Song Of The Week - The Pixies - Debaser

“Got me a movie
I want you to know
Slicing up eyeballs
I want you to know”

Debaser, a prime example of The Pixies at their post-punk melodic finest, owes more than a debt to frontman Black Francis’ fascination with Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dali’s 1929 surrealistic classic Un Chien Andalou (you know, the one where they slice the eyeball. Or do they?)

Anyway, that’s your movie connection. This is what Francis himself once said about it – “I wish Buñuel were still alive. He made this film about nothing in particular. The title itself is a nonsense. With my stupid, pseudo-scholar, naive, enthusiast, avant-garde-ish, amateurish way to watch Un chien andalou (twice), I thought: 'Yeah, I will make a song about it.' "Un chien andalou"... It sounds too French, so I will sing "un chien andalusia", it sounds good, no?'”

It sounds good – YES!

Now hit “PLAY” already. Damn!
