Video: Pixies debut new songs, new bassist Kim Shattuck at surprise L.A. warm-up gig

Pixies

The Pixies have been rehearsing for their upcoming tour with new bassist Kim Shattuck of The Muffs in Los Angeles this past week, so perhaps it’s no surprise the band headed out last night for a last-minute, surprise warm-up show at the Echo — where Black Francis and Co. debuted six of their new songs, including two that have yet to be released

As you can see from the 26-song setlist posted below (via the FrankBlack.net forum), the band performed a career-spanning set, and played live for the first time new single “Bagboy” as well as three of the four songs on EP-1 (“Another Toe,” “What Goes Boom” and “Indie Cindy”), which was released this past week.

The Pixies, playing their first show in nearly two years and their first since founding bassist Kim Deal left the band, also debuted two more new songs that have yet to be released: “Greens and Blues” and “Blue Eyed Hexe,” the latter of which is the song Black Francis previewed in a Vine video last month.

The band’s tour starts Monday in Los Angeles (see full dates).

Below, check out the full setlist and video of material new and old, which we’ll post as it surfaces.

  3. The pitchfork review of the new EP was really negative. I’m still goin to check it out and give it a chance though.

    Wave of mutilation is so rad!

  4. “The pitchfork review of the new EP was really negative.”

    You’re being kind, Ken! They gave them 1-star (out of 10). The reviewer, Jayson Greene, wasn’t born when the Pixies began making music. He sounds like a snotty kid telling his Dad off. Punk review from a very unPunk site. Once again, anyone over 40–avoid Pitchfork. Not quite the same thing, but I remember when Rolling Stone gave The Cure 1-star for “Faith” and 5-stars for the Go-Go’s “Vacation” That ended my subscription.

    • This. That review was childish.

      And since we’re here watching this new lineup in action for the first time: Kim Shattuck has style. Yay Pixies!

  5. Eggy: I was being nice. I didn’t want to be negative because I do enjoy the pixies. As for pitchfork, I hear you. On the one hand, they have turned me on to some new music that I would never have know about. On the other hand, they love Kenya west. Kenya west?! If I cared about him I’d watch MTV or pick up tabloid. I admit to surfing over there when I’m bored. Best place I’ve found for new music though is XMU on satilite radio….

    Watching this, it’s clear the Pixies have taken the right approach in their very Bewitched trading of one Kim on bass for another. Brilliant stuff. Sad to see that Deal couldn’t, but if one of your eyes troubles you, slice it out.

    • In fairness, apparently it was Kim Deal’s idea to leave the band. Either way though, I don’t see why the other three should just wallow around on Skid Row in her absence. Find a new Kim, fire up the amplifiers and rock on, I say. There’s too much Pixies music waiting to be written and recorded and played.

  7. Jayson Greene wouldn’t know a good song if it came up and bit him on the ass. I wonder what he’ll do with the $100 he earned from that review? Probably round out his MGMT collection
