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.
Black Francis, Joey Santiago and David Lovering
To this day he makes me laugh. One day, for no apparent reason, he took up surfing, which was a bizarre thing to do in New Jersey. Surfing wasn’t cool at that point. So we went to the beach so he could demonstrate it to me. He goes out. First wave, he gets up on it, falls off it, surfboard comes up and knocks out his front teeth. He comes in dragging the board, bleeding like he’s had his throat cut. I told him I’d take a raincheck on it.
