In 1989 Pixies blew the roof off The Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury. In 2014, following the release of their latest album Indie Cindie, they are bringing their roaring guitars and stop-start dynamics to the Other Stage. They come armed with an impressive back catalogue of intertwining male-female harmonies, expressive, cryptic lyrics and punk-rock-surf riffs. Pixies made a strong bond with the BBC in 1998 when they released the Peel-session compilation Pixies at the BBC in 1998. The compilation was recorded over several sessions between 1988 and 1991 at the BBC. The album is characterized by its raw, under-produced sound. One of the most influential American alternative rock bands of the late '80s, Pixies have been through various line-up break-ups and make-ups but they will stand united for Glastonbury this year!
