loudQuietloud – A Film About The Pixies is an intimate look behind the scenes of one of indie rock’s greatest success stories.

Creative differences split them up back in 1993, but time has a way of healing even the most grievous wounds. A few phone calls and low-key rehearsals in 2003 finally culminated in the news that the reunion so many people had been waiting for was nigh. In 2004, when The Pixies finally put over a decade’s worth of reunion rumors to rest and announced that they’d be hitting the road together once again. Since then, they’ve released an outright deluge of new material, bid farewell to Kim Deal, and given the overall impression of a band reborn. Deal’s departure was a heavy blow, but she remains on good terms with the band; as this documentary shows, old issues die hard.

Directed by Matthew Galkin and Steven Cantor, loudQuietloud – A Film About the Pixies was originally released in 2006, and has been lovingly dug up by Found Tapes, a new weekly youtube show from Noisey that highlights the rarest videos that people send in.
