In the history of modern American music there were few bands like the Pixies. Theirs was an unparalleled musical path, influencing countless others despite modest financial success. In 1992, their chief songwriter and vocalist Black Francis announced his intention to quit via a blunt facsimile. That it seemed, was that.
Then to the amazement of everyone, the Pixies reunited in 2004. loudQUIETloud is the story of this unforeseen plot twist – a deeply compelling portrait of four band members and their difficult, tense and ultimately triumphant return. The Pixies, as it turns out, are one of rock music’s great bands.
From the first rehearsal after their reunion to the final bow nearly one year later, the press shy Pixies granted unprecedented access to NY directors Steven Cantor & Matthew Galkin. The result is an insider’s perspective of the Pixies and a fascinating document of the modern touring band. Relationships with each other, relationships with family and relationships with fans are brought sharply into focus alongside striking concert footage. From the loud emotional highs of performing to renewed tensions between band members, the Pixies combustible stage dynamic is laid bare.
Featuring “Where Is My Mind,” “Gouge Away,” “Hey” and many more,
LOUDquietLOUD: For anyone who saw the reunion tours over the past couple of years, for anyone who saw the band back in the late 80's and early 90's and for anyone who listens to modern day rock music.
