    They went downhill after Chuck Moseley left. I never really gelled with Mike Patton.

    ... but IMHO the first Pixies album is Come On Pilgrim: the fact that it was rereleased on the same CD as Surfer Rosa doesn’t make it any less their first (short) album.
    Good choice though — I’d be happy to say the Come On Pilgrim is a great first and Surfer Rosa an even better second album.

    Two modern British prog-ish bands for your consideration:
    Muse — Showbiz followed by Origin Of Symmetry. Yes, they start to become grandiose already — but it’s a few more albums before they go too far and start churning out “Muse by numbers” trash. At this stage they still had the skill, cheek and competence to get away with it.

    The Cooper Temple Clause — See This Through And Leave is one of the greatest ever debut albums, while Kick Up The Fire And Let The Flames Break Loose is jaw-droppingly incredible. I mean it. 10 awesome songs. Go listen!!
    Sadly they only managed one more album, the weaker Make This Your Own, and then broke up.

    BTW the first time I ever heard of The Cooper Temple Clause was when I saw them supporting Muse at the Barrowlands in Glasgow in 2001 (touring just before Origin Of Symmetry was released).

    You know, everyone always raves about the later releases with the Mk II lineup, but I think the first two are my favorites. But I guess my tastes always did differ from most folks'.

    Fantastic track! I love all his albums up to and including Bop Til You Drop, but the first ones are pure magic.

    Be-Bop Deluxe - good debut followed by the amazing 'Futurama', very nicely produced by the great Roy Thomas Baker.

    The Stray Cats seemed to appear from nowhere in London and no one had heard anything like their first album and everyone went crazy over it. When they recorded to follow up they had no intention of resting on their laurels and repeating the formula so it had more of an R&B, pre Rock 'n' Roll feel and it was superb. But then everyone wanted another Stray Cats rockabilly record so it was dismissed and hardly did anything. It wasn't released in America and unavailable here for years and rarely gets thd credit it deserves.

    That first record wasn't too easy to find in the States, either. The copy I had was an import from New Zealand, of all places.

    That Chicago documentary that is streaming on Netflix is good. Gave me a perspective on the band that I definitely lacked when all I knew was that 25 or 6 to 4 rips off the While My Guitar Gently Weeps chord progression.

    Edit: “rips off” is too strong. “Apes” is the right word.

    Also with Thin Lizzy, their first album they called just Thin Lizzy, then their second Shades of a Blue Orphanage, and then a great third with Vagabonds of the Western World.
