Pixies Part Ways with New Bassist Kim Shattuck

Seems like the Pixies are having difficulty hanging onto female bass players named Kim. Shortly after the band announced in July that founding bassist Kim Deal had left the band, they hired The Muffs’ bassist and lead singer Kim Shattuck to fill her shoes. But on Friday, Shattuck posted her disappointing news to Facebook and Twitter, suggesting that she had been canned after just four months:

Thus far, there has been no official word from Pixies about Shattuck’s departure, although frontman Black Francis retweeted an article from Brooklyn Vegan reporting the departure. Also no word on who her replacement will be. The band have just over a month to figure it out, though; they are scheduled to launch an extensive series of two dates beginning in mid-January.
