LAST FEW BITS OF BLACK FRIDAY LIMITED VINYL STILL AVAILABLE!

Come On Pilgrim by Pixies

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.

9/10 Tom 22nd May 2018

Very few bands have come out of the gate on their first release with such a unique and fully realised sound as the Pixies did on Come On Pilgrim, their debut mini-album released by 4AD in 1987. Comprised of the best of the demos that made up their infamous 'Purple Tape' which they used to shop for record labels and gigs, Come On Pilgrim finds the Pixies at their most deranged and unhinged. Frank Black (or Black Francis as he known back then) is a surreal lyricist at the best of times, and these songs contain some of the most unusual insights into his unique mind, dealing with some of his favourite topics - religion, incest, deformity. All the elements that made their debut-proper Surfer Rosa and it's sublime follow-up Doolittle such classics are evident here: David Lovering's heavy drums, Kim Deal's laconic basslines, Joey Santiago's infectious bending leads, and Black Francis' overall feral presence. Highly recommended!
