Pitch-Perfect Pixies Homage

This musical style was invented by the Pixies in the mid 80s. Their early work was a main source of inspiration for Curt Cobain of Nirvana. Now Cage the Elephant have recreated the early Pixies style from its blueprints and written a song about Cobain’s birthplace in Washington state. I like it!

In other rock ‘n’ roll news, Fornvännen was just offered a review copy of a book about the Rolling Stones. The journal deals mainly with prehistoric archaeology. I guess Keith Richards has looked like Ötzi for quite some time now, come to think of it.

    Hmm, looks like an atvaism, theropod behaviour becoming re-activated!

    Don’t forget that Bill Wyman is a keen metal detectorist. You can even buy a Bill Wyman signature detector.

    Curt Cobain was also a big fan of Shonen Knife.

    This one appears to have an archaeological theme.
