Vintage Video: Pixies play ‘Doolittle’ tracks ‘Dead,’ ‘I Bleed’ for ‘Snub TV’ in 1989

While it’s an album hardly in need of commemoration given last year’s high-profile tour and a looming reissue, the Pixies’ beloved Doolittle — from which this site gets its name, of course — was released 21 years ago today. We pay tribute with a bit of vintage video, which finds the band performing two of the record’s best tracks, “Dead” and “I Bleed,” for “Snub TV,” an alternative-culture program that ran on U.S. and U.K. television from 1987 to 1989.
