Bruce Dessau, Vox, July 1991

The Pixies are in L.A. Charles Michael Kitteridge Thompson IV is driving his dirty yellow caddy fast. With the stereo playing loud. Bruce Dessau thumbed a lift to Topanga Beach and sampled the band's new album, some hairpin bends at 65mph and the philosophy of the man they call Black Francis.
