"...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..."
"...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...."
"..."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...."
"...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..."
"...AC: Before this tour, the Pixies always shied away from performing "Here Comes Your Man."..."
"...Austin Chronicle: Have the Pixies ever played the Philippines?..."
"...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..."
"...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..."
"...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..."
"...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..."
"...Harris, Max Perlich and Vic Tayback. A psycho-thriller with a creepy enough cast and featured music by the Pixies...."
"...In case you didn't read this week's music story, Pixies play their 1989 LP Doolittle tonight and tomorrow at Austin Music Hall. It's the unofficial start of an early 1990s nostalgia marathon, followed by Pavement on Sept..."
"...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..."
"...PixiesPixies DVD (4AD)PixiesWave of Mutilation: Best of Pixies (4AD)..."
"...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..."
"...Fool the World: The Oral History of a Band Called Pixies..."
"...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...."
"...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)..."
