Surfer Rosa is a record made up of rage, religion, gore, incest and superheroes named Tony – a debut album so good that it’s now widely lauded as a masterpiece.  Produced by Steve Albini, it was recorded in December 1987 at Q Division in Boston, MA and includes early Pixies classics such as 'Bone Machine', 'Gigantic',  'Vamos' and 'Where Is My Mind?'. 

The Pixies –  four oddball outsiders from Boston blending US underground thrash rock, indie surf pop and Spanish-language Flamenco with the Biblical mythology of Black Francis’s childhood – would go on to record another classic with 1989’s Doolittle, but it’s the gruesome glory of Surfer Rosa that set a fresh blueprint for an indie rock dynamism that not only planted the seeds of grunge (Kurt Cobain would admit that he was trying to imitate the record while writing Nevermind) but of much of the best rock music made since.
