Live Pixies DVD
This most influential American band—Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist Black Francis, Bassist Kim Deal, Guitarist Joey Santiago and Drummer David Lovering—had parted ways in 1994. Deal started The Breeders. Francis became solo artist Frank Black. The silence was deafening. 10 Years. But when Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain stated in interviews that all he was trying to do when writing “Smells Like Teen Spirit” was write a Pixies song, interest in the Boston-based band piqued into an obsession. Fast–forward to 2004.
Packed to the gills with 200 Pixies fanatics, this 29-song 110-minute celebration puts the viewer in the midst of the madness. In reprising their most popular material, the band, on this night, achieved the kind of magical audience chemistry that transcends mere concert excellence. As an added bonus, an early 1986 12-song set from Boston’s TT The Bear’s, never-before-released, is included.
