It's been 30 years since the release of Surfer Rosa - a record made up of rage, religion, gore, incest and superheroes named Tony - a debut album so good that it'€™s now seen as a masterpiece. A year prior came Come on Pilgrim, an eight-track mini-album which contained cuts culled from their first ever studio session, where they famously recorded 17 tracks in just three days.

These formative records showed the Pixies to be an alien breed; four oddball outsiders from Boston blending US underground thrash rock, indie surf pop and Spanish-language flamenco with the Biblical mythology of Frances'€™s childhood. They would go on to record another masterpiece in 1989's Doolittle but it’s the gruesome glory of Surfer Rosa, and the ruined sexuality of its cover image (a topless flamenco dancer in a crumbling Mexican bar) that set a fresh blueprint for an indie rock dynamism that not only planted the seeds of grunge, but of much of the best rock music made since.

To celebrate this milestone, Pixies are unveiling of Come on Pilgrim... It'™s Surfer Rosa, the 30th anniversary edition which contains Come On Pilgrim, Surfer Rosa and Live From The Fallout Shelter, a concert-cum-session that first aired in late-1986 on WJUL in Lowell, MA.

This limited edition box set format features three LPs, each pressed on clear vinyl. Presented in a clothbound book package, the set also includes a lyric book and an art book.
