Say what you want about the Pixies cash-grab reunion tour, but when it comes to politics they seem to be placing principle above profit in the case of Israel. It was announced yesterday that the band pulled out of a Tel Aviv concert (which had already seen withdrawals from Klaxons and Gorillaz), in response to the raid last week by Israeli forces on a Turkish boat in international waters that had been seeking to break the Israeli blockade on Gaza; the raid led to the death of nine Turks.

When asked for comment, God responded, “Whatever, Man is five, and I’m seven. Suck it, Man.”
