On a just-announced European tour, the reunited Pixies will blast through the entire Doolittle album and related B-sides.
Doolittle, released back in 1989 when I was at the Massachusetts College of Art, is a rocking blend of stop-start punk and pop that leaps from surreal burners like “Debaser” and “Tame” to biblical thrashers like “Dead” and “Gouge Away” without giving away anything in majesty. Easily the band’s most accessible album, it will form the centerpiece of the upcoming shows.
