Editorial Reviews

Alan Cross' Artist Profile of The Pixies is an energetic, well-researched audio guide to this incredibly influential alt-rock band. A true tribute to these creative giants, Cross takes listeners from their start in Boston in the '80's, through their college-radio hype, British success, and major influence on performers such as Nirvana and David Bowie. Cross makes the point that even though The Pixies are one of the most critically acclaimed bands of all time, they never enjoyed the financial success they deserved, until they rejoined in 2004 to play a tour and festivals in the US and the UK. This is a must-listen for those interested in this enduring band.

Publisher's Summary

In this new audiobook, broadcaster and music writer Alan Cross narrates the definitive history of The Pixies. Cross succeeds once again in revealing the fascinating history behind the music in the same compelling way we've come to expect from his long broadcasting career.
Rock on: listen to another Alan Cross Guide.
