Ali Koehler Kim Shattuck

Muffs leader Kim Shattuck was recently, unceremoniously, unapologetically dismissed from the Pixies, notified by the band’s manager. Upset leader Ali Koehler was let go as the drummer of Best Coast in 2011, also notified by band management. Both fired bandmates appeared on Jonah Ray Rodrigues’ Nerdist podcast Jonah Raydio last week and discussed their departures in frank terms. (Shattuck says Pixies’ manager was clueless about managing people and kept trying to make her nervous; Koehler says of her Best Coast experience: “I’m a punk drummer and not like a Microsoft Windows 8 drummer.”) Hear the podcast here.

Upset’s She’s Gone is out now on Don Giovanni, and a new Muffs album is expected in the Spring.

  1. Shattuck on Frank Black: “He’s clueless about managing people.”

    In other breaking news : fire burns.

  2. I may have misheard, but doesn’t Kim say that about the Pixies manager? She says of Frank: “I’m so not mad at him … He is not the problem.”

  3. Let Ali know that if she wants to come to Seattle and play in a hardcore band, there’s an open seat for her lol.

  4. Well the band Has Got To Move On…They’ll be back !!!!!!!!
