To celebrate its 30th anniversary, a limited marbled green vinyl pressing of Pixies 1991 album Trompe Le Monde is being released on September 24th 2021.
Trompe Le Monde bookended a golden run of landmark records - a mini-album followed by four albums, released in quick succession – that cemented Pixies as one of the best for a generation.
Translated from French to mean “fool the world”, Trompe Le Monde showed the band restless to still push their sound forward. Recorded between Burbank, Paris and London, with producer Gil Norton again at the controls, their fourth album is arguably their most playful with Black Francis’s lyrics on UFOs and conspiracy theories keeping things weird while power pop creeps in to amplify the space rock established on predecessor Bossanova.
