LIVE Download #67 – Leeds – 1989
NME recently published a list of the 100 best shows of all time. Appearing at number 26 is Pixies and Throwing Muses at Manchester International, April 29, 1988. The writer describes the show: "Their setlist was pretty much everything they'd ever recorded at an amphetamine pace, and the song "Hey," which reduced us to a blinking, shell-shocked silence."

The band toured the US and Europe for the next year, blowing minds and leaving shell-shocked silence in their path. Grab this live recording from the "Fuck or Fight" tour at Leeds Polytechnic, May 5, 1989. View the setlist and preview "Number 13 Baby" here.



PIXIES LIVE recordings are released weekly exclusively on PixiesMusic.com. Enjoy.
