Coming together in 1986, this iconic band's early beginnings were in Boston, US, band members from then to now being frontman Black Francis, guitarist Joey Santiago, bassist Kim Deal, and drummer David Lovering. After playing local venues, they opened for Throwing Muses, which found them producer Gary Smith, who offered to record the band. The result was “The Purple Tape” which had 4AD, the UK label, signing them on the spot.
Their first album, in 1988, was released to critical acclaim, receiving a lot of radio airplay, with the end result being another record deal with Elektra Records, and one year later, released the iconic “Doolittle”. This album saw several top ten hits in the UK, catapulting the band into the public spotlight. Following a series of periods of hiatus, interspersed with successful album releases, the Pixies disbanded fully, but retained popularity throughout the 90s and 00s due to the release of re-recordings and archived material that kept interest in the band very much alive – and waiting.
Fan's patience was richly rewarded in 2004 when the band reunited, and starting in 2013, released a series of E.Ps, compiled as the album “Indie Cindy,” in April 2014. Unpredictable as ever, who knows what they'll be up to next? Only one way to find out – make sure you've got your tickets, and get ready to see the band that shaped the history of music as we know it today!!
