#tbt: Here Comes Your Man — Pixies

The Pixies, some old school American alternative rock, broke into the industry with this classic. Featured on their demo tape in 1987, this song comes replete with guitar riffs and melodic lyrics. Their music seems similar to some older British alternative (probably why they reached a higher popularity over in the UK) and they have some really catchy tunes. Though they weren’t as commercially big as they could have been, everyone should enjoy these guys.

Look at that beautiful Arriflex.

"The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry."

- Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms (via quotes-shape-us)
