    Top band and one I admire rather than like. I cant say I like a lot of their back catalogue. A greatest hits compilation certainly but not a lot more

    One of the rare radio-friendly tunes they knocked out

    They just improve if you ask me..I've seen them do this before but it just gets better..Slightly different but better crafted..Like anyone that gets really good at something by doing it loads...Originally amazing and full of youth..Now polished and spot on more menace to it. More experience...Sound so good live..

    Great thread Joe, it never even occurred to me to check out their newer stuff but I've been going through a lot of it and it's absolutely outstanding. Glad to have some real gems to add to the old playlist. :thumbup:

    Didn't know anything about them apart from their name, but defo worth a deeper delve.

    Got a touch of the REMs about them in that track, who I love, so it should be a good thing for me.

    If it weren't for the Piixies we'd never have had Nirvana.

    I remember hearing Teen Spirit on the radio back in the day and thinking I didn't know the Pixies had a new record out.

    Cobain was quite open about ripping off the Pixies. You can hear the influence clearly in songs like this:

    Killing Joke dropped the lawsuit after Cobain killed himself.

    ITS a strange one as the bands influenced by them I love but not a massive fan of them apart from their hits

    Yeah not entirely convinced by that though as they had plenty of time before his death, they released incesticide and in utero in that time span of what 3 years?

    Well I just looked into it and there seems to be conflicting info out there. Here's Wikipedia's take on it:



    After Nirvana released the single in 1992, members of Killing Joke claimed the main guitar riff of "Come as You Are" plagiarized the riff of "Eighties", but according to Rolling Stone magazine, they did not file a copyright infringement lawsuit because of "personal and financial reasons".[3] However, conflicting reports, such as Kerrang!, have stated differently.

    Cobain's death in 1994 effectively dissolved Nirvana and the conflict with Killing Joke.[4] If there was a lawsuit filed as Kerrang! claimed, it was either thrown out of court,[5] or it was dropped to take the burden off the remaining members of Nirvana and their management. However, the court that supposedly took the case was not named and many doubted that Killing Joke ever filed a lawsuit against Nirvana.[6]

    An interview with Killing Joke guitarist Geordie Walker that same year[7] confirmed the possibility of a said lawsuit, thus proving that the claim by Kerrang! was not a hoax. Walker stated:

    “ We were very pissed off about that, but it's obvious to everyone. We had two separate musicologists' reports saying it was. Our publisher sent their publisher a letter saying it was and they went 'Boo, never heard of ya!', but the hysterical thing about Nirvana saying they'd never heard of us was that they'd already sent us a Christmas card!

    For those who do like the Pixies you should definitely try Frank Blacks solo work. Not as consistent and less of a group sound but brilliant in places

    A fine band. Haven’t seen them live for about 15 years, but they were outstanding that night.
