Radiohead/Pixies Confirmed For Coachella

As expected, organizers have officially confirmed that Radiohead and the Pixies will perform on the first day of the fifth Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, to be held May 1-2 in Indio, Calif. Pioneering German rock act Kraftwerk will also play on May 1. As first reported here, the lineup will also feature Air, Prefuse 73, the Thrills and Electric Six, plus the newly added Sahara Hotnights and the (International) Noise Conspiracy.

The Pixies will be playing their first show since abruptly disbanding in 1993. It is unknown if all four original members — guitarists Frank Black and Joey Santiago, bassist Kim Deal and drummer David Lovering — will be present, or if the show will dovetail into a tour or new recording project.

As previously reported, a Pixies DVD is in the works, featuring eight videos and a full 1988 concert, as is a newly compiled “best of” to replace the out-of-print 1997 album “Death to the Pixies.” can confirm that Black is also planning a spring release for new solo music on spinART, which has issued his last three studio albums.

Kraftwerk’s appearance will come at the end of a three-month world tour that begins Feb. 6 in Helsinki. Last year, the group released “Tour de France Soundtracks,” its first new album since 1986’s “Electric Cafe.”
