Milestones: Today is Joey Santiago’s and Kim Deal’s birthday; watch Pixies live in 1991

We’ve got a rare double milestone today, as not one but two members of the Pixies — bassist Kim Deal and guitarist Joey Santiago — celebrate their birthdays (she’s 51 and he’s 47). Since we’ve already posted full 1988 and 1989 concerts, we’ll celebrate this doubly illustrious day with this complete 29-song Trompe le Monde-era set.

The concert — posted by YouTuber cobyblack — was shot June 26, 1991, at Brixton Academy in London. Not surprisingly, the set is heavy on Trompe le Monde and Bossanova material that doesn’t make the cut anymore in the reunited band’s setlists. Watch the whole thing in the playlist above, or check out the individual clips at Slicing Up Video.

    Not that you see it here, but why does Trompe and Bossa get rated so lowly by fans. I think they are great!
