The Pixies reunion is finally bearing fruit…at least in reissue form.
Their four and a half albums are being brought together for a compilation titled Minotaur with new packaging, artwork, and a bonus live set circa 1991. The real surprise is that they’re skipping the usually obligatory remastering, so the sound will be every bit as crisp (or murky) as it always was. Naturally, there’s a set of Limited and Deluxe editions tagging along, but as far as we’re concerned, a new set of platters is all you need.
Who knows, they might even find a reason to tour.
