    That’s a shame. She’s very talented.

    The Pixes tho… They had the grand return, the new music… They are a festival act now. They’ll get decent cash for the use of the name on show posters, play the 50 minute set, and get paid. Too bad Kim couldn’t have been apart of that cash cow.


    Oh yeah, the PIXIES have ruined any real part of their alternative rock legacy with firing the other Kim in the band, Kim Shattuck and Kim Deals will always be a part of that original girl riot sound of the late 1980s and 1990s. You just can’t mess with good rock music anymore, you simply can’t. This band should return to their roots and still make a name for themselves in todays culture.

      Kim Deal quit, Kim Shattuck was fired. Hopefully they can get Kim Gordon or Kim Jong-un on bass now!

    Listen little girl, it’s near the hour
    Come with me and take golden shower
    Listen little slut, do as you’re told
    Come with daddy for me to pour the gold

    Golden shower, it’s getting near the hour
    For a golden shower
    I’ve got the righteous power

    All through my excrements you shall roam
    Open your mouth and taste the foam
    Bend up and smell my anal vapor
    Your face is my toilet paper

    Golden shower, I’ve got the power
    For a golden shower
    I’ve got the righteous power

    Our relationship I don’t want to spoil it
    You are my personal toilet

    Listen little girl, it’s getting near the hour
    On your face I leave a shit tower
    Shit tower, prune skin power
    Smellin’ sour, it’s the shit tower


    She must’ve had the wrong kinda fairy dust for them there pixies!
