Who are Pixies?
The Pixies are an american rock band that first formed in 1986 in Boston.
Until 2013, the original line-up was composed of Black Francis (vocals, rhythm guitar), Joey Santiago (lead guitar), Kim Deal (bass, backing vocals) and David Lovering (drums).
Kim Deal left the band in 2013, and was replaced by Kim Shattuck who left later that year. The band eventually brought in Paz Lenchantin who became a permanent member in 2016.
The band released EP’s, and singles before releasing their first full-length album Surfer Rosa in 1988.
The album was completed within two weeks and released to huge acclaim in Europe. The album was eventually certified Gold in the U.S. in 2005 after a positive but quieter response when it originally released.
The band went on hiatus after the release of their second album before returning in 1990 with Bossanova, which reached No.3 in the UK.
Pixies then disbanded in 1993, but reunited again in 2004, and going on to enjoy several sold-out world tours.
The Pixies played their first reunion concert on April 13, 2004, at the Fine Line Music Cafe in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The band has garnered many top 10 hits throughout their career such as Monkey Gone to Heaven and Here Comes Your Man.
Throughout their career the band has released seven studio albums, 17 live albums, one mini LP and three EP’s which has spawned 12 singles.
