Play That One Chord

Dance and electronic music is undoubtedly the music of the moment, and the sleek, polished, bass thumping production can definitely shake a room full of bodies to move their hips. Culturally, that has to be worth big points. But if you need a break from all the beats and synth; if you're hoping that someone will remember where they put their distortion pedal, can I humbly suggest you dig into the history crates and get yourself some Doolittle?

If there's one thing that 90s rock music does well, it's the loud, fuzzy guitar riff. Thanks again to Cobain for that one. "Debaser" kicks off Doolittle with one of the best of these riffs, the kind that you could imagine Pavement listening to and writing an entire album trying to out-fuzz the Pixies with. And then they top it with "Wave of Mutilation," a bar-raising feat that perhaps only Rage Against the Machine contested with "Bulls on Parade" as track two on Evil Empire.

But the Pixies and Doolittle aren't just for guitar lovers. They're too much fun to shout along with and pump your fist to and try to figure out what they're saying and whether singer Black Francis really "walked the sand with the crustaceans". Fuzz out, Pixies.
