A curiosity on how the "bassist wanted" ad grabbed the attention of Kim Deal

After the Pixies split up, it definitely did not mean end of the road in music for some of the band members. Black Francis -- now calling himself Frank Black -- goes on a solo career, and assembled a new band called Frank Black & the Catholics; Kim Deal formed the Breeders, along with her sister Kelley Deal; Joey Santiago formed a band named the Martinis, but its only recorded registry is the song Free, on the Empire Records movie soundtrack.
