The Breeders Vinyl, CD & tapes by The Breeders at Norman Records
The Breeders were initially a 'supergroup' formed as a vehicle to play all the songs that Kim Deal was allegedly not allowed to play in Pixies. Their initial line up also included Tanya Donnelly (Belly/Throwing Muses).
Their debut Pod was a masterclass in spindly, minimal alternative rock and was produced by Steve Albini with Slint's Britt Walford on drums. After a line-up shake-up with Donnelly replaced by Deal's sister Kelley, the band hit their high water mark with Last Splash an enormous alternative hit - most likely due to it's brilliant catchy single 'Cannonball'.
Further records appeared throughout the '90s and '00s, but with drugs and alcohol issues dampening the band's energy their real return to form didn't occur until 2018's excellent All Nerve on which the line up which recorded Last Splash reconvened on an album which playfully matches the off kilter avant rock of their earlier work. A much-loved band whose goofy, homely stage personae only partly hides their exceptional songwriting and attention to dynamics.
