Track Of The Day: Pixies - 'What Goes Boom'

One Tuesday a few weeks ago, the world woke up to a brand new Pixies EP. The four songs were produced by Gil Norton and Dan Austin, the latter doing a fine job on Six By Seven’s new album. Austin is another musical figure who grew up in my hometown of Melksham, and his father is the same Mr Austin who sometimes features in the “Rewind” section of my weekly RW/FF With Ben P Scott column. In another bit of “what a small world” information, the bass on these new tracks comes courtesy of ex-Fall member Simon ‘Ding’ Archer, a top bloke who I met a few months ago when his band Bobbie Peru supported Mark E Smith and co at a Bristol gig. Of all the tracks on the new EP, this belter is the one that is most reminiscent of their earlier works…

The Pixies play the Roundhouse in London on September 25th as part of the iTunes Festival and the full show streams live starting at 4pm ET. For more info visit the festival's website HERE
