The entirety of The Pixies classic Doolittle is coming to Harmonix Rock Band videogame. I have never played Guitar Hero or Rock Band. But I will now undoubtedly, unequivocally, positively have to buy and play Rock Band (one day when I have some cash). I wonder how playing will affect my appreciation of one of the greatest records (Surfer Rosa is equally fantastic) and bands ever? I dunno, but I wanna find out. Debaser, Gouge Away, Tame, Monkey Gone To Heaven, Wave of Mutilation...every song here is a gem. Finally I can wail and riff along with the great Joey Santiago and Black Francis on something other than a scarred tennis racket.
Here's a delicious acoustic version (el nino, you say)
And here's what it looks and sounds like on the game
