Brilliant...this is the first ever Pixies song i ever heard and it blew me away. There's no wonder why stars such as Bono and Bowie highly rate these alternative rockers. The song itself (mokey gone to heaven) is amazing, with Charles Thompson (Frank Black) almost whispering the verses then alternatively screaming his lungs out during the choruses. There's no wonder Kurt Cobain later used this technique when writing Smells like teen spirit. With influences such as husker du, it's not suprising that the Pixies are a great indie/rock band and in my opinion probably one of the best bands ever.
