The Pixies Doolittle by Ben Sisario

The Pixies Doolittle

Part of the 33 1/3 Series


The Pixies Doolittle by Ben Sisario

The Pixies have had a career unlike any other in alternative rock, disappearing as not-quite-the-next-big-things only to become gods in absentia. Doolittle is their knotty masterpiece, the embodiment of the Pixies' abrasive, exuberant, enigmatic pop. Informed by exclusive interviews with the band, Sisario looks at the making of the album and its place in rock history, and studies its continued influence in light of the Pixies triumphant reunion.


'A brilliant series of pocket-sized books focussing on a classic album. Each one a work of real love.'
