The Pixies' David, Joey and Black in Studio Q


Pixies know they can pack venues with their time-honoured tunes alone. Albums like Come On Pilgrim, Surfer Rosa, and Doolittle made them a mainstay in the mid-1980s, and brought fans back out in droves when they reunited in 2004. But Boston's alternative trailblazers weren't satisfied resting on their laurels. This last year saw the release of their first new music in 20 years, but also the departure of founding bass player Kim Deal. Pixies join Jian to talk about forging ahead without their longtime bandmate, why they don't want to be a so-called nostalgia band, and the dynamism that bridges the decades.
