Bassists in the Pixies are quickly becoming e new generation version of the Spinal Tap drummer, as a revolving door position. The news dropped last night that their new bassist Kim Shattuck, is now been released from the band's lineup. Shattuck replaced long-time bassist and founding member Kim Deal.
"Super disappointed to learn that my time with the Pixies ended today. Amazing experience. Looking forward to focusing my attention back on the Muffs and our upcoming new album. All the best to everyone," she said in a post on Facebook.
