Fool the World : The Oral History of a Band Called "Pixies" Paperback
by Josh Frank, Caryn Ganz
Pixies' career spanned just seven years before the pressures of the road and personality clashes tore the band apart.
But in that time they became one of the pioneers of alternative rock and left a musical legacy that would inspire generations of musicians, from Kurt Cobain and David Bowie to U2, Radiohead and Blur.
This is the story of a band called Pixies and how they turned their distinctive, warped breed of dynamic surf-punk into music legend.
Told in the words of the band themselves, the studio owners, producers and engineers who worked with them, and admirers of their music, including Bono, Courtney Love and Beck, "Fool The World" is a complete journey through the life, death and rebirth of one of the most influential bands of all time.
