Classic Video Day- Here Comes Your Man

Monday is classic video day here on Sessions, and todays pick comes from seminal college rock band Pixies. I would certainly argue that although this song isn't their best known it is probably their most accsesible (mostly because it sounds less like their usual output), definitely benefiting from the start chord which is almost exactly the same used in 'Hard Days Night'. The video itself is also a classic, at first seeming to be fairly normal (the band just playing the song) but then they chose the simple but effective technique of simply opening their mouths rather then actually miming, its brilliant really in it's very odd way.
