The Pixies's Joey Santiago

One of the great guitarists of the Nineties (and in my opinion; of all time) was The Pixies's Joey Santiago. His tone and approach was always fresh and inventive. Joey supplied as unique a voice to The Pixies's sound as did Black Francis/Francis Black and was integral in making their band one of the most influential bands of their time, and even now, the sound and attitude they infused into the music scene with ground shaking albums like Surfer Rosa in the 1990's is still resounding through many of artist's sounds today.
The Pixies reunited last and year, and have been touring, and now they've announced a new album! The last Pixies's albun was 91's Trompe Le Monde; i for one, am waiting for this one.
