The Pixies
The Pixies
While Pixies have been acclaimed as the most influential, pioneering band of the late 80s alt/rock movement, having blazed the trail for artists from Nirvana to Radiohead to Pearl Jam, today, a whole new generation of music fans are discovering their iconic "loudquietloud" signature sound. After five genre-defining studio albums, Pixies disbanded in 1993, and then launched their reunion tour in April 2004, playing to sell-out crowds all over the globe for seven years, a longer period of time than they were a band originally. But writing, recording and releasing new music was something that the band had been wanting to do for a long time, so they secretly booked studio time in Wales for the fall of 2012. Six days into the recording, founding bassist Kim Deal decided to leave the band; Black Francis, Joey Santiago and David Lovering made the decision to carry on, working with a variety of touring bassists, something they'd never done.
It's been about a year and a half since the band surprised everyone with "Bagboy" (June 28, 2013) and then, 10 months after, with Indie Cindy (April 29, 2014), their first new album in more than twenty years. Over that time period, the band also released three EPs, as well as 10 music videos, racking up nearly 5-million views. Since they kicked off their 2013 - 2015 global tour in September, 2013, the band has played 120 shows across four continents, and still have lots of touring ahead of them.
As the UK's DIY wrote about the new music, "They're back. They're still brilliant. God save the Pixies."

Public Access TV know that New York City can do better. That it deserves better. John PATV's frontman and main songwriter grew up in Pegram, Tennessee (population 2,093), and fell in love with the idea of the romantic ideal of this city and its music. When he got here himself, it was not-so-fresh off a $40 bus into Chinatown that took him 18 hours. He didn't know what was going on then, and he knows that there's nothing much going on now. In other words, this is someone who is going to make damn sure that he and his still very new band make things happen.

To date in the bands short existence they have played two shows in Manhattan, Public Access TV are a band who understand the power of not giving away too much, too soon. "That's important to us," John says. "A lot of bands give that up easily, but a little bit of mystery goes a long way. We are not going to be tweeting at other bands or whatever. I want PATV to seem separate from everything else. I don't want to be in any scene, or any world of bands that already exist in New York. I want to start something fresh."
