Pixies Drummer David Lovering Said It Is Impossible To Replace Kim Deal
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.09.2014



In an interview with Brooklyn Vegan, Pixies drummer David Lovering said that it would be impossible to replace Kim Deal as a bassist, although that seems to be what they've done as they've hired to bassists since. Paz Lenchantin is the current bassist for the band. Here are highlights:

On the band's rotating bassists: "When we were in the lurch when Kim Deal left it was a tough decision. Basically, no one can replace Kim Deal. It would be impossible to do. Kim Shattuck, we had actually hired her for the European tour, and that had finished a few weeks ago, and then we had worked with Paz in the past, probably around the same time we were looking at trying to figure out the bassist. Paz is just wonderful. She's gonna take over for the next portion of it. It's just what we've been doing and hopefully it'll be good."

On how the music industry has changed since the Pixes were formed: "Well, it's interesting. It's a completely different ballgame with new material now. It is the digital age, and everything is just song-by-song rather than an album. You also know that when an album is released it only has a seven - or I think it's like a three or so week shelf life on it, so that's just the way everything is going. To us it's all brand new. I gotta say we're lucky that we have management that's much smarter than us and can really handle these things. They've got it going where we have everything like a big email list, a database, we're able to put things out on EPs now with the way we're doing it. It's working fine, and I'm a bit surprised at how it's working for us. Again, it's none of my efforts. It's all management and everyone who had the greater powers to do all this, so I'm quite amazed at it."

On how the band has evolved: "I think we're always the same. We try to keep it just the way it is, because when we got back together in 2004, it was like riding a bike. Nothing had changed at all. Between us. It was all the same. The same people were playing the same way we'd playing the same songs. Now, when it came to the new material, that's a little different."
