Kim Shattuck: 'I wish Pixies had fired me to my face'

Kim Shattuck: 'I wish Pixies had fired me to my face'

Ex-Pixies' Kim Shattuck has been talking about how the band fired her in an evasive, peculiar way, claiming that she wishes they'd done it to her face.

We said goodbye at the airport and the following morning the manager called me and said 'The band has made the decision to go with another bass player.' I was shocked."

When asked why she thought she had been replaced, Shattuck replied: "I get the feeling they're more introverted people than I am. Nobody really talked about deep issues, at least out loud. There was a show at the Mayan in Los Angeles where I got overly enthusiastic and jumped into the crowd, and I know they weren't thrilled about that. When I got offstage the manager told me not to do that again. I said, 'Really, for my own safety?' And he said, 'No, because the Pixies don't do that.'"

Shattuck added: "I would have preferred it if they told me face to face as a group, but they're nice people. I'm still a fan of the Pixies!"
