loudQUIETloud – a film about the Pixies
. . . and i call myself a fan. the shame of it! loudQUIETloud is a 2006 film about the Pixies and their reunion that i only discovered a few weeks ago, despite my friend Leo having told me about it (apparently). i guess i ignored him. anyway you can watch it below in its entirety. that’s a full 1 hour and 25 minutes all about that great rocking guitar monster that was the Pixies.
and for the die-hard fans there’s a book i’d recommend called The Oral History of a Band Called Pixies by Josh Frank and Caryn Ganz. there’s also a dvd available through their old label 4AD. simply titled Pixies, it brings together a 1988 gig at The Town and Country Club in London, all their videos and a couple of documentaries
now here’s an interesting little extra that i discovered searching through the miracle that is Soundcloud. it’s a shockingly good remix (that’s also free to download) of one of the Pixies most popular songs, the mighty, Monkey Gone To Heaven. it was done by someone called krusha and you can find more of his stuff here
