Publisher's Summary

The Pixies have had a career unlike any other in alternative rock, disappearing as a not-quite-next-big-thing only to become gods in absentia. Doolittle is the embodiment of their abrasive, exuberant, enigmatic pop. While traveling around Oregon with Charles Thompson, chatting about surrealism and llamas, and interviewing other members of the Pixies, Ben Sisario reveals the inner workings of this knotty masterpiece.


Audible Editor Reviews

Oliver Wyman, award-winning voice actor, sonorously enlivens this important addition to the 33 1/3 series, The Pixies' Doolittle. Penned by acclaimed music critic Ben Sisario, this is a close and intimate look at the most anthemic album of this enigmatic and short-lived band. Sisario's interviews with Frank Black while on a road trip in his Cadillac provide a backdrop to anecdotes, criticism, and interviews with other members of the band. Wyman's performance is a fitting tribute to this incredibly important album.
