Reseña de álbum

Amazingly, the Pixies' 1987 debut EP, Come on Pilgrim, was compiled from the quickly, inexpensively made demo tape — paid for by Black Francis' dad — the band made at Boston's legendary Fort Apache studio soon after they formed. 4AD was so taken with the tape that they released eight of the songs as this mini-album. It's easy to see why they were so impressed: The Pixies' essential sound — Francis' unearthly shriek of a voice, David Lovering's propulsive drumming, Joey Santiago's insistent, prickly guitar playing, and Kim Deal's sugar-and-sandpaper vocals and steady basslines — arrives fully formed on songs like the bouncy, yet twisted, surfer-girl ode "Ed Is Dead." Influences like '80s college rock peers the Violent Femmes, the Stooges, Lou Reed, and hardcore punk crop up on songs like "I've Been Tired," the group's surreal take on sexual frustration, and "Isla de Encanta." Most importantly, the EP introduces the spooky, theatrical vision the group brought to their simple guitar-bass-drums lineup. Francis' lyrical fetishes for sex, death, and religion and his twisted sense of humor crop up on every track, from the eerie opener "Caribou," which urges listeners to "Reeeeepent!," to the final song, "Levitate Me," which borrows Christian folksinger Larry Norman's catchphrase: "Come on pilgrim, you know he loves you!" "The Holiday Song" and "Nimrod's Son" provide voyeuristic, back-to-back glimpses at incest, as well as the priceless lyric, "My sister held me close and whispered to my bleeding head/You are the son of a motherf*cker" (from "Nimrod's Son"). Gary Smith's less-is-more production allows the full, primal impact of the band's combustive sound to blast through, offering what may be the purest version of their perverse punk-pop. An electrifying debut, Come on Pilgrim remains as raw, vibrant, and engaging as the day it was recorded.

Changed my listening habits and affected my outlook

Back in 1987 I went to the Paradise Lounge on Commonwealth ave. to see the Throwing Muses. It was early and the place was about half full when this pudgy guy with a crew cut and his shirt unbuttoned started screaming over a pounding rhythym and wailing distortion. I walked right up to the front of the stage as the crowd tightened around this strange group of kids. I knew this was the kind of music I wanted to hear from then on. I too think that this sound was what alternative music should have been about. Grunge was a sell-out/ripoff that clouded the vision set forth by the Pixies.

Peerless

Just as striking and original today as the day it was released - this is one of those albums that ends up compartmentalizing your life into "before i heard it" and "after i heard it". This album manages to be fun, achingly beautiful, sophisticated, silly, and brutal/primitive all at the same time, and i've still got no idea how they pulled it off. I'm just glad they did.

Come on Pilgrim!!! Buy It!

If you call yourself a fan of "alternative" music and don't own this album, sell all of your current music, and start all over again. With this!

Combining jagged, roaring guitars and stop-start dynamics with melodic pop hooks, intertwining male-female harmonies, and evocative, cryptic lyrics, the Pixies were one of the most influential American alternative rock bands of the late '80s. They weren't accomplished musicians — Black Francis wailed and bashed out chords while Joey Santiago's lead guitar squealed out spirals of noise. But the bandmembers were inventive, rabid rock fans who turned conventions inside out, melding punk and indie...
