Song of the Day (A-Z): Pixies – Levitate Me

Day 12 (L) & we’re hearing some Pixies. The wonderful Levitate Me is taken from the Pixies debut EP Come On Pilgrim (now repackaged with their debut long-player, Surfer Rosa).

The eight songs on Come On Pilgrim were hand picked by 4AD label owner Ivo Watts-Russell from the seventeen tracks Pixies recorded for their early demo, the famous “Purple Tape”. The remaining nine tracks surfaced in the 2002 Pixies EP.

This version of Levitate Me is taken from their gig in 1988 at Londons Town & Country Club. Incredibly, Pixies were supporting 4AD label mates Throwing Muses. This gig was released on DVD in 2004, well worth tracking down. They’re selling quite cheap these days.
