    Default Kim Deal (Pixies/Breeders) on VH Tour

    The latest issue of Spin (April 2008/REM on cover) has an interview with Kim Deal of the Pixies and the Breeders. They ask her about the Pixies reunion tour and if she'd want to do it again and here's her response...

    "Good God, no. Me and Kelley [her sister and bandmate in Breeders] and Todd [her sister's husband] went to Indianapolis to see Van Halen. That was awesome. They came out, and I just wanted to cry with the excitement. So what I'm saying is that we're not as big as Van Halen, of course, but it was so exciting to see them - and somebody was happy to see us play a particular set of songs that they know."

    That was about the most interesting info in the latest "Spin". I was about to toss it but kept it a bit longer so that I could show fellow 80's kids that article!

    So what exactly was she saying with that last part?
    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

    I think she was saying it was so exicting for her to see Van Halen so she sorta knows what it must've felt like for a Pixies fan to see them reunite but she'd rather not do it again.

    Kim Deal played bass in the Pixies, a band that inspired Nirvana. She and her sister formed the Breeders (lesbian slang for straight chicks) and had a minor MTV hit with the tune "Cannonball" sometime in the nineties. Both she and her sister left the rails with heroin addictions. A couple of years ago the Pixies reformed, playing college campuses on a surprisingly well received tour. Using this momentum, Deal regrouped the Breeders hoping lightning would strike twice. So far, it has not.

    the breeders new record release party at a VFW hall says it all.

    Now comes my favorite part of the show. It's my favorite part of the whole evening. We've been on tour since March and I have no better time anytime then right now because I get to go sit down, have myself a nice cold one and listen to the greatest rock n'roll guitar player in the world. Mr. Eddie Van Halen. - Sammy Hagar

    She was saying that her band, who WAS a pretty fair band.......can't hold DLR Van Halen's jock strap.

    Fairly straight forward if ye asks me.

    And dead on.
