Pixies ‎- Wave Of Mutilation (UK Surf) (1989)


I saw the Pixies at Ally Pally on Friday night. Black Francis can still kick it, helped by a selection of classic tunes. ‘Wave Of Mutilation’ caught my ear. The original version featured on the LP Doolittle, but the band also cut a better slowed-down “UK Surf” version as a B-side to one of their bigger hits, ‘Here Comes Your Man’. ‘Wave Of Mutilation’ is the only song I know about Japanese men killing themselves by driving off piers because they’d failed in business. This was the 1980s. Have a great week.
