I think Yes are a real niche thing. People who like them really love them. Same goes for Rush

Pixies are pretty easy to "get" - just straight forward songs with some gimmicky spanish bits dressed up with some dynamics and occasional noisy guitar. I'm a fan but obviously dealing with 20 odd years of everyone thinking they invented music can grate.

Songs like Where is My Mind grated instantly. That guitar line. Those lyrics. Shoot me please.

I'm happy enough to stick with the early stuff but BIG SINGLES later on.

U-Mass is such a "how did this not exist before" kind of song.


I prefer the Breeders overall but I would.
