Profil:
Pixies are an American alternative rock band formed in early 1986 in Boston, Massachusetts. The original lineup consisted of Black Francis (real name Charles Michael Kittridge Thompson IV) (vocals, guitar), Kim Deal (bass, vocals (1986 to 2013), Joey Santiago (guitar) and Dave 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 1980s. 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 1990s alternative rock.

Kim Deal left the band in 2013, and was briefly replaced for live performances by Kim Shattuck, before Paz Lenchantin joined the band as permanent bass player.

This page is a great example of why 'Albums' and 'Live Recordings' should be separate categories.
