THE BREEDERS

The Breeders

Last Splash

    Originally released by 4AD in August 1993, ‘Last Splash’. By the time this album was released, Tanya Donelly had left the band to for Belly and Kim Deal had been joined by her sister Kelley. The album features possibly their best known song, the late 90s indie-disco classic ‘Cannonball’.

    The Breeders

    Pod

      The Breeders were formed by The Pixies Kim Deal and Throwing Muses Tanya Donelly. This was their debut album originally released by 4AD in May 1990. The album, produced by Steve Albini combines the energy and angular pop sensibilities of their other bands, bolstered by creative songwriting and clever arrangements. It features iconic Vaughan Oliver artwork.

      Title TK

        Originally released by 4AD in May 2002. The Deal sisters recruited new personnel to play several live shows in 2001 and returned to the studio with guitarist Richard Presley, bass player Mando Lopez and drummer Jose Medeles to record this third Breeders studio album with Steve Albini.

        All Nerve – the first new album from The Breeders in a decade – reunites band members Kim and Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson, the line-up behind the iconic and platinum-selling record, Last Splash.

        The quartet returned to the stage in 2013 to celebrate the album’s 20th anniversary and have been quietly working on new material since then.

        Featuring singles ‘Wait in the Car’ and title track ‘All Nerve’, recording took place at Candyland, Dayton, Kentucky, with Mike Montgomery; Electrical Audio, Chicago, with Steve Albini and Greg Norman; and with Tom Rastikis at Fernwood Studios, Dayton, Ohio. Artwork was conceived by Chris Bigg, who has worked with The Breeders since their first album, Pod.

        STAFF COMMENTS

        Barry says: It's hard to not to get tingles down the spine when hearing Kim Deal's voice. As one of the most recognisable vocals in grunge history. Deal's role in the pixies was unarguably important, but this really takes that iconic backing vocal and brings it rightfully to the forefront. This is a confident, rocking delight, as nuanced as it is heavy.

        LSXX - Last Splash: 20th Anniversary Edition

        ‘LSXX’ is available as a deluxe three CD package. Many of the recordings included in the set have never been released before, or are rare / fanclub only gems.

        Cover and individual sleeve artwork has been created by renowned British graphic designer Vaughan Oliver, who described it as “an irreverent conceptual and visual reimagining” of his original ‘Last Splash’ artwork.

        The release coincides with the Breeders’ ‘LSXX World Tour’, which marks the first time Kim Deal, Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson have performed together since 1994.

        Though ostensibly a side project of The Pixies' Kim Deal and Throwing Muses' Tanya Donelly, The Breeders' 1990 debut, "Pod", has held up as a classic of late 80s/early 90s off-kilter alternative pop, surpassing the contemporaneous work of their main bands. Though Deal would really hit the big time 3 years later with the Breeders' follow-up, "Last Splash", and Donelly would do the same with her next band, Belly, "Pod" is the band's finest, most coherent, album and perhaps the high point in both their careers. Engineered by the legendary Steve Albini.
