Coinciding with a sold-out tour, Pixies at the BBC, 1988-91 is being released on March 8th on 4AD. Being pressed for the first time on vinyl, it's also going to be available on double CD.



Between 1988 and 1991 - during the band's 4AD years - Pixies recorded six sessions for the BBC, five for John Peel and one for Mark Goodier. Catching the raw energy of the band's live performances, these sessions felt immediately noteworthy, timestamping a moment when Black Francis, Kim Deal, Joey Santiago and David Lovering were motoring out front.


Among the twenty-four tracks they recorded in this period (inc. two doubles - ‘Allison' and ‘Wave of Mutilation') are favourites from mini-album Come on Pilgrim and three of their four 4AD studio albums. Also recorded were three covers; reworks of The Beatles' ‘Wild Honey Pie', Eraserhead's ‘(In Heaven) Lady in the Radiator Song' and The Beach Boys' ‘Hang On To Your Ego', a track Black Francis covered a few years later on his debut Frank Black solo album.


Originally released on CD in 1998, this reboot now sees all tracks from the six sessions included and presented in chronological order. Something fans have been asking for. Coming as both a triple black vinyl LP and double CD, the sleeve is also new with a wonderful black and gold design by Chris Bigg now adorning it. A design that really stands out, Chris pays loving tribute to the band's late-visual director Vaughan Oliver, using unseen archival Pixies imagery by long-time collaborator Simon Larbalestier.
