Following on from a discussion with Jez Claws and after finding Come On Pilgrim on cassette on my recent trip to Seattle, here’s a live clip of The Pixies playing I’ve Been Tired from 1986 (apparently in Boston). It struck us just how different and exciting they must have sounded back then. And I commiserate with Jez’s friend who turned down supporting them in Brighton around this time.
