After years of silence, the Pixies have been blasting through 2004 with a newfound interest in preserving their legacy and possibly even furthering it with their nonstop touring schedule. It goes without saying that the Pixies are an incredibly influential group and that Frank Black's songwriting was never as good as it was at the band's peak.
That said, despite it's highpoints, this DVD feels a bit like a missed opportunity. The only real point of interest for anyone other than Pixies fans is the terrific 'Gouge' documentary. Through interviews with all band members except for Kim Deal and a slew of rock critics and musicians such as David Bowie and Thom Yorke, it does a great job of explaining just why the Pixies were such an important band. The one complaint is that the documentary is filled out with performances from a concert which is available in its entirely elsewhere on the disc.
And it's a great concert from the Pixies earlier days. It would have been nice, though, if they could have also included another concert from later in the band's career. I would have liked to have been surprised with some rare performances, but admittedly, I have no idea how much footage the band actually has in the vault.
The behind the scenes, on the road footage is hardly essential viewing and is kind of boring unless after all these years your still obsessed with every bit of Pixies minutiae. Or Kim Deal, since she's featured more than anyone else.
Finally, there are the videos. While as a Pixies fan, it's nice to have them all, it's doubtful that anyone will be going back to rewatch them too often. They are incredibly low-budget and it shows. None of them are particularly memorable.
So for those who have yet to discover the Pixies, skip over the DVD for now and go straight to the CDs. For everyone else, this is worth checking out, even if a little more content would have been desirable.

Well... for those old enough to remember the Pixies when they first broke through in the late 80's, they would recall just how fresh, exciting, and absolutely non-compromising they were. They made heavy metal music look limp and blew away most other indie acts at the time with the sheer intensity of their sound.
The first time I remember hearing them was at a party in 1989, a friend was raving about them and waving a tape of "Come on Pilgrim" around the room. Next I heard "This monkeys gone to heaven" on the radio a little while later and I knew they were something else. I bought Doolittle on the strength of that song and it became the soundtrack to my youth in 1990... (first real job, first time out of home, lots of parties!) I bought every release, when released, until their sad demise. When I first heard Nirvana's "Nevermind", around the time of the Pixies breaking up, I didn't need to hear Kurt say he ripped the Pixies off because to me it was so obvious!
The live music featured on this DVD is just plain awesome, the Pixies playing a killer set in front of a British audience threatened by the burgeoning fire of a band just about to hit a creative peak. It is riveting stuff! I would give this part of the CD a five out of five!
The film clips are excellent of course, The Pixies were pretty full on but they also had an awesome sense of humor - the film clips and Black Francis's lyrics prove this. I always loved the anti-film clip clips they made, i.e. "Here comes your man"'s lack of lip-syncing (they just open their mouths!) and "Velouria" which consists of the band running down a rocky cliff in slow motion... may sound boring but it really funny to watch Black Francis almost fall over a rock at the start!!!

The Pixies were and still are one of the greatest Rock bands of all time. They mixed a raw youthful punk sound, with latin flair, and some of the most derangued and beautiful lyrics ever written. They weren't a popular band during their time, but have since influenced everyone from Nirvana to Radiohead.
The DVD is actually more than I expected. I thought we'd get a standard set of videos with a bunch of old interviews and maybe a tiny bit of live stuff. Couldn't be more wrong.
The live show is priceless, and worth the cost of the DVD alone. It's an early show (Frank looks so young), and captures music ranging from "Pilgrim" all the way up to "Surfer Rosa". Raw, beautiful, rock your socks off stuff here. Just makes you want more.
The video section is pretty standard stuff, a collection of videos from back in the day. Nothing too special, but nice to have and see after all these years.
The documentary "On The Road" is a decent look back at backstage antics, roadtrips through Europe, etc, mixed with various clips of live footage. Decent, but nothing too spectacular.
The documentary "Gouge" on the other hand, is wonderful. Newer interviews with the band, and praising words from people such as David Bowie, Tom York, and Bono. This goes through all the Pixies releases, and puts everything into a nice perspective. The only omission from this is Kim Deal. She's nowhere to be found, and that's saddening. "Bass Goddess" she is called in this section, too bad she couldn't be included.
Overall this is a must for any Pixies hardcore fan, and also provides a nice glimpse into the band for any Newbie.
