The Breeders’ Kelley Deal is the guest on a brand-new episode of Lil BUB’s Big Show.
You think being a musician is hard? Being a magician is 50 times harder. I was doing 13-year-old teenage girls’ birthday parties. I was also involved with a really bad woman. The Pixies money was dwindling, the magic was not working, and this woman was robbing me blind. My life was the worst I could have ever imagined, then a phone call comes and it lifted me out of the depths.
New York Times: Pixies Motor On, With New Bassist
Last fall, the band booked a studio in the bucolic Welsh countryside with Gil Norton, who produced three of the Pixies’ five original studio albums. According to the remaining Pixies, Ms. Deal — who clashed with Mr. Thompson in the band’s first incarnation — was present at the start of the sessions but then abruptly announced that she could not continue. Through a spokeswoman, Ms. Deal declined to comment. (She is currently on a reunion tour with her own band, the Breeders.)
“It took us three days to mourn about it,” Mr. Santiago said of Ms. Deal’s departure, and then the men decided to continue without her.
“I hate to say it, but I’m not going to let one snafu get in the way,” he added in a recent interview after a rehearsal in Los Angeles with Mr. Lovering. “It’s time to put on the guitar. It’s time to shine. No one is going to take that away from me.”
