Engineers include: James Birtwistle, Mike Walter, Paul Roberts.
The Pixies' wild, off-kilter sound provided a breath of fresh air in the autumn years of the clean-cut eighties. While they were at it, they also happened to change the face of modern music, infecting Boston's ever-livening rock scene with a sense of intelligence and experimentation. Investing an astounding amount of energy into their studio recordings, the Pixies also packed an amazing wallop live, a fact which is documented on PIXIES AT THE BBC, which culls some of their finest moments recorded under the quasi-live conditions of the BBC recording studios in London. In addition to the adrenaline-fueled versions of such classics as "There Goes My Gun" (shortened even further from the album version by a breakneck tempo) and a haunting "Wave Of Mutilation," PIXIES AT THE BBC throws in some other treats: opening with a chaotic rendition of the Beatles' "Wild Honey Pie," the album serves as a sort of historical document spanning four years of musical growth from one of rock's most important voices.
