"In the sleepy west of the woody east..."

Charles Thompson (before he was Pixies singer/screamer/songwriter Black Francis/Frank Black) and Joey Santiago were suitemates at the University of Massachusetts in the early '80s. Thompson dropped out after the first semester of his junior year and went Puerto Rico, and when he returned to the U.S. several months later, he and Santiago moved to Boston. J Mascis from Dinosaur Jr. also was going to school at UMass at the time. He and Thompson met at some point, but it's only significant in retrospect when you imagine these two meeting, since they didn't necessarily hit it off.
