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 COMMENTSBarry 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.
FORMAT INFORMATIONLP Info: 180g black vinyl LP.
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.
