"The Pixies are masters of the calculated incongruity” "They give other rockers an object lesson in the first principles of how it should be done." – Mat Snow from his Q Magazine September 1990 review on PIXIES’ third studio album Bossanova released on 4AD! Today marks it’s 28th birthday!
We would like to hear from you ‘All Over the World’ on what your favourite tracks are from this album!
“There are many portals into The Fall’s murky musical world – 60 different band members contributed to 68 albums during their 42-year reign, which came to an end with Mark E Smith’s death in January – but this one is more negotiable, capturing as it does a period when they not only released some of their greatest albums (This Nation’s Saving Grace, The Frenz Experiment), but soared as a singles band too” The Times and The Sunday Times
What Fall fans *really* want, of course, is a deluxe Bend Sinister - and maybe even deluxe versions of the albums that were in that 5-CD set, too, so we could get the Janice Long 1987 session and the Piccadilly Radio 1988 session? Pleeeease!
