OMG! Absolutely adore The Pixies Three. Western PA accents awwl ew-ver their excellent harmonies.

Great quality art photo, too.

I always wondered: are they snapping their fingers, or are they posing their hands so that maybe champagne glasses can later be airbrushed in? Like the way photo models often would pose for cigarette ads, and the coffin nail would be added in afterwards (k.d. lang marvelously kidded this in the cover art for her album "Drag").

This doesn't look like any Pixies album in my collection.

I think they were snapping fingers - one of their hallmarks. They don't look like pixies, tho, more like shield-women.

Fred's right. I don't recognize Mrs. John Murphy, let alone Black Francis.

On a different note: those ghostly males are in fact sorta cool as a graphics design element. They fit in with the overall theme as what are supposed to be the "dates," but due to their facelessness draw no attention away from the stars.

Es könnten auch kürzlich gekürte Weihnköniginnen sein aus der ländlichen Umgebung.

I think they're about to be assaulted by The Three Suns.

Auch der Eindruck,es könne sich ebenso um drei Friseuergehilfinnen aus der Vorstadt handeln,ist so absurd nicht.
