Joey Santiago - bonus Catholic on guitar!
Once a Pixie, Joey Santiago has most recently appeared with his
buddy Black Francis on the Frank Black and the Catholics releases "Devil's
Workshop" and "Dog and the Sand". A welcome return for
fans, his work is always much appreciated. He has also appeared on "Frank
Black" (self-titled), and "Teenager of the Year".
As taken from the website www.themartinis.com
here is a bit of life info on Joey:
He was born in Manila, Philippines and
when 7 moved with his family to Yonkers, NY.
He ended up spending most of his time growing
up in Massachusetts, where he went to U-Mass
Amherst. Of course this is where he met Charles
Thompson, and later dropped out and formed
the Pixies with Charles "somewhere in
Boston", as the story is told. The rest
of course is brilliant musical history.
Joey is currently involved with his band
The Martinis, which includes his wife Linda
Mallari. In addition to this work, he also
composes music for film and television. His
work is featured on FOX's "Undeclared".
Other work has been featured in the movie
"Crime and Punishment In Suburbia",
and also on its soundtrack.
