What a sober and insightful interview. The woman is taking her job seriously. The days before begging for retweets and all that, giving the band the space they deserve to reflect because, in those days, music was still taken seriously as a force that could change the world. I miss 1989.

This was David Bowie's favorite band in the latter part of his life. "Criminally underrated", he once said. They became good friends. Always referred to him as Charles or Chuck, never Frank or Black.
@seanscott7070 3 meses atrás
I imagined that Bowie referred to him as Charles, however I hoped he called him Francis , or Dear, or Dearest Francis. His cover of "Cactus" was excellent.

One of the most influential bands of all time. And they still get close to no support in getting in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It's been a trend with college radio/alt bands from the mid to late 80s. Sonic Youth, Husker Du, and The Replacements have all been on the final ballot at least once before. I'm rooting for Joy Division/New Order to get in on their first time. The world needs further proof that everything didn't start with Nirvana, or anything connected to Seattle. Or that the Early 90s wasn't really this moment of epiphany that the press and the less informed Gen-Xers with selective memories paint it out to be.
@michaelmalone7231 8 meses atrás
In reference to the Rock Hall , I'd add the Smiths, too. But getting those guys together in one single space might take an act of God. And a few restraining orders.

"Do you want to be one of those bands that people site as an influence in years to come?" - Pixes are one of the most influential bands to have existed. "...what and, drag it out to it's death or something?" - Death to the Pixies. Quite a prophetic interview. ...Joey had prothetic arms.
Joey Santiago is a guitar innovator.
Joey Santiago (nacido Joseph Alberto Santiago en Manila, Filipinas, el 10 de junio de 1965) es un cantante, compositor y músico filipino. En activo desde 1986, es conocido fundamentalmente por ser el guitarrista de la banda estadounidense de rock alternativo Pixies. Después de la ruptura de la banda en 1993, Santiago compuso bandas sonoras para televisión y documentales, además de formar The Martinis con su mujer, Linda Mallari. También contribuyó en los álbumes de Charles Douglas y Frank Black, compañero de Pixies, volviendo como guitarrista tras la reunión de la banda en 2004.

If a band said "I'm up here and they're down there," in modern interviews, that phrase would be taken out of context real hard by media outlets.
@boww548 2 anos atrás
Agreed. But it's a realistic phrase. Bands and influencers aren't required to "love" their fans. And its a hard thing for people to wrap their minds around. Their just regular people trying to make money and do what they enjoy

Charles just pulled off a subtle joke that very people would notice during the interview at 3.17 - she's asking if they have any weaknesses and Charles bends over and starts untying and tying his shoe laces - this is precisely what Salvador Dali did when he went to a meeting of the Situationists that infuriated them and got him kicked out of their group - if you look to the lyrical content of Debaser which is Dali-esque you may pick up the thread of his sense of humour here. Nice one Charles ... I gotcha.

Frank Black (Charles) is such a brilliant song writer that was born to play music. A true genius. And I love how he doesn't give your typical answer of screw religion and spirituality is hilarious. When truth is, it's not so easily dismissed.. We are humans dealing with the human experience.. that's a handful in itself.

Not yet aware they will have a huge influence on the Seattle "grunge" (f*k I hate that word) music scene, especially some album called Nevermind, with all that quiet verse >> screaming chorus >> quiet >>LOUD>> etc. Also remember this was the era of the black&white jerky-blurry-grainy-cam video in sh*tty analog 4:3 resolution.

The Pixies are almost as famous for their influence on Kurt Cobain as their own music. "What's the difference between a duck?" "One leg is both the same" Anyone know what that means?
@sixpie. 8 anos atrás
ytubeanon Am I the only one to find that Cobain's music has just nothing in the world to do with Pixies music ? I can't see any influence between those bands. And I can't see a single influence between Smells Like Teen Spirit and any Pixies song.
@TopazRocker 8 anos atrás
@sixpie Just because a band is influenced by other bands or artists doesn't mean they'll sound like them. A lot of times a band may take certain aspects of their influences' music and put it into the mix of their own style. The main influence Nirvana got from the Pixies was the big loud choruses and the quiet verses, also known as "loud quiet loud". Teen Spirit is a good example of this :)
@sixpie. 8 anos atrás
Well, Pixies don't have many songs with loud choruses and quiet verses. I never understood the whole "loud/quiet/loud" idea when it comes to the Pixies. They have maybe a bunch of songs that sounds like that, but that's definitely not their style.
@TopazRocker 8 anos atrás
Almost the whole Surfer Rosa album has the aspect of loud quiet loud. Just take another listen, you should be able to tell.
