Today I received the new Pixies EP. Classic vinyl release artwork and high production values. Takes me back to Doolittle. Today I also discovered Pressgram, a social photo sharing and filter app that links and posts directly to WP blogs. This one thumb post might not last the evening. I gather the #GoPressGram is appropriate.

Late running addition. Here’s the video for Indy Cindy. A very Pixie like song..
And the one before, this is Bagboy….
….and whilst hanging around in YouTube land I found this. I’m pretty sure this is one of the gigs I went to.

This post feels like a slight lurching between pride and embarrassment. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while and as I’ve trying to create some wardrobe space over the last week or so today seemed like a good time. Going back 20 years I was very non-brand. I had a pronounced aversion to wearing labels and offering anything overtly personality based in my attire. Previously I had chosen brand new -second hand, ex-army or more often than not…. black. I don’t know what switch was flipped but one day I bought a t-shirt from a gig and all of sudden I’m here. When I counted them today there were nearly 40. Theres a good chance one or two are being washed, plus a few older ones squirrelled away around and about. Terrible…
Amongst these jewels are a few Last Exit from Nowhere specials, a couple of Boss specials, some Marvel acknowledgements, two recent self made designs and lots of great gig memories.
The oldest is easily the No More Censorship / Dead Kennedys edition, the most recent the Pixies Ltd Edition.
I really should curtail this extravagance but it’s not likely. And no, I didn’t iron any of them first. There’s something self proclaiming about wearing message ‘t’s’. “Hey, look what I’ve seen”, “I’m into this so yeah!”. It’s a bit like street blogging.
