He first became widely known as a result of his singing and dancing appearances in Dr. This was followed by a three-month world tour and four-month return to the US, ending on December 18 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City (see tour dates (http://www.pixiesmusic.com/live_04.php) for detailed information). He was born in Hartford, Connecticut. It is rumoured that these dates hold the world record for fastest selling shows ever. 13 February 1951) is an American actor who starred in the 1981 horror film An American Werewolf in London. Tickets for shows on this tour often sold out minutes after going on sale despite some rather moderately sized Canadian cities such as Winnipeg and Regina being stops. David Naughton (b. It wasn't until 2004 when the Pixies would play their first "post-breakup" concert on April 13 at The Fine Line Music Cafe in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota and a 15 concert warmup tour of the western United States and Canada, culminating in the performance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
Roughly once a year on April Fool's Day someone would be led to believe that the band had re-united. In the 11 years since the band broke up, there were a number of rumors that would circulate regarding reunion tours. This revitalized some interest in the band after they were gone. There are substantial parallels between the two groups' sounds and Kurt Cobain was known to have been a fan—in fact, in a Rolling Stone interview he claimed "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was his attempt to write a Pixies song.
Right at the moment they were imploding, Nirvana was recording Nevermind, the album that would break alternative rock into the mainstream. Musically, the Pixies were just slightly ahead of their time. Santiago has appeared on Frank Black's solo albums, writes music for FOX television, and has a band called The Martinis with his wife, Linda Mallari. Lovering dropped back into obscurity, making occasional appearances as a "scientific phenomenalist", performing experiments on stage; he also drummed on one of Tanya Donelly's solo albums.
Kim Deal has also recorded with The Amps. The album, Title TK, finally appeared in 2002, with only Kim and Kelley remaining from the previous Breeders lineup. However, for several years they struggled to produce another album, mainly due to Kelley Deal's struggles with heroin. Deal returned to the Breeders, and scored a hit with "Cannonball" from that group's Last Splash in 1993.
He then went on to form a band with Scott Boutier, Eric Drew, Rich Gilbert, David McGaffrey, and Dave Phillips called Frank Black and the Catholics. Black Francis renamed himself Frank Black, and released several solo albums. Without telling anyone, Black Francis ended the band, and it wasn't until a year later that he faxed an official notice to the other members. Trompe le Monde still featured little input from Deal and wasn't as critically regarded as their first few albums.
Break-up announcements notwithstanding, one more album was to follow. The Pixies were at the height of their popularity, however, and while headlining at the Reading Festival in 1991, they played a highly enthusiastic version of "Debaser" which has become legendary among fans. Deal was not pleased, and unilaterally announced an apparent break-up of the band on-stage during the following tour. During this time, Black Francis limited Deal's contributions to the band; the first two albums had been partly written by Deal, but when Bossanova was released in 1990, all songs were by him.
After Doolittle, Black Francis temporarily went solo, while Kim Deal formed The Breeders with Tanya Donelly of Throwing Muses and Deal's sister, Kelley. Their sophomore album, Doolittle, featured three prominent singles: "Debaser," "Here Comes Your Man," and "Monkey Gone to Heaven." It was a top 10 hit in the UK and reached the top 100 in North America. For the remainder of their career, the Pixies remained large-scale stars in Britain and cult figures in the US. The band remained unsigned in the US for a while, but after a foray up the UK pop charts and some inroads into American college rock stations, they were picked up by Elektra Records.
4AD was a British music label, and the notoriously rabid British music press immediately clutched the Pixies to their collective bosoms and refused to let go. It was followed by their first full-length album, Surfer Rosa in early 1988. Eight tracks from the demo were selected for the Come on Pilgrim EP, the band's first release. The demo fell into the hands of Ivo Watts-Russell, owner of 4AD, who signed the band.
Smith became the band's manager and produced a 17 track demo (known as the "Purple Tape", publicly released in 2002). During a concert with Throwing Muses, the band was noticed by Gary Smith, a producer at Fort Apache Studios. They arrived at a name ("Pixies") by selecting an entry from the dictionary at random, and began playing shows in the Boston area. Reportedly, the ad asked for a bass player who liked The Mamas and the Papas and Husker Du.
Bassist Kim Deal joined the band after she responded to a classified ad Black Francis had placed which requested an unusual combination of musical influences. The band was formed in 1986 in Boston, Massachusetts by Joey Santiago and Black Francis (born Charles Thompson IV). Most notable was their use of soft verses and hard choruses, which was later popularized by Nirvana. Their style of music influenced many aspects of alternative rock throughout the 1990s.
