PIXIES REUNION ON THE CARDS?

Frontman Frank Black admits he dreams of a reunion - and reveals the band still get together to jam...

Pixies frontman FRANK BLACK has not ruled out the possibility of a reunion tour – and has revealed the band still get together to jam.

The indie legends officially split in 1993 after recording five albums together. They are still revered by critics and an ever-growing legion of fans – the band’s 1989 album ‘Doolittle’ was voted Number Two album of all time by NME and NME.COM’s writers in our recent Greatest Albums Of All Time poll.

Black, now a successful solo artist, admits that the idea of reforming the band is never too far from his mind, but he has reservations.

He told London radio station XFM: “I do dream about the Pixies reunion I do have to say. It’s like those schoolboy dreams when you don’t do your homework and you don’t study for the test, but I’m at the gig and we’re hanging out, but its an utter failure and I don’t know the songs, and hardly anyone turns up for the gig and people walk out. That’s what I’m afraid of, that it’d be a big, big failure.”

He added: “We might. We (bassist Kim Deal, drummer David Lovering and guitarist Joey Santiago) do get together and have private jams together, but not for public consumption.”
