Pixies play first UK gig with new bassist Kim Shattuck at iTunes Festival
Pixies played their first UK gig with new bassist Kim Shattuck at Camden's Roundhouse last night (September 25) as part of the iTunes Festival.

After original bass player Kim Deal confirmed she was leaving the band in June, Shattuck – who has previously played with The Muffs and The Pandoras – joined the Boston band played for a bumper 28-song set which included 'Andro Queen' and 'Indie Cindy', from their new EP, 'EP1', and 'Bagboy', a free download released in June.

The band rattled through their extensive setlist without a word but smiled and acknowledged the energetic and euphoric crowd. Starting with 'Wave Of Mutilation' and finishing with an encore of 'Monkey Gone To Heaven' and 'Vamos', they played songs from every one of their studio albums as fan favourites 'Where Is My Mind?' and 'Hey' sat alongside 'Brick Is Red', Cactus' and 'River Euphrates' as well as covers of The Fall's 'Big New Prinz' and 'Head On' by The Jesus And Marcy Chain.

Pixies will play the 1,500-capacity Brixton Electric on September 27, a warm-up for larger UK shows they will play this November. They will then perform at Dublin's Olympia on November 18, before gigs at Manchester Apollo on November 21, Glasgow's Barrowland on November 22 and London's Hammersmith Apollo on November 24 and 25.
