Cult rock band The Pixies have a thrill in store for their legions of devoted fans - they're reuniting for a one-off gig in America.

The I BLEED rockers are headlining the Coachella FESTIVAL in Indio, California, on 1 May (04) alongside contemporary favourites Radiohead and pioneering German electronic act Kraftwerk.

Although it will mark the band's first performance in 11 years, it's not yet clear whether all four original members - Frank Black, Joey Santiago, KIM DEAL and DAVID LOVERING - will play.

Last year's (03) event - which has been dubbed America's answer to Britain's legendary GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL - was headlined by the Beastie Boys and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
