The Pixies were interviewed by the Wall Street Journal last week prior to their series of NYC shows. The band was asked to comment on Pitchfork's less than glowing review of the newly released Pixies EP 1 (the 'Fork gave the EP a 1 out of 10). Black Francis revealed he hadn't read the Pitchfork review of the EP, and kind of dryly poked fun at the blog:

"It's a blog, right? It's strictly online...it's called Pitchfork, so to me that says it all. They're a critique blog and they're called Pitchfork...so they've psychologically prepared everyone."

The Pixies were also asked about the departure of Kim Deal, and they said her decision to leave the band threw them "for a loop" but they were able to recover quickly.

Watch the video interview with Black Francis, Joey Santiago, and David Lovering below. Note that the interview below is an excerpt from a larger interview that WSJ will be posting in full soon.



The Pixies play the Roundhouse in London on September 25th as part of the iTunes Festival and the full show streams live starting at 4pm ET. For more info visit the festival's website.

Video from the Pixies' 9/9 show at the El Rey in Los Angeles is posted below:
