loudQUIETloud: A Film About the Pixies
This film captures a fair amount of this band's electric charge and documents its 2004 reunion tour.
Film Review  October 27, 2006, by Marc Savlov
"...Directed by: Steven Cantor and Matthew Galkin. Has there ever been another band like the Pixies? If so, they were lost to time, influencing the musical spectrum in ways too subtle (or too obvious) for us to discern..."

ACL Teaser: Shakey Graves
Why is the local one-man-band in the new Pixies video?
DAILY Music  October 9, 2013, by Kevin Curtin
"...I bet a lot of people in Austin had the same reaction I did when they watched the Pixies video for “Andro Queen,” which debuted on Monday: “Oh cool, a new Pixies video... Wait, WTF? Is that Shakey Graves? Why the hell is Shakey Graves in a Pixies video?” Or something like that...."

Monkeys Gone to Heaven
The Pixies aren't a family and that's a good thing, according to Kim Deal
Music Story  September 17, 2010, by Audra Schroeder
"..."Turn on an engine, and I'll fall asleep," Kim Deal purrs, embracing a life that's been lived partially on the road. After roughly 20 minutes on the phone with the Pixies bassist and Breeders founder, there's no rock star huffing or whiffs of nostalgia, just the feeling that you could totally hang out with her on a porch in Dayton, Ohio, and smoke a pack of Pall Malls...."

Monkeys Gone to Heaven
Pixies drummer David Lovering by the numbers
Music Story  September 17, 2010, by Greg Beets
"...David Lovering is the grounding rod of a band whose alternating currents proved distinctive enough to define an entire era of rock. As you might expect from someone whose youthful passions were music and electrical engineering, the Massachusetts-born Pixies drummer tends to describe the band's sonic output in terms of method rather than emotion..."

The Salt of Life
This Italian import by the director of Mid-August Lunch addresses the concerns of aging men who realize they are no longer attractive to young women.
Film Review  April 6, 2012, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...We can tell Giovanni is pleasantly tripped out because he does yet more original things, like sitting down in the middle of traffic and wading in a public fountain. These acts lead him to his lustful fantasy conclusion, set to the tune of the Pixies’ “Here Comes Your Man.” So hyperbolic are his fantasies that it’s clear that not only will they never come true, but they never were true to begin with..."

Meet the Pixies
Music Story  September 17, 2010, by Raoul Hernandez
"...On the evening of Thursday, July 29, in Austin, noon Friday loomed in Brisbane, Australia. At 9pm sharp, Central Daylight Time, Pixies guitarist Joey Santiago and bandmate David Lovering called their respective Chronicle inquirers from their tour stop Down Under..."

The United States of Leland
Kevin Spacey-produced indie drama plays like The OC's more intellectual, older sibling.
Film Review  April 16, 2004, by Marc Savlov
"...After all, Leland P. Fitzgerald (Gosling) did stab an autistic boy to death (to a soundtrack of the Pixies, no less) and offers zero rationale..."

Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me
Move over, John Waters and Paul Bartel. There's a new, fresh auteur on the guilty pleasure/psychotronic/cult film block. A one-time actor turned budding director and writer, Hershman successfully borrows some...
Film Review  August 27, 1993, by Pamela Bruce
"...The strong points of Hershman's film are his wonderfully wacky story in combination with a terrific, top-notch cast whose performances easily render credible, slice-of-life images of life in the lower-class lane. There is also a great musical soundtrack to accompany the film, with songs by the Cramps, the Pixies and Violent Femmes, among others..."

Going long distance with Kim Deal
DAILY Music  September 21, 2010, by Audra Schroeder

A day in the life of 'Austin City Limits' at 30
Music Story  October 29, 2004, by Andy Langer
"...While we've all seen the finished product, first-hand for some of the lucky few, what goes on behind the scenes has mostly been a well-guarded secret. So, with an assist from the Pixies, we're peeking behind the curtain..."

Sound Checking for a Pulse, and Finding It
The rock docs in this year's 24 Beats Per Second program rattle and hum with soul and revolt.
Screens Story  March 10, 2006, by Josh Rosenblatt
"...Three years ago, documentary film director Steven Cantor and producer Matthew Galkin were shooting the first season of Family Bonds, a documentary series about a family of bail bondsmen and bounty hunters in New York, for HBO. The two bonded (apologies) during their time on the set over their mutual love of the Pixies, the legendary indies who had imploded unceremoniously back in 1992..."

SXSW Panel Recap: A Conversation with Kim Deal & Steve Albini
Indie rock revelations are all in the deets
DAILY SXSW  March 15, 2018, by Libby Webster
"...Since becoming the Pixies’ bassist in 1986 and then forming the Breeders a few years later, the 56-year-old Dayton, Ohio, native has carried herself with a casual openness in interviews. As such, three decades into her role as seminal alt-rock pioneer, any remaining revelations occur few and far between...."

Crash Landing in Teen Heaven
A reunited Sincola on the 1990s
DAILY Music  September 8, 2011, by Raoul Hernandez
"...The 1990s allowed me to disengage from “The New Sincerity” music scene & explore songwriting from a grittier arena. The Breeders were my catalyst: during a road trip with non-stop abuse to my Breeders & Pixies cassettes (back in the day!) I was feeling inspired so I pulled over at a rest stop and called Greg (ahem - Wendell Stivers)..."
