Pixies - Doolittle (1989)

If Man is five
And the Devil is six
Than God is SEVEN.

Sun blissed backing vocals over frenzied singing
and shouting. Surf-punk tunes tumbling into
pop singalongs which burst into hardcore riffs.

Debaser, Wave of Mutilation, Monkey Gone to
Heaven, There Goes My Gun, Gouge Away - a lot
of bands would be pleased to have these songs
over a career, let alone from one album.

I missed out on the "Surfer Rosa" and "Come On
Pilgrim" albums and like a lot of people only
became aware of the Pixies when I first heard "Monkey".

I played it over and over again - not a duff song on it
and the whole thing played as a perfect set.

And yes, it was good seeing them play it all live
last year.
