Alt-rock legends the Pixies have unveiled a musical “super-app” for the iPhone and Android.

Contained in the free app, free streaming of Pixies demo collection The Purple Tape, a free download of the group’s performance at Coachella 2004, and on-demand streaming of selected past shows, including an acoustic show from the Newport Folk Festival, and a Manchester show from 1988. Also promised: an in-depth tour archive including set lists, photos and videos, and Pixies news updates.

The app also has an in-built store selling digital versions of the band’s back catalog, but let’s face it: if you’re considering downloading a Pixies app then you probably already own them.
