“We were at a little coffee shop near the studio and Kim walked in at some point and said, ‘I’m flying home tomorrow’. She quit the band. It was an awkward moment. We didn’t hug or shake hands or anything. Joey (Santiago) and I just stood up and said, ‘OK’. Then we had to get out of there, so we immediately went to a bar. I had to move from coffee to alcohol.” Pixies frontman Black Francis on how he and guitarist Joey Santiago dealt with Kim Deal’s decision to leave the band earlier this year (13).
