As the Pixies kicked off their North American tour last week, Salon caught up with Black Francis for an interview. The Pixies leader discussed the music industry, social media, technology, and how Kim Shattuck scooped them on announcing her departure from the tour ("we didn't feel it was necessary to say anything...it's not like we had a big fistfight on stage or something like that.") The most interesting part of the interview was when the discussion turned to Kim Deal and the emotional connection fans have with her:

"There’s a lot of emotional attachment. I think when there is a woman involved, there is more emotion involved...people feel emotional about our band and its magical lineup, Kim Deal especially."

"Kim Deal only has to play one fucking note,” he laughs. “She walks out there puffing a cigarette and everyone goes, ‘Yeah! I wanna marry you!’ That’s the reaction, you know? I can scream my brains out, lay out all this pathos, expunge my soul in front of everybody, but they just go, ‘Yeah right, that’s a pretty good trick but where’s Kim Deal?’ I’m just saying."

Read the full interview with Black Francis over at Salon.

The Pixies are on the road playing dates in North America with touring bassist Paz Lenchantin. Check out the dates below the band's video for new single "Blue Eyed Hexe" (from EP 2) and some live footage.
