- Gravitational rock
2016 had its share of bad surprises. In the pantheon of the gods of rock, certain goodbyes were hard to bear. But don’t let it get you down, disappointed earthling. Pixies will put your centre of gravity back where it should be. For generations, this group formed in Boston in 1986, has made the Milky Way resonate to the sound of their punk rock music with its waves of surf sounds. Their hit Where is my mind ? still echoes like a hymn that even influenced Kurt Cobain in the formation of Nirvana. Accompanied by Paz Lenchantin - the new bass player - Pixies bring renewed comfort with Head Carrier and promise us that, yes, it’s still ok to be an earthling in 2017.
