Pixies — Discography 1987-2014 [FLAC]

Indie icons who influenced countless artists by welding superior pop influences and indented, roaring guitars to Disgraceful Francis' fragmented songwriting.

Combining indented, roaring guitars and a halt-start dynamics with melodic pop hooks, intertwining spear-female harmonies, and evocative, hidden lyrics, the Pixies were one of the most controlling American option finished bands of the belated «80s. They weren»t consummate musicians -- Disgraceful Francis wailed and bashed out chords while Joey Santiago«s principal guitar squealed out spirals of hubbub. But the bandmembers were inventive, wild finished fans who turned conventions in prison out, melding poor and indie guitar finished, superior pop, surf finished, and coliseum-sized riffs with singer/guitarist Disgraceful Francis» grotesque, fragmented lyrics about span, belief, sex, mutilation, and pop culture; while the intention of his lyrics may have been impenetrable, the music was point and forceful.

The Pixies« bustling, brief songs, outermost dynamics, and overthrow of pop kerfuffle b evasion structures proved one of the touchstones of »90s option finished. From grunge to Brit-pop, the Pixies« follow loomed portly -- it»s zealous to create Nirvana without the Pixies« signature a halt-start dynamics and lurching, loud guitar solos. While the Pixies were touted as the league together to diminish indie finished into the mainstream, they plainly laid the base for the option burst of the originally »90s. MTV was careful depend on to extemporize their videos, while even current finished air didn«t put their singles into cyclical rotation. Furthermore, tensions between kingpin Disgraceful Francis and bassist/vocalist Kim Give Out, who wanted to combine her songs into the band»s repertoire, disabled the band's ongoing. By the dated Nirvana dead the doors down for option finished in 1992, the Pixies were effectively kaput up.

The Pixies were formed in Boston, Massachusetts in 1986 by Charles Thompson and his roommate Joey Santiago. Born in Massachusetts and constantly shuttling between there and California, Thompson began playing music as a kid before he moved to the East Sea-Coast for clever during exalted style. Following graduation, he became an anthropology noteworthy at the University of Massachusetts. Halfway through his studies at the college, he went to Puerto Rico to investigate Spanish, and after six months he resolute to make haste stand behind to the U.S. to method a league together. Thompson dropped out of style and moved to Boston, managing to urge Santiago to coincide with him. Advertising in a music manuscript for a bassist who liked «Hüsker Dü and Peter, Paul and Mary,» the duo recruited Kim Give Out (who was billed as Mrs. John Murphey on the group's first two records), who had in days of old played with her match sister Kelly in the general public-finished garage league together the Breeders in her hometown of Dayton, Ohio. On the suggestion of Give Out, the guild recruited drummer David Lovering. Inspired by Iggy Pop, Thompson picked the position name Disgraceful Francis and the guild named itself the Pixies after Santiago randomly flipped through the dictionary.

By the in, the Pixies had played enough gigs to debark a supporting fissure for concomitant Boston league together Throwing Muses. At the Muses concert, Gary Smith, an artist overseer and processor at Boston«s Fort Apache studios, heard the guild and offered to curriculum vitae them. In Walk 1987, the Pixies recorded 18 songs over the course of three days. The demo, dubbed The Purple Cassette, was given to key players within the Boston tuneful community and the supranational option spot, including Ivo Watts, the top a intercept of England»s 4AD Records. Impressed with the cassette, Watts signed the league together and released eight of the demo's songs as the EP Come on Medieval History Palmer in 1987.

The Pixies convened to curriculum vitae their first quite-in recount album, Surfer Rosa, with processor Steve Albini, who had pioneered the scarce, abrasive indie guitar abrade with Big Disgraceful. Albini gave the league together a harder-edged, abrasive guitar common-sense, yet the guild retained its melodic hooks. Released in the derive from of 1988, Surfer Rosa earned vigorous reviews from the British weekly music pack and became a college air hit in America; in the U.K., the album made inroads on the pop charts. By the end of the year, the ring for on the Pixies had become consequential, and the guild signed to Elektra Records. At the end of 1988, they re-entered the studio, this dated with British processor Gil Norton. Released in the derive from of 1989, Doolittle boasted a cleaner common-sense and received save reviews, which led to greater uncovering in America. «Monkey Gone to Heaven» and «Here Comes Your Man» became Top Ten current finished hits, clearing the way for Doolittle to climax at bevy 98 on the U.S. charts; in the U.K., it entered the charts at bevy eight. Throughout their profession, the Pixies were more common in Britain and Europe than America, as evidenced by the sensation of the Sex and Eradication journey. The league together became legendary for Disgraceful Francis« motionless performances, which were counteraction by Deal»s charmingly abandoned message of humor. The journey itself became rotten for the band's in-jokes, such as playing their intact set catalogue raisonn in alphabetical arrange. By the close of their second American journey for Doolittle at the end of 1989, the bandmembers had begun to weary of each other and resolute to take a hiatus during the start of 1990.

During the hiatus, Disgraceful Francis went on a brief unaccompanied journey and Kim Give Out formed a guild with Tanya Donelly from the Throwing Muses and bassist Josephine Wiggs of Diminish To Perfection D, naming it after her teenage league together, the Breeders. The Breeders recorded the Albini-produced Pod, which appeared on 4AD in originally summer 1990, rudely after the Pixies reconvened to curriculum vitae their third album with Gil Norton. More atmospheric than its predecessors, and relying heavily on Francis« surf finished id, Bossanova was released in the in of 1990; to Surfer Rosa or Doolittle, it contained no songs by Give Out. Bossanova was greeted with decidedly tainted reviews, but the curriculum vitae became a college hit, generating the current finished hits «Velouria» and «Dig for Fire» in the U.S. In Europe, the curriculum vitae expanded the group»s trend, hitting bevy three on the U.K. album charts and paving the way for their headlining display at the Reading Red-Letter Day. Though the supporting tours for Bossanova were pre-eminent, tenseness continued to become accepted by between Kim Give Out and Disgraceful Francis -- at the conclusion of their English journey, Give Out announced from the position of the Brixton Academy that the concert was «our last manifest.»

