Pixies drop Kim Shattuck

By | Published on Monday 2 December 2013


To lose one Kim is bad luck, but to lose two might be considered, yeah, whatever. Pixies have seemingly dropped The Muffs frontwoman Kim Shattuck, who stepped in this summer to play bass for the band, after founder bass playing member Kim Deal stood down in June.

We are basing this on a tweet Shattuck posted this weekend, in which she wrote: “Disappointed to learn that my time w/Pixies ended today. Amazing experience. Focusing attn on Muffs & new album. All the best to everyone”.

The rest of Pixies, who have US and Canada tour dates booked in for much of January and February, are yet to comment.
