Because of the MELLO####INGTRON?
Yeah one of my favorites too- always thought that one never got enough love. Haven't listened to The Pixies in awhile but I definitely prefer The Breeders. I kinda like The Pixies' sound but not their material and Black's voice is often pretty grating as well. Deal definitely made the right decision to leave that band- benefitted her both commercially and artistically.
Here's a highlight from the recent reunion album- it's catchy! And they also cover an Amon Duul tune!
