  • The Pixies



    The Pixies are an alternative rock band from Boston. Formed in 1986, The Pixies found a lot of success in the UK and other areas of Europe but never really gained the success they deserved in the US. Heavily influenced by punk and surf rock, The Pixies were almost before their time. The songs they wrote were cryptic and often offbeat such as what was found on the albums “Melody Maker” and “Sounds.” They were pioneers though and influenced a lot of other bands to make their move such as Nirvana. They were heavily credited with popularizing the extreme dynamics of alternative rock, although they didn’t stay together long enough to reap the benefits. Still, they sound amazing on vinyl, and if you look back, had they stayed together they certainly would have been hit performers.
