Everyone is going mad about the Pixies reforming, but I don't really see what all the fuss is about. I mean they are a good band and stuff, but they have kind of become the sacred cows of indie music - a bit like the Beatles. Now call me iconoclastic, but I don't really like the Beatles either. I mean they are alright to listen to over sunday dinner with your parents or something, but just not my cup of tea.
Frank Black is about 35 stone now and I think they only way they are going to rock the foundations of music in 2004 is if the esteemed Mr Black goes on the rampage after running out of pies.
Talking of pies, the one band that I would like to see this summer are The Cure...
