Man oh man!

If its true then Id give an arm and a leg to see them live again! If they wont tour but release a new album, Im all for that and wont blame them if they go in that direction....cos of the probable big media attention a tour would attract and the band might not want that.

But if they undertake a tour, it'll be brilliant but the demand for tickets will be incredibly high..... probably as high as U2's gigs were in 2001, I reckon! That might pose problems as Im sure Pixies will want to avoid big arenas and play small intimate venues like Astoria in London or Irving Plaza in New York instead. I cant see Pixies playing big wouldnt feel right, you know.

Anyway I have seen The Pixies live 4 times (all in London) and man, they were AWESOME! If it wasnt for U2, The Pixies would have been the best gigs of my life!

Heres hoping that they will come back together *fingers crossed*

thanks to

Wow..what a day.. A huge media explosion on a single rumor of the Pixies reforming.

Thanks to the countless (okay, 529) Pixies fans who emailed me these stories. (Apologies to the others who received bounced messages. I really want to see your article!! Like really!)

Being a tasty flan with connections, i contacted my afore-mentioned close and reliable source for the Official Word, and here's what i was sent on the compelling Rumor 398b:

As you may know, 20th century physicists studying sub-atomic particles discovered that, in determining a particle's position, they could not, simultaneously, determine the particle's direction and velocity. On the other hand, in determining the direction and velocity of a particle, they were also precluded from simultaneously determining the particle's position.
Such is the case with the Pixies; I may know where they are at a particular moment, but I have no idea where they're going. On the other hand, I may know where they're going, but have no idea where they are.

There you have it. However, the plot thickens on where Ken Goes, FB's and the Pixies' manager tells us there's been a request for the Pixies to play! But...also...that there are many such requests each year.

So what doya think? Is there gonna be tour and new Pixies album? The FB community is doing a great job getting to the bottom of this here.

“Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.”
