Gouge Away.
One of the best tunes this evening
Pixes were better in 1994. Have them taped
The wines are brilliant now
Probably never been better

Back to Pixies, Claus. Have seen them a few times, always good. Probably the best show I saw was when they played Doolittle from cover to cover as part of the 20th anniversary of the release of the album.

Ok, indeed
In 1989 they played this in Copenhagen:
Bone Machine
Cactus
Caribou
Crackity Jones
Dead
Debaser
Gigantic
Gouge Away
Hey
I Bleed
Isla De Encanta
Levitate Me
Mr Grieves
Monkey Gone To Heaven
Nimrod's Son
No. 13 Baby
River Euphrates
Tame
There Goes My Gun
Vamos
Wave Of Mutilation
Where Is My Mind?
Into The white

It was glorious and still is because I have it on cassette (Sony)
Along with Gun Club, Jeffrey Lee Pierce RIP...
