Pixies

Pixies

Profile:
Black Francis (real name Charles Michael Kittridge Thompson IV) (vocals, guitar), Kim Deal (bass, vocals), Joseph Alberto Santiago (guitar) & David Lovering (drums).
Combining jagged, roaring guitars and stop-start dynamics with melodic pop hooks, intertwining male-female harmonies and evocative, cryptic lyrics, the Pixies were one of the most influential American alternative rock bands of the late '80s. The band were inventive, rabid rock fans that turned conventions inside out, melding punk and indie guitar rock, classic pop, surf rock, and stadium-sized riffs with singer/guitarist Black Francis' bizarre, fragmented lyrics about space, religion, sex, mutilation, and pop culture; while the meaning of his lyrics may have been impenetrable, the music was direct and forceful. The Pixies' busy, brief songs, extreme dynamics, and subversion of pop song structures proved one of the touchstones of '90s alternative rock.

The "Album" section is all over the place, all these limited live albums shouldn't be in there. I guess, that's what the "Miscellaneous" section is for. Hope someone knows how to "fix" this.
