The coolest woman in the world just quit her day-job. A statement on Pixies’ official Facebook page earlier today announced:
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
It’s exactly two decades since Pixies broke up first time around. Back then, Francis announced the split in a radio interview, then called Joey Santiago and only informed Deal and David Lovering via fax. This time around, that statement makes it sound like the remaining three members may continue to work under the Pixies name.
