Well, not really Kim Deal, of course ; but you have to admit the resemblance is extraordinary. I saw Kim with Pixies on the first gig, I think, outside the US. I - along with Gus from the Ghosts - got in on the guest list and I remember drooling over Ms. Deal as she 'straddled' the stage in a very domineering fashion indeed.

This would have been just prior to "Surfer Rosa", I think, but maybe just immediately after. The Pixies were huge in my world at that time.
