Kim Deal has quit the Pixies and all her bass lines on the new album have been rerecorded by the bands new English bass player.

Looks like its full time for the Breeders now…

A statement on the band’s website reads…


s: “We are sad to say that Kim Deal has decided to leave the Pixies. We are very proud to have worked with her on and off over the last 25 years. Despite her decision to move on, we will always consider her a member of the Pixies, and her place will always be here for her. We wish her all the best.”

  1. Though I realise that Charles wrote the vast majority of their songs, Pixies without Kim is merely “The Black Francis Band”.

    Stuff ’em & their new LP – it’s bound to be a massive disappointment / blatant cash cow. Post-Pixies, Kim’s records have all been WAY better than Frank Black’s anyway.

  2. Kims engaging smile and backing vox were a massive part of the Pixies engine room. Not sure how they can carry on really? She probably quit over the new material perhaps ? Frank Black has been prolific over the years and there is plenty of waste in there, but sieve through it and i feel you find one the greatest song/word-smiths of our time. Teenager of the Year is a work of art.

  3. It looks like Kim has been asked to leave/kicked out of the band. The other 3 have been wanting to do an album since they got back but she wont entertain it. Rumours going round that they were recording an album with Kim in Wales last year but she pulled out, hence her leaving an them looking for a new bassist. Who is the new bassist and where are you getting this information from? Kim Schattuck of The Muffs has been playing with BF but I don’t think she is english.

  4. Kim left and refused to sing or play new material… Yet, these are the best tracks ever created by this legendary band by far … She is already sorry – they are unfortunately for her – a much, much better band without her.

  5. Bagboy quirky as hell. What Goes Boom deffo Pixies feel in both sound and lyrics. Indie Cindy is there or thereabouts. Another Toe in the Ocean sounds a bit more likehis solo stuff at times and Andro Queen perhaps a wee bit Grand Duchy. Pixies on tour ! Fuck it, Im there. Berlin and Manchester. Hell, 95% of there stuff was Frank anyhow :P Cant resist.
