Bassist Leaves Pixies
2013-11-30 by River Tam | 20 Comments

Kim Shattuck, the live bassist of the Pixies, is no longer part of the band. No reason for the departure was
given, though a tweet from Shattuck earlier today suggests that it was not her decision to go. Shattuck had been
performing with the band since the departure of their original bassist earlier this year.

She figured out it wasn't her bass skills so much as she was named Kim.

shattuck on how they kicked her out of the band

"during a show at Los Angeles’ Mayan Theater, she was chided by the band's manager after she excitedly jumped into the crowd. Shattuck says the manager told her, “The Pixies don’t do that.”

Still, Shattuck says that, while she would have rather been told she was being fired by members of the group, rather than by the manager—and she also would have rather been told face to face, instead of over the phone—she’s still a fan of the band and thinks they’re nice people"

i saw the documentary on their reunion and this is totally in line with that. bunch of passive aggressive dickheads
