Influential rockers the PIXIES will never record any new material, because some group members are concerned about tarnishing their highly acclaimed legacy. DEBASER frontman Frank Black had tried to write new tracks for the band since they reformed for live appearances two years ago (04), but he was forced to ditch his efforts when he and bassist Kim Deal quickly realised the songs were a pale imitation of their 1980s cult classics . And now Black has acquiesced to pressure from his bandmates for good, and insists the Pixies will only ever be a live act. He says, "I wish it could go a bit further again and we could make a record. Not all of the band-members are willing to do that. "Rather than make a big deal out of it, we've agreed to just continue to play live."
