Recorded in 2004

Pixies have re-launched their website and to celebrate the band are giving away a recording of their set at Coachella in 2004.

Given that they are now on a fixture on the festival circuit, it's difficult to imagine a time when Pixies were regarded more as a myth than a reality. Hugely influential, the band split in the early 90s leaving a decade long period of silence.

However in 2004 rumours began to circulate about a potential reformation. Suddenly, Pixies soared back into view playing a series of incredible live shows which dipped into their frankly astounding back catalogue.

Currently re-visiting 'Doolittle' with a lengthy series of tour dates, Pixies have become a rolling exercise in alt rock nostalgia. Re-launching their website, the band have released a number of live recordings.

The latest of these is an entire set from Coachella in 2004. One of the band's biggest shows since reforming - at the time, anyway - the slot saw thousands of fans descend on the main stage for an emotional performance.

Pixies didn't let them down, proving to be every bit as vital, visceral and damaging than a decade before. Now you can re-live that moment, with a free live recording courtesy of the band's new site.
