Formerly known as possibly one of the best, if not at one point the best alternative rock band, on the planet. Pixies emerged out of Boston with their own unique sound fully intact. Their quiet/loud dynamics and mixture of frenzied acoustic guitar s...read more »

Pixies
Come On Pilgrim

Back in the day 'Come On Pilgrim' was the album you went to after you'd had your socks knocked off by 'Surfer Rosa' or 'Doolittle' or whichever Pixies album first took your fancy. Their debut mini LP with tracks taken almost exclusively from their demo recordings signposts a band arriving fully formed with a spiky and unusual new sound. Contains the future classics 'Vamos', 'Holiday Song' and several more wildly original gems.

Pixies
Beneath The Eyrie

Now on their third studio album since their mid-Noughties reunion eventually led to some new music, Beneath The Eyrie sees the legendary Pixies continue to polish their impressive legacy. 12 new tracks, including single ‘On Graveyard Hill’. Kim Deal or no deal? If the you've stuck with them this long I reckon I can guess.

Pixies
Doolittle

Second album from alternative rock stalwarts, Pixies. Doolittle is like when you see something disgusting, and you’re brain can’t quite decide if you want to keep looking at it and show it to everyone you know, or shut your eyes and hope it goes away. Surreal, catchy, dirty, noisy and really, really good.

Wave of Mutilation: Best of Pixies

Which is the best Pixies album? I'd say The Best of Pixies. Actually the Alan Partridge joke doesn't really apply to a band who made two brilliant works in Surfer Rosa and Doolittle, albums which cast a rather large shadow over their later work. Wave of Mutilation is a good place to start though for the uninitiated containing all the early classics alongside some obscurities and album tracks off their less-good-but-still-good 90s era albums Bossanova and Trompe le Monde. I just pity the future compiler that has to find something from their post-comeback work that will get anywhere close to living up to this.

Pixies
Come On Pilgrim... It's Surfer Rosa

Well there's no doubt that these are two of The Most Important Indie Rock Records Of All Time. Both are absolutely exceptional, in particular 'Surfer Rosa' which pretty much turned everything I knew on its head in my teenage years. 30 years after the event we get this luxury box set of both records plus a live show from the era. No new demos or whatever, but tasty and very collectable nonetheless.

Pixies
Head Carrier

Here comes the second post-reunion album from the legendary Boston outfit whose previous effort 'Indie Cindy' garnered mixed notices but was still at times a fine blast of noisy avant rock. Now having finally settled on a bassist with the Kim clone Paz Lenchantin now snugly ensconced into the line up, it's time to see whether the band really still mean business.  

Pixies
Doolittle 25

In celebration of its 25th anniversary (yes, 25th!) 4AD is releasing a deluxe version of the Pixies’ pivotal second studio album Doolittle. This three-CD/double vinyl package includes all the album’s B sides, Peel Sessions and demos alongside the original album for the first time ever, with nearly half of the tracks being commercially released for the first time. Featuring memorable tracks like "Debaser", "Here Comes Your Man" and "Monkey Gone To Heaven", this reissue is a reminder of just how important Doolittle was.

Pixies
Bossanova

This is the third proper full length attempt by Pixies, a legendary band from Boston who actually made some fucking great records back when I were a lad. Bossanova is not one of their great records. To try and follow up the triple whammy of Come On Pilgrim, Surfer Rosa and Doolittle is quite a daunting and challenging task, evident in the relatively lacklustre and plodding songs contained herein. Even 'Velouria' sounds like a pastiche of past glories. Some folks thought Trompe Le Monde was even worse! They're totally wrong. This is the only slight duffer in the original Pixies ouevre but having said all that, a lousy Pixies album is still better than most rock albums ever released so I'd still recommend you give this a shot if you're mopping up after all these years. A worthy comparison would be QOTSA's relatively feeble Lullabies To Paralyse in the quality ratio stakes.

Frank Black
Teenager of the Year

Frank Black, the yin to Jack White’s yang, released Teenage Of The Year twenty-five years ago. Bloody hell. This LP is widely regarded as one of the best things Black has ever done - and that’s including all the stuff he made with Pixies - so there’s not really too much more that we need to say to convince you of its worth. Loud, quiet, loud and so forth.
