Pixies Bring "Tenement Song" and Its Massive Chorus to Colbert

Frank Black? Still fun!

Pixies wrapped up the first leg of a world tour in support of their sixth studio album Head Carrier last night with a performance of the album's third single, "Tenement Song." Say what you like about this new(ish) Pixies—I want to see Kim Deal own a late night TV stage too—but Frank Black's besuited ambivalence is still entertaining, his voice still carries, Paz Lenchantin is a great bassist, Joey Santiago's guitar solos still sound inventive, and "Tenement Song" has a chorus that the band would have been proud of in their heyday. Watch the performance at the top of the page.
