Alternative rock as melodrama – the Pixies are unbeatable in this discipline. Exuberant emotions are discharged in rousing melodic upsurges. Heaven and hell. Pure overwhelmingness. “I Bleed”. The band around the charismatic Black Francis is the missing link between gothic and grunge. Nirvana or Radiohead listened very carefully to their albums from the late 80s and early 90s. The mega hit “Where is my mind?” gave the congenial sound to two of the most important cinematic manifestos of the 90s, “Trainspotting” and “Fight Club”. With their 2019 album “Beneath the Eyrie”, the Pixies showed after much turbulence that they still know how to touch their magic potion. The Pixies magic is alive and well. The Pure&Crafted is proud to have the all-time heroes as headliners.
