Try this disc and spin it. A band of misfits who can't decide what they want to be. Are they punks or pop stars? Are they going to sing in English or Spanish? And is it the boy's or the girl's turn to sing? Whatever the formula, Pixies made it work. Their unrestrained sound and wildest anthems have been transformed into blissful lullabies that will rock your little pixie to sleep

From this collection of seventeen songs, eight were chosen to comprise the Pixies' first album, 'Come on pilgrim.' These are the nine remaining songs and feature the original recording of 'Here comes your man, ' as well as a previously unreleased track, 'Rock a my soul.'"--Container
Surfer Rosa : Asphalt Orchestra plays Pixies by Asphalt Orchestra( )

2 editions published in 2014 and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"That influence remains as steadfast as ever among the feverish minds behind Asphalt Orchestra, the 12-piece New York-based marching band with an eclectic ear for new music and boundary-blurring arrangements. The band's unpredictable repertoire includes the music of Goran Bregovich, David Byrne, Frank Zappa, Charles Mingus, Tatsuya Yoshida, Meshuggah, Yoko Ono and more, so it's only fitting they should choose to tackle a boisterous, at times even downright ornery noise-rock classic, right? And tackle it they do. From the rambunctious opening cut "Bone Machine" to the off-kilter, otherworldly arrangement of the radio hit "Gigantic," AOPP remains true to the punkish attitude of the original while exploring the rich melodies that underpin these alt-rock classics. In fact, Pixies were so taken with the project that they invited the band to join them on tour for two popup dates in early 2014. (At the famed Capitol Theater just north of Manhattan, fans expressed their glee by singing along with Asphalt's version of "Bone Machine.") Intrepid, energetic and unconventional, AOPP touches a nerve that connects rock and new music - a daring brew lauded by the New York Times as "...quirky, funky, inventive and idiomatic.'" from Cantaloupe Music's website
