Black: 'Brit Bands Are The Coolest'

Subscribe to The Pixies alerts

Pixies frontman Frank Black insists British rock bands are far cooler than "nerdy" US stars.

The DEBASER rocker finds the difference between American groups and their trans-Atlantic counterparts highly amusing, as British stars continue their rock 'n' roll persona long after they have left the stage.

He observes, "You can always tell which bands in the lobby of the hotel are English bands because they still have their outfits on.

"Or they still have their persona and their sunglasses and they're like, 'I'm in a baaaaaand and we're like thiiiis,' whereas American bands are a more nerdy - they're like, 'Where's the breakfast buffet?'

"English bands are lying on the couch hungover, like they're in the middle of a photoshoot."