While the Pixies did abolish their planned American journey, due to «exhaustion,» the league together reconvened in the derive from of 1991 to curriculum vitae its fourth album, again with Gil Norton. Hiring former Captain Beefheart and Pere Ubu keyboardist Eric Drew Feldman as an girl friday colleague, the league together moved stand behind toward piercing finished, claiming to be inspired by the manifestness of Ozzy Osbourne in a neighboring studio. Upon its in let off, Trompe le Monde was hailed by some as a welcome reparation to the common-sense of Surfer Rosa and Doolittle, but closer inspection revealed that it relied heavily on sonic recount and featured very few vocals by Give Out and none of her songs. The league together embarked on another supranational journey, playing stadiums in Europe but theaters in America. During the derive from of 1992, the Pixies opened for U2 on the beginning leg of the Zoo TV tour; it would be their last trek through the Coalesced States. Upon the conclusion of the Zoo TV journey the Pixies went on hiatus, with Give Out returning to the Breeders, who released the EP Safari later that derive from. Francis began working on a unaccompanied album.

As he was preparing to let off his unaccompanied launch, Francis gave an examine on BBC«s Air 5, announcing that the Pixies were disbanding. He hadn»t yet aware of the other members; later that day, he faxed them his communication. Inverting his position name to Truthful Disgraceful, Francis released his eponymous launch that derive from to tainted reviews; over the next few years, Truthful Black«s audience grade shrank to a uncharitable cult following. The Breeders released their second album, Last Excitement, in the in of 1993. The album became a off guard hit, going gold in the U.S. and spawning the hit separate «Cannonball.» Soon after, Give Out also formed the Amps, who released their one (and only) album, Pacer, in 1995. Santiago and Lovering formed the Martinis in 1995 and appeared on the soundtrack to Empire Records. Although 4AD began issuing archival Pixies releases, including Eradication to the Pixies 1987-1991, Pixies at the BBC, and Undivided B-Sides in the belated »90s and originally 2000s, those were relatively years for the band's members.

After releasing the pathetic The Cult of Ray for American in 1996, Disgraceful shuffled between different labels before ending up at spinART for 1999«s Pistolero, where he also released his succeeding unaccompanied albums, most of which were met with a unblemished-to-middling return. Give Out and the shelf of the Breeders, meanwhile, suffered from problems ranging from signification calumniation to writer»s cube, and only surfaced intermittently, spending dated in the studio but only having a account for of the Three Degrees« «Collage» on the soundtrack to 1999»s The Mod Troop to manifest for their efforts until they released Ownership TK in 2002. David Lovering port side the Martinis and became the touring drummer for Cracker, and also appeared on Donelly«s Sliding and Diving, but build himself unoccupied in the belated »90s. Combining his studies in electronic engineering at Wentworth Association of Technology and his years of performing common message, Lovering dubbed himself a «scientific phenomenalist,» a curmudgeonly between a scientist, manifest artist, and master, and warmed up the crowds at Truthful Disgraceful, Breeders, Camper Van Beethoven, and Consent To Lee Buffalo concerts. Santiago and his helpmate Linda Mallari continued the Martinis through the «90s, recording several demos and self-released albums. Santiago also began a profession composing soundtracks and insignificant music, start with the grounds for 2000»s Offence & Disciplining in Suburbia, to which Disgraceful also contributed a track.

At the dated, rumors circulated that Santiago would coincide with Disgraceful on-position during one of his London dates on the Dog in the Sand tour; though this didn«t upon, it at least sparked hopes that the Pixies would finally reunite. These hopes seemed unjustified until 2003, when Disgraceful revealed in an examine that he had considered reuniting the league together and that he, Give Out, Santiago, and Lovering once in a while got together to jam. Soon after, it was confirmed that the Pixies would reunite in 2004 for U.S. tours in the derive from and in, with an display at that year»s Coachella red-letter day and gigs in Europe and the U.K. that summer, including performances at the T in the Estate, Roskilde, Pinkpop, and V festivals. All 15 of the band«s North American hospitable-up journey dates were recorded and released in restricted editions of 1,000 copies, which were sold online and at the shows. The week after the Pixies» Coachella display, the crave-awaited DVD retrospective Pixies and revamped best-of Welling Up of Mutilation: The Best of Pixies were released by 4AD. The league together also released two songs, «Bam Thwok» and a account for of Warren Zevon«s «Ain»t That Attractive at All,» in 2004.

Despite the Pixies touring regularly throughout the 2000s and 2010s, no more new music appeared until 2013, when the guild went into the studio with longtime processor Gil Norton. During those sessions, Give Out officially port side the guild. Bassist Simon Archer, aka Ding, replaced Give Out in the studio, and the league together hired the Muffs« Kim Shattuck for touring duties. «Bagboy,» the Pixies» first new kerfuffle b evasion in nine years, arrived in July 2013. That September, they self-released EP1, the first in a series of hurriedly releases, via their website. That November, Shattuck was let go from the band; a few weeks later, Paz Lenchantin -- who also played with Zwan and A Diminish To Perfection Division -- was drafted as the Pixies« bassist. EP2 arrived in January 2014, and EP3 was issued that Walk. The EPs were compiled as the album Indie Cindy for that April»s Curriculum Vitae Stockpile Day.
