Old Tunes for Old Folks

How did I miss this with my cup-o-joe? The Pixies played a reunion concert at the Hammerstein Ballroom, covered by the New York Times, which had this to say:

It had been all too easy to forget about the Pixies' ugliness: how fast they played, how loud they were, how nasty they sounded.

Good memories.

In a place they say is dead
in the lake that's like an ocean
i count about a billion head
all the time
there's a motion
palace of the brine
i saw the cloning
of the famous family
i heard the droning
in the shrine
of the sea-monkey
palace of the brine
beneath reflections in the fountain
the starry sky and utah mountains
they are swimming happily
can't you see
a life that's so sublime
palace of the brine.
