that's really the Pixies m.o., you first get into them and they're amazing. catchy pop tunes that are just slightly bent in some fucked up way (Black's shrill screams, Santiago's desperate guitar style, et all)

and then they become old hat. rather quickly compared to some other bands. still great, but that mystery is gone

how much did you hear about them before listening to them, I've known several people that never got into the Pixies because the buzz was too much

Another shitty singer is the guy from Leatherface, hes awful. But it does suit their 'fuck you' style i suppose.

you should hear his side project band jessie, his singing in that band is great. even in leatherface his voice is awesome I reckon - really emotional.

Cool, i'll check that side project out. Don't get me wrong, i do like Leatherface, it's just on some tracks his vocal's can come across a bit too rough for my liking, but as you said it does contribute to the emotional intensity.

While you're at it check out his band pope, they released one of my favourite records ever, it's out of print, but I think they rereleased it on CD, if you get the chance buy it! I do see what you mean about his vocals, but I like it rough!

I have heard of 'pope' before, but never got round to listening to them. I'll check them out for sure now. cheers.

i only listen to the pixies once a year and that's enough to hear how awesome they are.

but they are definitely a pop band.

and shitty singers? mark arm, for sure. dude had awesome attitude and he could carry himself on some tunes but overall all...it also might not help that everyone started copying his half assed voice.
