The Pixies: Brixton Academy, London
Nick Hasted, Independent, The, 3 June 2004
EXACTLY HOW much this, the first UK night of the Pixies' reunion tour, means to the crowd is shown when they walk on stage to the loudest, most relieved cheer I have ever heard: a moment of mass catharsis that is emotionally devastating. Whether any mere flesh and blood band can live up to the memories that cheer represents is debatable.
