Band: THE BREEDERS

Album: LAST SPLASH – second LP

PITCHFORK wrote: ” ‘Last Splash’ is a noise-pop record in the fullest sense of both of those words: It is a symphony of feedback but the melodies holding it all together are sweet enough
to rot your teeth… ‘Last Splash’ is a tight record that’s also alive with happy accidents. Perhaps the most famous example: the bassline’s hesitant entrance on “Cannonball”– and we’re talking about one of the most iconic basslines of the 90s– was actually the product of a fortunate mistake. In a rehearsal, Wiggs played the last note of the riff flat (twice in a row) but everybody thought it sounded cool, so it became a part of the song…”

Score: 9/10 – Full review here

TURN UP THE VOLUME! says: Without a shadow of a doubt The Breeders’
best longplayer. Crackling pop songs, turbulent electricity.

To Hell With Blue Mondays – Here Are… THE BREEDERS

Weekly firework to kick Blue Mondays in the ass…

There are three reasons to play THE BREEDERS on this blue Monday. One: twin sisters Kim and Kelley Deal are the coolest rock ladies ever in my book. Two: the band will tour Europe again this fall with me in the front row at their show in Antwerp as I bought a ticket for the gig last week. Three: my ears actually don’t need a specific reason to get spoilt by this brill gang. It’s sonic firework I can listen to any day of the week. Let’s roll some cannonballs…
