The Pixies – Back again … “loudQUIETloud”

Pixies-800

“The Pixies’ musical style is an unorthodox marriage of surf music and punk rock, characterized by Black’s bristling lyrics and hackle-raising caterwaul, Kim Deal’s whispered harmonies and waspy basslines, Joey Santiago’s fragile guitar and the persistent flush of David Lovering’s drums” wrote a British journalist years ago. In my opinion a cool description for one of the best bands that walked this planet. And they’re back… again (sadly enough without Kim Deal) rocking the world. For the fans, like me, who couldn’t get tickets for their few recent gigs in America and Europe there’s a world tour coming up in 2014. But I’m not a patient guy… so in anticipation… I’m gonna watch the 2006 “loudQUIETloud” movie again. An excellent portrait of the band and their triumphant return way back in 2004 after their messy 1992 break-up. Come and join me to their planet of sound…
