    Episode 41: Pixies (Part 2)

    Got me a ranking, I want you to know! Slicing up albums, I want you to know! Chris and Ollie take on Pixies’ Beneath The Eyrie, Surfer Rosa and Doolittle in this part, no mean feat! We also do our The Nicher The Better Top 5 songs one could have seen at Reading 2005, which is the first time the chaps saw Pixies and Chris’ first festival!



    We are on Twitter as a podcast @BBTS_pod, let us know how off (de)base we are with our Pixies ranking, or your thoughts on our next act, as we join forces with our childhood friend and the Foxes Never Quit Talking Leicester City podcast, Arkady English, to take on Californian pop-punkers Blink-182! To hear Ollie’s mind slowly unravel next time around, subscribe on your favourite podcatcher, and whilst you’re there, a 5* review and a recommendation to a pal would be lovely 😘 see you then!
