The more I see/hear Paz's work with "The Entrance Band" "...Circle", "Zwan" and her live Pixies it's so apparent AND exciting to realise that she is a real polished, classically trained musician (bass player). She adds so much . Glad they got her (for now, anyway)

There is a T-shirt that says:

Francis &
Santiago &
Lovering &
Lenchantin

That's the state of things.

From what I can tell, Paz's presence in the band is great for their chemistry and creativity. Listening to the It's a Pixies Podcast, it seems like FB is more than happy to defer a lot of musical decisions to her -- which is remarkable considering FB said in a recent interview that pre-Pixies Paz was a big fan of the band. I can't imagine being in her shoes, joining a legendary band, replacing Kim(s), and having the balls to assert myself in creative decisions and the band's direction.

Oh, and I LOVE her harmonies with Frank. The great thing about Frank-and-Kim harmonies was the dissonance -- the bad chemistry was palpable and part of what made the Pixies for me. But with Paz, it's sublime.

She is an absolute top musician to the core. The band and we are so lucky to have her. The band sounds tighter and better live now than I've ever seen them before. Really looking forward to seeing if more of her talent is used in future recordings, whether it be violin, theremin, etc...

I think that Paz gets a lot of credit for 2.0 being as awesome as it is, and for making Gigantic her own thing.

Bravo

Tried to find out which songs she plays on but she just seems to be classed as an additionally musician, Pitchfork says she adds violin and banjo. Violin I've heard she plays but not so familiar with her banjo playing?

This is my favourite Silver Jews song:

Which song did she play on Stevio?

Haven't listened to the Jews for ages. This was the first song of there's I heard.

I didn't realise Paz played with them too.

Stevio10 Posted - 05/27/2017 : 02:19:52
Was listening to the Silver Jews album Tanglewood Numbers the other day and found Paz plays on the album, some violin/banjo on some songs apparently.

Decent album but reminds me of the story of how David Berman threw a CD at Frank Black around 96 or so. I wonder if that event ever comes up in conversation on the tour bus!

If Paz doesn't become a permanent Pixies, and the boys decide to have another guest bass player accompany them, I suggest they consider Jenny Lee Lindberg of Warpaint. Excellent bass player, good singer and it doesn't hurt that she's sexy as hell.

I know it's not me that bought this up but it's from this interview. I don't think it was meant as an insult though.

Q: But now Deal has left. Is it still Pixies without her?

Santiago: Yeah itís Pixies, thatís one against three.

Q: Do you miss her presence in the band?

BF: We probably most miss her voice, a lot. I think that was one thing about her that was really consistent.




That's what's called a 'backhanded compliment'....so, yeah, an insult.

In a recent interview when Thompson was asked if he missed Deal he replied, "I'm going to miss her voice, it was the only thing that was consistent about her." Ouch.



Lol; that is ouch worthy.

If you want the Pixies to be "the 80's Pixies" forever then yes, indeed, they need a real Kim Deal impersonator. And Paz isn't, that's for sure.

As a musician Paz is head and shoulders above Deal....MUCH better bass player, and she plays a damn fine violin as well. Paz plays Deal's bass lines better than Deal ever did. True, Paz does not have Deal's voice, but I doubt anyone will notice at a live performance.

Unfortunate but true. I for one would rather she stay with the band and see what happens. She's an awesome bassist and one hell of a character (my wife fell in love with her when we saw them in Pittsburgh). She fits like a glove. She obviously brings a great energy to the newly invigorated Pixies and that will no doubt translate to the studio should they decide to go cut one with her (fingers crossed - go knock one out quick and dirty like the Catholics days - Pitch fast and throw strikes).

They can work fucking wonders with autotune and compression these days. Album-wise she can probably squeak by and live who cares - it's too loud and rocking to nitpick.



My density has popped me to you.

After all, she's only done FOUR shows so far.
bebio Posted - 01/22/2014 : 18:00:10
A while ago, I expressed some doubts about Paz fitting in well within the Pixies' live set, but from what I have seen so far, she's definitely proven me wrong, and I am relieved to say that. I fully take back what I said. I still think Kim S. was more charismatic though. And Paz had some trouble reaching KD's notes in the chorus of Bone Machine, but we're all human. Paz is the better musician here, and I guess that's what the Pixies need right now. Good luck to them, and I hope to see them when they do an East Asian tour.
