Never thought this day would come readers but last week the Pixies announced that long time bassist, Kim Deal, had officially left the Pixies.
The band released this statement:
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.
Although they have not released anything in the last 20 years and only got back together to do a few tours and get a bit of dosh the news still cut us here at DDHDBs towers like a rusty knife.
Hopefully Kim will be using her time to record more Breeders / solo albums.
Let’s remember Kim’s best moment in the Pixies.
