Ever found yourself thinking, “Hmmm, I wonder what the hell Black Francis meant in, oh, every single Pixies song…”? You’re not alone. And lucky for you, in this interview with Minnesota Public Radio’s Mary Lucia, he takes the time to explain some of his songwriting ideas, concepts and inspirations. And by that, we mean he talks a lot about hangovers and lemurs, but it’s still totally awesome. Additionally, the interview is peppered with acoustic versions of Pixies songs, including this lovely rendition of ‘Velouria,’ featured above.
