Interview: Black Francis Conceived His First Son at Coachella (And Other Stories Regarding The Pixies)
There are many people claim to be conceived at Woodstock in 1969. Not to be outdone by the feckless hippies, Black Francis says that he conceived his first son at his first Coachella ten years ago. Cherish the thought.
Of course there’s the five=ton gorilla in the room: how to approach the issue that beloved bass player Kim Deal recently left the band, marking their first lineup change, ever.
Pixies surprised fans this morning (September 3) with the release of EP-1, four brand new songs from the band as they continue to move forward after original bassist Kim Deal abruptly left the fold back in June of this year.
Ever wonder what a Pixies song would sound like if you just isolated Frank Black’s vocals? Well, now thanks to the Soundcloud account IsolatedVocals you can finally hear for yourself.
Founding Pixies bassist Kim Deal has left the band. Remaining members Black Francis, Joey Santiago and David Lovering officially announced her departure on Friday (June 14) through the Pixies Facebook page.
