Pixies Biography

“A lot of it felt like no time had passed at all.” – Black Francis

Beloved and enigmatic, influential and proudly difficult to categorize, the

Pixies made a triumphant return in 2004 following an eleven-year hiatus. The

celebrated band wowed both fans and critics at performances around the world

and continued for seven years. For all those years, fans clamored for more and it

remained uncertain as to whether or not the Pixies would ever record again. Until


Drummer David Lovering explains the events leading up to writing new music.

“We’ve been talking about this for years and years… ever since 2004. From

2004 to 2011 we were touring, which was a longer time than we’d been a band

initially – and that amazed us – but except for the one track (“Bam Thwok”), we

didn’t have anything new. We didn’t want to turn into a casino act. So we started

putting it together.”

It was important for the band to continue moving forward. As singer/songwriter

Black Francis points out, “We did a reunion tour and the tour went much longer

than we anticipated. We wanted to compete on a real playing field again. You

get hungry, you want to be judged: we wanted to be vital.”

admits that the Pixies’ return to making new music was not without obstacles.

“There was some fear and trepidation because we were hoping to do that

recording session with the original foursome of the band. Suddenly that was not

going to be the case and it was pretty devastating; not necessarily unexpected but

very unwanted. Joey, David and I didn’t really know what to do: we were a little

bit shell shocked that as much as we wanted it, it wasn’t going to happen. But we

came back and met and everyone believed in the music. We would rather forge

ahead and see what this turns into rather than just retiring the whole thing.”

Guitarist Joey Santiago was effusive. “I wanted this to happen. I love to play

music and I love this band. This time around there’s more appreciation, more

gratitude.” Lovering was cautious at first. “Putting out new music after so long

is kind of a double-edged sword. I know a lot of people asked for it; and I know

bands that have gotten together after a long time and done albums and I’m really

not a fan of it but overall I’m very confident about the music. It turned out really

well and it was a lot of fun and basically that’s good to me because I had a great

time doing it.”

In October 2012, the Pixies convened to Rockfield Studios in Wales with

longtime producer Gil Norton (who did Doolittle, Bossa Nova and Trompe Le

Monde). As Lovering recalls, “We had (five) songs going in to the studio and we

wrote (another seven) there. We’d never done that before, and some great songs

came out of it, in fact. It worked out pretty darned well.”

The band recorded with Norton in secret. “It didn’t really serve any purpose to

make it public,” says Black Francis. “But there are very few mysteries anymore

with the internet and the feeling was we should try to keep this just part of our

lives and not have it up for grabs. Gil was very excited. He’s produced us more

than any artist he’s worked with. We’re friends and everybody liked what he did

in the past. We don’t always agree with him – we don’t – but we respect him. He

pushes us out of our comfort zone.”

With Norton pushing the Pixies out of its comfort zone, the band emerged with

a cache of new songs, including “Bagboy,” offered as a free download on June

28, and its companion video that had some one-million YouTube hits in its first

week. In addition, EP1 - “Andro Queen,” “Another Toe in the Ocean,” Indie

Cindy,” and “What Goes Boom,” the Pixies first collection of new music since

1991’s Trompe le Monde, is released on September 3, 2013.

The Pixies will tour extensively and is anxious to get back out on the road and

premiere the new material, especially Santiago. “It will be interesting to see the

audience reaction when we play the new stuff. I always think of iconic bands that

come out with new material and everyone files out for a liquid break. They’re

either emptying out liquids or getting more liquids. So for sure the new material

will be strategically placed in the set. We’ve been rehearsing and the songs sound

just great. I can’t wait to play the new stuff live.”

How will fans react to the new music? Santiago remains confident. “The great

thing about this music and these songs is that, when I step back and listen to it, it

sounds like the Pixies. It’s the way we walk. We’re lucky to have that.” Black

Francis sums it up: “I just want to make music. We love connecting with people

and we want people to feel really happy about this musical experience we’ve all

embarked upon. At the end of the day we’re making fuckin’ rock n’roll records.

We’re not trying to save the world!”
