"Everything had gone well, the reviews were all good and the fans were super-nice about everything," said Kim Shattuck of her recent firing from Pixies, but what does Frank Black think?

Well, it seems that Frank Black doesn't really care. He spoke with Yahoo, providing us with some classic quotes which sound even better if you read it in the voice of Tony Clifton ("big woop-dee-doo").

The big question mark is, if it was going so well, why are you changing it up again? I guess it's a fair question, but what I would say is, just because some shows went well or a recording session went well with somebody, that doesn't mean that now you guys are married and this is forever. It's not really how it works when you're a band. And it's hard to explain to people, especially if they get emotionally attached to one person...

Frankly, you don't want to explain it to anybody – it's a lot of its personal, private shit. It's like politics and sports and people's personal lives have all been smeared together in this modern world. It's a very presumptuous attitude about a lot of things. [People say] "Oh you're shifting something in your world — we demand a statement as to why.' I'm not the mayor, this isn't the bus service for a town. This is a rock band. There's been a shift in the lineup, big woop-dee-doo... as far as we're concerned it ain't that big of a deal.

It's funny that he references the ideals of being in a "rock band", yet Shattuck was told that the band didn't like her stage antics. Irony gone to heaven.
