Pixies fans rejoice. Currently in works is a coffee table book documenting the Boston-based alternative rock band Pixies. Perhaps one of the most influential bands in indie rock history, Pixies formed in Boston in 1986 and disbanded in 1993. Pixies members went on to focus on their separate careers until reuniting in 2004.
The book intends to focus on the group’s history from 1993 to their present career. Taking up to the popular option of crowdsourcing project funding, the book Pixies: A Visual History, is currently raising money via Kickstarter.
The project is fronted by the band’s site co-founder and perhaps most avid fan, Sean T. Rayburn. While Rayburn created PixiesMusic.com as a fansite, the website eventually grew to become Pixies official site. Rayburn worked throughout the years to relay information, pictures, and news to other Pixies fans through the internet. Now as he is working closely with the band, Rayburn decided to compose a book containing rare images documenting the band’s post 1993 career.
The last day to fund Pixies: A Visual History is June 6th. As of May 30th, Thursday night, the project has reached $138,000 of its goal of $150,000, leaving about $12,000 to go. Donations over $75 include a hardcover copy of the book and getting “their name printed in the end papers of the book.” If the book gets published, it is expected to be shipped out in the fall.
