Pixes Needed To Leave 'Kim-shaped hole' In New Music

(Classic Rock) The Pixies had to decide whether to continue working on latest album Indie Cindy after bassist Kim Deal quit midway through the production. And Bagboy, the first track to be released after she'd gone, only contained vocals that imitated her style due to a creative accident, says frontman Black Francis.

He tells Rolling Stone: "We had this whole thing where Kim left in the middle of the record. That was an interesting challenge - I don't think we want that kind of challenge next time we have a sessions."

Once they'd decided to continue, they considered the option of trying to find an artist who'd perform similarly to Deal. But Francis says: "The general feeling was, even if the record has this Kim-shaped hole in it, we needed to leave the hole there. We had to do it ourselves." more on this story
