Editorial Reviews

The Pixies are one of the most influential American acts of all time. Initially spanning the late eighties and early nineties, they created the blueprint for alternative rock that would be followed and embellished upon by everyone from grunge to Britpop. After 10 years apart, the Pixies reformed in 2004.

Around 6pm on a warm Saturday in August, the Pixies took the stage of the world-famous Newport Folk Festival to perform one of their most unique sets ever. Playing a completely acoustic performance, the reunited lineup of Frank Black, Kim Deal, Joey Santiago and David Lovering give a unique spin to 22 fan favorites!

Tracklisting: 1. Bone Machine 2. Cactus 3. Ed is Dead 4. All Around the World 5. Subbacultcha 6. Monkey Gone to Heaven 7. Is She Weird 8. Here Comes Your Man 9. River Euphrates 10. Velouria 11. Wave of Mutilation 12. I Bleed 13. Crackity Jones 14. Gouge Away 15. Hey 16. The Holiday Song 17. Nimrod’s Song 18. Mr. Grieves 19. Caribou 20. Vamos 21. Where is My Mind? 22. Gigantic

Bonus Features -21 Minute "fly on the wall" feature of the Pixies in rehearsals for their debut acoustic show as they deconstruct well-known Pixies songs from electric to acoustic versions, including "Debaser" (which didn’t make the final set list). -Photo Gallery

5.0 out of 5 stars Intimate Pixies August 25, 2006
By Phil NJ
Really good video. Most of the songs translate to acoustic really well. Compared to "Pixies Sell-out", this has quite a very different, more subtle dynamic. Francis's weird, edgy lyrics become much clearer. A good thing! Stand-outs: "Mr. Grieves", "Wave of Mutilation", "Gauge Away", "Hey" and "Debaser"...from the BTS docu. Excellent behind-the-scenes bonus footage. You get an intimate view of the band working out the new arrangements.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not tame. August 28, 2006
From the behind-the-scenes practice and dress rehersal on this DVD, it's apparent that the Pixies were not particularly comfortable performing an acoustic set. They had no reason to be nervous. It takes a lot more than a distortion pedal to make a Pixies song a Pixies song, and removing it just brings those signature elements to the surface. In particular, Joey's expressive guitar playing. Sounds I once assumed to be synthetic are now obviously the result of his gonzo style. But everyone contributes, and the clean acoustic arrangements make the sheer energy and catchiness of many Pixies songs stand out. How can you not sing along to "Hey" or "Gigantic"?

Pixies fans will buy this DVD regardless, but I think it may make a great introduction for new listeners. If you're just curious about the Pixies, give it a listen. Sing along a little. You'll like it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A different side of the pixies. February 13, 2011
Verified Purchase
I am a Pixies fan from way back and really love their hard driving,loud quiet loud style. This offering is a nice refreshing take on their classic tunes. This all acoustic film from the Newport Jazz Festival lets you hear some vocal details than could never be heard in the standard versions. I found I really enjoyed this softer side of the Pixies. The quality, both sound and picture is excellent. Much better than the Pixies Sellout tour film as a matter of fact. If you are a Pixies fan buy this CD and enjoy a different look at the band.
