Formed in Boston in 1986, the Pixies, originally formed of principal songwriter and singer/guitarist Black Francis, guitarist Joey Santiago, bassist Kim Deal, and drummer David Lovering, the Pixies spearheaded what later became known as the alternative rock boom of the 1990s.
With their signature loud-soft dynamic and abrasive mix of surf rock and punk, the Pixies’ influence on popular music to this day has been untold, their most famous fans being Nirvana. “When I heard the Pixies for the first time, I connected with that band so strongly I should have been in that band – or at least a Pixies cover band,” frontman Kurt Cobain said, stating that in forming Nirvana he was “basically trying to rip off the Pixies”.
