HISTORY – 17 April 1989 – PIXIES Release Second LP ‘DOOLITTLE’ 30 Years Ago

17 April 2019

PIXIES, the band who changed noise rock in a way that it actually became part of the left side of the mainstream, released their second and one of their best LPs DOOLITTLE today 30 years ago, on 17 April 1989. Six years later (1995) the record certified gold in America (see, I just told you, left-side of the mainstream) thanks partly, IMO, to its accessible singles.

Rolling Stone wrote: “Another frightening, compelling whirlwind. Francis is at all times in command of the album, quietly stringing us along before turning on us and screaming for attention. It’s about time everyone started taking notice.

Three of Turn Up The Volume‘s favorite tracks…

– DEBASER –

– HERE COMES YOUR MAN –

– WAVE OF MUTILATION –
(Live version – all looking so young!)
