In January of 1993, Frank Black disbanded The Pixies, notifying guitarist Joey Santiago via a phone call, while sending a fax to bassist Kim Deal and drummer David Lovering. At the time, The Pixies had enjoyed only moderate success in the US, while have a much larger following in Europe.

Since then, The Pixies have arguably become one of the most influential bands in the indie rock genre.

On April 13, 2004, after eleven years of hiatus, The Pixies played their first reunion show at the Fine Line Music Cafe in Minneapolis, MN. The successful show was the beginning of a series of shows that led to a national and international tour.

During this show, denizens of the city who couldn't get tickets to the sold-out show hung out in the alley to listen it. It was pretty cool.

The build-up to the reunion show and the subsequent tour is the subject of the 2006 documentary loudQUIETloud: A Film About The Pixies.
