|6M||The Best Of Pixies In Concert||20131226|
Steve recaps on the very special gig Pixies played as part of our inaugural 6Music: In Concert show, earlier this year. Black Francis joins Steve to chat about the history of the group, before we replay the band playing live in front of a tiny audience at the BBC's Maida Vale studio.
The band shaped the sound of Alternative Rock. Having sold just under 2 million albums worldwide, they are among rock music's greatest pioneers. Single-handedly spawning the grunge movement of the 1990s, their unique mix of punk, pop and surf rock inspired an entire generation of musicians, and embodied 90's alternative Rock.
They are - Pixies.

Lauren Laverne presents the band's exclusive Maida Vale session from early December, complete with extra tracks. This was originally broadcast in her weekday show as they released their 9th studio album Monuments to an Elegy, the latest instalment of their Teargarden by Kaleidyscope album cycle.
