4.0 out of 5 stars The Year Was 1987, November 8, 2004
This review is from: Pixies (DVD) (DVD)
...and the Pixies were a group of youngins having a good time playing music. No one outside the left-of-center had ever heard of these noiseaholics who just happened to not really care about what the Aqua Net militia and your Yanni loving dads thought. In the midst of being seen and classified by the Billboard masses, the Pixies fought every inch to be heard in what David Bowie describes as "sludge", cookie cutter garbage that cluttered the music landscape for much of the 80's and early 90's. Is this reminiscent of now?

This DVD exemplifies the Pixies righteously. It includes all of the Pixies videos, which were not even a fraction as memorable as the music itself, and a 1987 London performance in it's entirety that captures not only the Pixies in their glorious years, but as well proves that this group was more influential to early 90's music renaissance than any other band.

As well, the DVD includes a great documentary on the band with commentary from the likes of David Bowie and PJ Harvey. It wonderfully sums up the band's existence, and it also contains live clips from the accompanying live performance.

This DVD includes home video footage from the Pixies' tour as well, right before Doolittle was released. Most of this portion will mainly appeal to the more-than-casual Pixies fan.

All in all, this DVD is a good buy, roughly selling for $20.00. While a fun and engaging view for anyone who likes the Pixies, it also contains a great documentary for the casual fan that needs to be brought up to speed. Overall, very good.
