Tim Wheeler - Tim Wheeler Plans 'Fun' Pixies Set

Ash singer Tim Wheeler is planning a "fun" set of Pixies songs.

The 'Girl From Mars' rocker is set to perform the covers alongside four groups for this year's JD Set concert in London, and said it didn't take him long to choose which band he wanted to pay tribute to.

She explained to BANG Showbiz: "They said to me I can work with whoever I want and can do any band or any album you like.

"I had a little think about it, but really, I guess it took about five minutes to go for The Pixies.

"With the amount of songs they have in their catalogue and how much they have influenced everyone, I thought it would be just really fun."

Tim will sing and play guitar along Emmy the Great, And So I Watch You From Afar, Ma Mentor and The Crookes at the concert and admitted his only worries for the show come from having to imitate the iconic US group's singer, Frank Black's, trademark singing style.

He added: "I'm a bit apprehensive about some of the vocals because one part of it is the incredible scream.

"I'm not doing 'Tame' which would be a full on vocal shredder, I'll do a bit of that, and the concerts will have a slightly different vibe and pace no some tracks, but it'll be ace."

Pixies are an alternative rock band from Boston, US, who recorded five albums between 1987 and 1991 before initially splitting in 1993. The group then reformed and resumed touring in 2004, but have not released any new material since.

The JD Set 2011, sponsored by Jack Daniel's whiskey, will take place at London's XOYO club on March 24.
