The Pixies are one of the original alternative rock groups of the 80s.
Despite a short initial life span, and modest, if respectable, record sales, The Pixies have proven to be one of the most influential outfits on rock bands over the last twenty years. Artists ranging from Nirvana to Weezer have cited the band as a primary influence.
The Pixies reunited in the mid-2000s, and have toured sporadically since.
Connections to Weezer
