I think it was in a film class in the mid-1980s at Fresno State that I first saw Luis Buñuel & Salvador Dali’s experimental short film, Un Chien Andalou. And while I was suitably and properly grossed out by the eyeball-slicing scene, it never even struck me to write a song about the whole experience.
Not so Black Francis, who wrote the rip-roaring opener of the Pixies 1989 Doolittle LP, “Debaser,” around it.
