Our words of wisdom from the last 500 issues.

Small wonders

‘Bands like Pixies are the flipside of the Bruce Springsteen coin. Without believing blindly in the power of rock'n'roll you can't make magic work. whether you're playing on Brucie's scale or scrabbling a living with some weird shit of No Commerical Potential. Pixies' magic doesn’t work all the time. but when it does. Surfer Rosa is as entertaining a piece of avant-garage as y0u‘ll find this side of the new Pere Ubu LP.‘
