I love The Pixies; I love Kim Deal, and the Breeders were awesome, too. I know she and Black Francis didn’t get along, and that led to the breakup of the band before they ever really hit it big.

But they seemed to bury the hatchet and even reunited for tours in the early 2000s, and continue to tour today. That’s why I was shocked to see this picture of the band in an ad for the legendary band’s appearance in Toronto. No Kim Deal? What the hell? Is Frank Black on another of his ego trips? Like The Rolling Stones without Keith Richards, is it even The Pixies without Kim Deal?

What’s that? Really? Shit, I’m so embarrassed.
