Pixies reunion

In April, the legendary Pixies will reunite for the first time in over a decade. The tour might also be followed by a new studio album, according to mtv.com. Will this have something to do with the fact that the solo career of Frank Black isn’t half as successful as the Pixies were?
By the way, this month BBC 6 Music is broadcasting a Pixies concert from Glasonbury ’89, as well as a frank Black session.
