Even if the band never sold a record, to have David Bowie as a fan would be enough for me to die fulfilled and happy.
The chicken show w// hyd it Just shows that real talent doesnt matter in show. Skill is only interesting for 2 or 3 albums all of them stick to me personally but what for alot of people matter is the image, for them to put on the "artist" clothes on and also because that way they can be part of a group and feel all safe together :/ its a mad world
Right! No higher praise.

this dynamics of Pixies songs that Bowie talks about, this transition from extremely quiet to erupting into a blaze of noise was copied by Nirvana and became a hallmark of the 90s american bands.

Everyone who bought a Pixies album or a Velvet Underground album started a band, except for me.  I listen to both of these bands and haven't started a band yet, much to my chagrin.  Anyone up for starting a band?
