The Pixies go to Gotham

June 09, 2009 | 10:35 p.m.

Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight” will make its cable premiere on HBO this Saturday and here’s a nice new trailer that blends the grim action with a classic, the 1988 Pixies track “Where is My Mind?” Is there anything cooler than the Pixies? I can’t think of many. I got to watch their searing reunion at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival a few years ago and also interviewed Frank Black once, and both experiences only intensified my admiration of the band.

If for some reason you don’t know their music that well, get yourself a copy of “Doolittle” (my fave of their albums) as quickly as possible. If you don’t like it, I don’t trust you. Anyway, enjoy the trailer…

    Just don't expect to find "Where is My Mind?" on Doolittle (which is their definitive album); the song was originally on Surfer Rosa and is on most of their hits compilations.
