loudQUIETloud – The Pixies DVD

In the history of modern American music there are 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.

Beginning with the very first rehearsal to the final show nearly one year later, the press shy Pixies granted unprecedented access to NY directors Steven Cantor & Matthew Galkin for the duration of their 04 tour. From the loud emotional highs of performing to renewed tensions between personnel, the band’s combustible stage dynamic is laid bare.

Featuring the seminal ‘Where Is My Mind’, ‘Gouge Away’, ‘Hey’, ‘Caribou’ and many more Pixies songs.

loudQUIETloud is released by Plexi.
