90s Jams #51: Pixies "Velouria" (1990)

I recall Rivers Cuomo saying he chose "Velouria" as Weezer's contribution for 1999's outstanding Where Is My Mind Pixies tribute album purposely, because it was his favorite. The Pixies were never short on general 50's and early 60's inspiration, not just in the surf-rock category, but from old sci-fi fantasy movies as well, from the album cover of Bossanova right down to "Velouria's" slightly jokey and creepy (yet tasteful) theramin usage.
