Pixies "Tenement Song" Weird Must See Video- Did I Just See Lou Reed, The Log Lady, and A Guy Screwing A Giant Rodent?
In the video for the Pixies song "Tenement Song" a slice of the upcoming "Head Carrier" album (due out Sept. 30) I think I saw Lou Reed ripping out his heart as well as Charles Manson and maybe even Black Francis. A guy who reminded me of Billy Corgan, a hint of the Log Lady, Twiggy maybe, maybe Bowie and a creepy guy screwing a giant gerbil. Or maybe I was just imagining it. It is all freaking nuts and super interesting and conceived by Krank! Collection (Neirin Best, Lianne Pierce and Xavier Burrow) and adds another layer to the song that comfortably sways mid tempo style as Black Francis tells his semi somber tale with a big chorus and scrunchy delicious lead and Paz's Kimchi backing vox.
