CA19 Pixies – Surfer Rosa (Part 1)


It’s Remfry’s pick for the Classic Albums series and we’re back to doubles due to lockdown, so Remfry’s decided to cover alt. rock Gods Pixies. The Boston indie legends recorded Surfer Rosa in November 1987, just 11 months after Black Francis and Joey Santiago dropped out of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst to form the band. Bone Machine, River Euphrates, Gigantic and Where is my Mind? are all still beloved songs from the band’s back catalogue. Steve and Remfry dive into the making of the record and the band’s tumultuous relationship with producer Steve Albini.
