Remember a few months ago, when Frank Black announced that a new Pixies album was in the works? Well, it’s starting to look like that’s not gonna happen anytime soon; triple j music news caught up with the man a few days ago, and asked him about the new record:
When Kingsmill caught up with Frank on the phone this week he had to ask if we’re even gonna get any new music from the Pixies.
“No, I don’t think that that Pixie’s record’s gonna happen. I mean I could be wrong I don’t know…. Just raffling the personalities all in to a recording studio is a problem you know. [RK] Still that seems to be the issue? [FB] Oh yeah, always will be with certain bands you know.”

Most fans have probably got mixed feeling over this. On one hand, it’s too bad we’re not going to get to hear any new material from one of the best bands ever, but at the same time, it’s a relief to know that they’re not going to ruin their legacy with something like the The Weirdness. Plus, you’ve gotta admit that Kim Deal and Frank Black getting along was just wrong to begin with.
