Pixies - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1772 words)
Pixies found only modest success in their US homeland, but became significantly more successful in the United Kingdom and throughout Europe.
The Pixies began playing shows in the Boston area, and during a concert with Throwing Muses, the band was noticed by Gary Smith, a producer at Fort Apache Studios.
Pixies were at the height of their popularity, however, and while headlining at the Reading Festival in 1991, they played a highly enthusiastic version of "Debaser" which has become legendary among fans.
