The Pixies Perform a Hypnotic Version of “Gouge Away” at the BBC

In 2018, the Pix­ies per­formed live for BBC Radio 6 Music, play­ing some new songs (“In the Arms of Mrs. Mark of Cain”) and old clas­sics (“Here Comes Your Man”). In that lat­ter cat­e­go­ry, you’ll find a record­ing of “Gouge Away,” which I keep com­ing back to again, and yet again. About the video, one YouTu­ber had this to say: “This pro­duc­tion is just badass. The bass, the drums, every­thing. This spe­cif­ic record­ing is a mas­ter­piece. To see it taped is a rev­e­la­tion.” That kind of sums it up. Time to share it with you…
