Pixies, Kim Shattuck part ways

Pixies, Kim Shattuck part ways

The Muffs' Kim Shattuck was only hired by Pixies to replace the departing Kim Deal this summer but it seems that after less than six months the bassist has been let go, or at least that is what she revealed on her (where else) Facebook page.

Posting that she was "super disappointed" that her time with Pixies was over Kim also changed her 'employment status' on her page to reflect the fact that she had 'left job at Pixies'. When one sympathetic follower posted that her departure would be something of a blow to the band she responded "Their loss for sure!".

Just who will take her place is not known, although a replacement will have to be drafted in quickly as Pixies are scheduled to begin a full scale US tour on January 15th.
