'Anecdote-filled and definitive, Fool the World is an eyewitness account of the Pixies' tumultuous career and their subsequent reinvention of underground rock.' Q Magazine
The Pixies' initial career spanned just seven years before the pressures of the road and personality clashes tore the band apart. But in that time they became one of the pioneers of alternative rock and left a musical legacy that would inspire a generation of musicians. In 2004 the band reformed and toured the world to international acclaim, cementing their place in music history.
Told in the words of the band themselves, the studio owners, producers and engineers who worked with them, and the musicians they inspired, Fool The World is a complete journey through the life, death and rebirth of one of the most influential bands of all time.
