  • The Breeders: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

    11:20

    April 16, 2018 | Lars Gotrich -- After many iterations, hiatuses and returns, The Breeders will always be Kim Deal's band, with her sister Kelley at her side. They return this year to an old lineup, with all the promise (and old wounds) it brings. But you can see a renewed love and goofiness throughout this set — using a roadie as a crash cymbal, or Kim Deal's faux-exasperation at Josephine Wiggs for starting a wind-up toy just before a song.

    The same group behind the band's breakout, 1993 Last Splash — a sugar-smacked, alt-pop album that sounded like nothing else in the underground pushed to rock radio — just released All Nerve in March. Now bassist Wiggs and drummer Jim Macpherson join Kim and Kelley Deal for this Tiny Desk Concert.

    Somehow, between the four of us getting in the basement [and] playing together again, it all just felt exactly the same as the good times before everything, Kelley Deal told NPR. It was just really fun.

    The new songs don't have the same punch as Last Splash; rather, they are wizened, frazzled and, with a generous mix of crunch and dreamy scuzz, explore themes of encroaching isolation and dissatisfaction. The Breeders play two songs from All Nerve — the lysergic MetaGoth and the gorgeously strange and sweet title track — plus Off You from 2002's Title TK, an excellent album worth revisiting if you haven't listened in a while. It's a reminder that, while you can hear the raw charm of The Breeders in younger bands, no one still quite sounds like them.

    You can’t talk about The Breeders without talking about The Pixies first. The Pixies officially formed in 1986 and Kim Deal, a newlywed at the time was working in a medical lab. She knew how to play guitar, but not bass. She would answer a “wanted ad” in the Boston Phoenix newsletter that read -

    Looking for a “bassist'' into Hüsker Dü and Peter, Paul and Mary. Please – no chops.” Kim answered, even though she didn’ know how to play a bass guitar yet.

    She would join The Pixies in 1986 under the stage name “Mrs. John Murphy. Her twin sister Kelley was also asked to join , but she passed and went onto to Calfironia instead.

    Kim Deal and Charles Thompson IV, the frontman of the Pixies who also went by the name Black Francis, were both musical forces to be reckoned, but that often led to them arguing and butting heads over creative control. Deal wanted more opportunities to write songs.

    Three years later, after hitting walls with her ability to express herself within the confines of The Pixies, Kim started her own side project, the band we all know as The Breeders. Today lets talk about the history of the breeders and whatever happened to the band

    Kim had been making music with her identical twin sister Kelley, since they were kids growing up in Dayton, Ohio. The twin sisters grew up on 70’s AM radio and played together as a country duo at truckstops and bluegrass bars under the monicker the breeders. Their parents were from West Virginia, and they instilled in them a pragmatic outlook on life. Kim’s twin sister Kelley wouldn’t officially join the Breeders until 1992 because around the time of the band’s formation, the only position available was drummer and she wasn’t interested.

    The original 1989 lineup of The Breeders consisted of Tanya Donnelly from Throwing Muses, Josephine Wiggs from The Perfect Disaster and Jim MacPhearson who was a personal friend of Kim’s.The name the “breeders” is a term that gay people use to desribe straight people.

    Even though Kim was the bassist for The Pixies, she didn’t want to play the same role in The Breeders, handing off bass duties to Josephine Wiggs. In a 2017 interview with The Guardian newspaper, she said it’s because she and i quote is “a guitar player at heart.”

    The band already had an in with a label thanks to Kim’s Pixies connections,They would sign with the same label with 4AD - and went on to release their debut album “Pod” in 1990. The album featured a cover of the beatles song happiness is a warm gun, which became a minor hit on college radio. The timing was serendipitous as grunge was just on the verge of surging in popularity, and Kim even landed a personal praise from Kurt Cobain, when the Nirvana frontman listed Pod in his journal as one of the 50 albums that had the biggest influence on Nirvana’s sound. He also admired Kim’s abilities as a songwriter, saying that “Gigantic” was his favorite Pixies song.

    Deal has always committed to the “All Wave” recording philosophy, which producer Steve Albini who worked with the Breeders explained in a 2008 meant that they would use: no computers, no digital recording, no auto-tuning, or any other mainstays of contemporary production. In fact, in a 2018 interview with “The Gentlewoman” online, Deal revealed that she writes all her lyrics on paper plates, which perfectly sums up her approach to creating music.

    The band was still on the verge of commercial success when they recorded their “Safari” EP in 1992. But a line up change was also brewing. Tanya Donnelly left The Breeders to focus on her own band “Belly.”

    In 1992, the band toured with Nirvana in Europe, which was also one of drummer Jim MacPherson’s first times playing outside of Dayton. It’s rumored that he even had to ask Dave Grohl what a monitor was.

    One year later, following a disastrous tour with U2, The Pixies called it quits. Black Francis notified his fellow band members by fax, no less that the Pixies where done. Some claimed in add

  • The Breeders - When I Was A Painter + Iris February 1990

    The Breeders filmed by Snub TV in January 1990 during the recording of their debut album 'Pod', which was released on 4AD Records on 29 May 1990.

    The tracks featured are 'When I Was A Painter' (incorrectly titled 'If I Were A Painter') and 'Iris', together with a short interview with the band (but mostly Kim).

    This early line-up featured Kim Deal of the Pixies, Tanya Donelly of Throwing Muses, Josephine Wiggs of the Perfect Disaster and Britt Walford of Slint (under the pseudonym Shannon Doughton). This was prior to Kim's twin sister, Kelley, joining the band and Tanya leaving to form her own band Belly.

    This was filmed at Palladium studio in Edinburgh, Scotland during the recording of the album which was engineered/produced by Steve Albini.

    Originally broadcast on 'Snub TV' on British TV on 12 February 1990.
