The Pixies' Sell Out dropped last week. The concert DVD sells for around $20 and includperformances from their 2004 reunion concert with songs such as "Bone Machine," "Where Is My Mind," "Gigantic" and more.
In a recent press release, Frank Black stated, "On my first day back with the Pixies, [I was] reminded of our early days of rehearsing. To be honest, I'd forgotten a lot of the words to the songs. I was all over the place on that first day. But I knew there was a lot of muscle memory involved, and after I reviewed a little bit that night it all came right back by the next day. And by a couple of days after that, we were sounding exactly the same as we had years before."
