Pixies "What Goes Boom" (video)
Published Nov 19, 2013Pixies guitarist Joey Santiago's riffs have always been a force to be reckoned with, but its the six-stringer himself that becomes the focus on the desert-wandering new video for the group's EP-1 track "What Goes Boom."
While Black Francis's colourful call of "are we gonna get rocky" certainly suits the mood for the scenic clip, the explosive riffs are actually what foreshadow the fate of Santiago as he makes his way through the open landscape. Fair warning: it gets a little messy.
As previously reported, Pixies — including, miraculously considering this video, Santiago — have hefty tour plans in 2014, and will stop in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver during the trip.
