Unquestionably the reunion story of the year--unless Siegfried & Roy pull one out before Christmas--the return of the Pixies will, if we're lucky, convince Black Francis, Kim Deal, Joey Santiago and David Lovering to put their heads together and write new songs that don't suck, picking up where the sorely underrated Trompe le Monde left off, or picking up from somewhere that's as weird as the first place they picked up from (and I don't mean Boston). If we're not so lucky, the band's reformation will inspire Paw to give it a go again next summer. Either way, here comes your band.
