FIND RURAL ROADSIDE PROSTITUTION IN “UM CHAGGA LAGGA” VIDEO
Video Marks Band’s Black Francis’ Directorial Debut
(Thursday, October 6, 2016) – Written, storyboarded, produced and directed by Pixies frontman Black Francis, “Um Chagga Lagga,” the new music video for the band’s album Head Carrier (out now /Pixiesmusic/Play It Again Sam), makes its premiere today.  True to the song’s esoteric storyline, the part concept, part performance video is infused with a rousing, old-school Pixies urgency.  You can view the video here.
Working with French filmmaker Louis Collins, Black Francis chose Toulouse, France as the video’s location, incorporating its scenic countrysides.
With eight UK dates that sold out in mere minutes, Pixies are set to launch their UK/European tour on November 15 in Vienna, Austria.  Complete dates are below.
