Here’s That New Pixies Video


This band is about to blow up. Or at least its guitarist.

Over at NPR Music they have just premiered the new Pixies video – it’s for the track “What Goes Boom.” According to NPR, it “was directed by Jonathan Furmanski and Matthew Galkin. They had some grand plans for this but in the end basically decided it was cheaper and best to just blow something up…. the two directors [explained] ‘Our original vision for the ‘What Goes Boom’ video was to create an homage to a central, dramatic scene in Star Wars. But, after that idea proved a bit too costly to produce, we decided the next best thing was to blow up Joey Santiago in the desert – the compromises we make for our art.’

Well, all right!
