A 21st Century one man band does Pixies

I don’t think one man can replace the Pixies – but this punter’s made a pretty good fist of it. Where Is My Mind? is a great song anyway and this guy does something amazing with it: a masterclass in human beatbox looping. Sorry if I got the jargon wrong, kids.

When I was a kid, people like him were red in the face, had a drum on their back, a harmonica in one of those frame things and a weather-beaten accordion and they stood outside the newsagent’s on Portstewart’s main street. But then when I was kid, the Pixies were recording the original of this track. Ah, they don’t write songs like this any more …
