Kim Deal Quits Pixies

How times change. 20 years ago, Frank Black broke up the Pixies, informing the rest of his band that they were done via fax. Of course, the Pixies reassembled as a hard-touring on-and-off unit in 2004. But now Kim Deal, who recently reunited the Last Splash lineup of her post-Pixies band the Breeders, has quit… More »

Kim Deal – “Walking With A Killer” & “Dirty Hessians”

Between the Pixies and the Breeders, Kim Deal has been blowing minds for as long as anyone can remember, but she's somehow never gotten around to releasing any solo music until now.

10 Years Of ATP In Photos

When the All Tomorrow's Parties festival first launched, the idea of canonizing an iconic album with a track-for-track live performance was still a novel concept. A decade later the album-recreation bit has become another salable gimmick for non-ATP acts trading on nostalgia to line their post-prime coffers, and even ATP has on occasion conferred the… More »

Kim Deal: “You Know, Malkmus Is Being A Bit Of A Bitch…”

'90s alt-rock fight! As prematurely mentioned, we dig the new Breeders album, Mountain Battles. We also like aspects of Real Emotional Trash, though we still say it runs on (and on). Which is sorta what Kim Deal's saying about the mouth of our favorite late-night Fox News Channel guest in the new issue of TimeMore »

The Deal On The New Breeders Album

Lady Pixie and lead Breeder Kim Deal answered some reader mail for Venus Magazine, offering advice on the songwriting process ("It's hard. Sit down and write the fucking song.") and multiple queries on being a girl in the "male-dominated" music world ("I don't talk much about the subject of male domination in the music industry… More »
