Pixies Essentials

Boston cult icons the Pixies may have only achieved minor commercial success, but the impact they made on the musical landscape was immense. With their jagged guitar riffs, melodic harmonies, and walls of distortion, Black Francis and Co. virtually drew the blueprint for ‘90s alternative rock, with acts as far-reaching as Nirvana, Radiohead, and Weezer all citing the band as a major influence. Surfer Rosa and Doolittle are both considered classics of the genre, while a ‘00s reunion and comeback album, Indie Cindy, further cemented their status as masters of noise.
