Beginnings

Formed in Boston during the 1980's, American alternative rock band Pixies is comprised of members Black Francis, Joey Santiago, Kim Deal, and David Lovering. The band was founded by Francis and Santiago, who first met after being assigned as suite mates while attending the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Bass player Kim Deal joined the band after responding to a classified ad in a local paper. Even though Deal arrived at her audition without a bass or the knowledge of how to play one, she was the only person to respond to the ad and was later subsequently given a bass to practice on. Originally, Santiago, Francis, and Deal wanted Deal's sister Kelley to join as a drummer, but when she passed the group hired David Lovering on a suggestion from Deal's husband.

A Rough Start

After filing out their lineup, Pixies began to rehearse in Lovering's parents' garage and gradually began performing at bars and clubs in the Boston area. At a concert with Throwing Muses, the band was noticed by producer Gary Smith who persuaded and helped them create a 17-track demo that is known to fans as "The Purple Tape." Pixies hired local promoter Ken Goes to be their manager, and Goes passed the demo to the independent record label 4AD. Originally, 4AD was uninterested in the Pixies because they believed them to be too normal and too rock 'n' roll, but the label had a change of heart and went on to sign the band.

After signing with 4AD, eight tracks from the demo were selected to be released as the EP Come On Pilgrim. The EP was then quickly followed up with a full-length album, Surfer Rosa, released in March of 1988. Surfer Rosa earned a positive response from America critics and fans, but the album was a huge hit in Europe, earning the title of "Album of the Year" from Melody Maker and Sounds.

Tension in the Group

Riding on the success of their first album, Pixies signed an American distribution deal with Elektra, a major record label. The band also formed a relationship with British producer Gil Norton. Norton worked with the group to help produce the band's sophomore album, Doolittle. The most successful single off the album was "Monkey Gone to Heaven," which was a Top 10 modern rock radio hit.

As a whole, Doolittle was well received by fans and critics. However, following the release of the album, tensions among band members Deal and Francis reached an all time high. Deal and Francis had previously argued about including songs Deal wrote on the band's albums and Francis' complete musical control of the group.

The pair's fighting became exponentially worse when Francis threw his guitar at Deal during one show and Deal refused to play at a show in Frankfurt. From that point on, Deal and Francis stopped talking and the band as a whole suffered, with fighting among members occurring on a daily basis. Pixies eventually decided on taking a break to hopefully ease some of the tensions.

The Inevitable Breakup

Following their hiatus, Pixies returned to the studio to record and release two more albums. Bossanova, the band's third album, was released in August of 1990 and peaked at #3 in the United Kingdom. Trompe le Monde was released in 1991, and to support their fourth album, an international Pixies tour was launched.

After their own tour, the band opened for U2 on the Zoo TV tour. Even though Pixies continued to be successful during this time, the fighting and tension between band members never ceased. At the end of the Zoo TV tour, the problem was worse than ever and the Pixies went on another sabbatical. During this sabbatical, Francis announced in an interview with BBC Radio that Pixies was finished, which was news to the other band members who found out afterwards with Santiago receiving a phone call, but Deal and Lovering getting nothing more than a fax.

Reunited at Last

The members of Pixies each went on to do their own thing in the years following the band's official breakup. Reunion rumors that occasionally swirled around in the music industry were quickly dismissed by Francis, but in 2003 a series of phone calls among the original quartet sparked a few low key rehearsals and those rehearsals sparked a decision to reunite.

Pixies reunited on April 13, 2004, eleven years after their breakup, to play at the Fine Line Music Café in Minneapolis, MN. They've since released one new single, "Bam Thwok," and continue to play together across the world. Most recently the Pixies toured to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of Doolittle.
