THE PIXIES
transitional time in music
history. While heavy metal
and pop still dominated
the airwaves, there was
a new sound emerging. An underground
movement of indie rockers was
beginning to attract fans who had grown
tired of more mainstream fanfare.
One of the pioneers of this alternative
rock movement was the Pixies.
Founded in Boston by college

Thompson IV (who later became

I had an opportunity to talk to lead
guitarist Joey Santiago, about the
bands history and recent reunion.
The plan was always to get in and out
of there, be international, be worldwide,
he said. We never wanted to be a local
band. If we did, we would have been
a cover band. Our whole intention was
to become something bigger than that
right away, added Santiago.
And thats exactly what happened.
In 1987, while opening for Throwing
Muses, the Pixies were noticed by
producer Gary Smith, who shared their
vision of world fame. Their 17-track
demo, Purple Tape, was released,
followed by their first full-length album,
Surfer Rosa.
Surfer Rosa earned them
international recognition and led to the
bands first European tour. But, despite
critical acclaim, Pixies music was not
for everyone.

Yu had two pivotal instructors whom
