Flipside Friday: "Here Comes Your Man" by The Pixies

This might get me some hate mail but the only good music to come out of the '80s, IMHO, was The Pixies led by Black Francis and former college roommate Joey Santiago. Thought to be the precursors of the Grunge style, or should I say "non-style" of the '90s, I love their toe-tappin', hip wigglin' melodies and their dark, rather tawdry lyrics (all rather tongue-in-cheek dontcha think?)
As I am always totally bagged out on Fridays I thought posting a "music video" (this one stretches modern views on music videos) NOT from the current Top 40 would be a good way to end the work week.
Hope you enjoy this quirky "video" shot by students through a fish-eye lens in order to promote The Pixies break-through hit.
Depending on who you listen to, the lyrics are about hobos riding boxcars through earthquake-prone California or dropping the H-bomb on Nagasaki. Take your pick!
