Band: The Breeders

Postby nathan. on Wed Dec 14, 2005 2:58 pm

I'm surprised there hasn't been a proper poll for the Breeders yet. It just lists the "Last Splash vs. Pod" poll.

Anyway, Not Crap. For some reason when I was a teenager, I convinced myself not to like the Breeders. Don't ask me why, because I can't remember myself. I tried listening after I was 18, though, and realized how stupid I was. I prefer the Breeders to the Pixies now (though I still love them, too).

The three albums find their way onto my player occasionly.
I enjoy them all for different reasons.

"pod" would be first, followed by "title tk".
which, although weak in places
has a handful of songs i really enjoy.

"Last Splash" is kinda' meh. The single for "cannonball" has a song called
"900" sung by Josephine Wiggs that found it's way onto my mixtapes for at 2 years in '94-'95. It is is just the bee's knees.

Not Crap.

The Breeders are fantastic. I am a Breeders completist. Last Splash encapsulates many a happy memory for me.

The songs are all so good. Limehouse, Hellbound, Doe, Cannonball, Invisible Man, Safari, I Just Wanna Get A Bong, you get the picture.

Some of the best songs were the cd-single b-sides. Their cover of "So Sad About Us" is better than The Who's original version.

The two Josephine Wiggs/John Mattock albums (one as Honey Tongue the other as The J. Wiggs Experience) are really great as well. I'll take those records w/me to the grave. Sublime.

That first Kelly Deal 6000 record is also great. I'd recommend it to anyone that likes The Breeders. Kelvis name checks Jerry Reed! What's not to love?

Title TK was one of the most pleasant surprises ever when it turned out to be awesome.

NOT CRAP.

Front row ATP 2002, with former members of Fear as the backing group for Kim and Kelly. Encored with "I Don't Care about You (Fuck You)" One of the best rock shows I've been to.

Not crap zero :WF:

Pod is my favorite recording ever also, and is actually what led me to this forum. I was just getting into recording, and looking for the "secret recipe" to the drum sound on Pod.

It's one of of the few records that I listen to that I hear something new almost every time I listen to it.

Also, I was hoping someone could confirm/deny that it's Frank Black saying "OH!" on "Happiness is a Warm Gun".

Not Crap at all.

How about some love for Tonya Donnelly? Of the the more under rated guitarists around and, I would imagine, part of the reason Pod is so great.

Kim wasn't much of a guitarist back then. I understand Tonya had a profound influence on those guitar parts.

And "the snot nosed kid from Kentucky" never sounded better.

Both Throwing Muses and Slit knew something about odd times and unconventional playing. They brought that to the party.

The other albums were good, but didn't come close to matching Pod. I listened to that record incesantly when it came out, and marveled at the production on it. It finally sank in that it's possible to hear rooms, isolated mics, and bits of verite' if something is engineered correctly.

I'll go completely over the top and say that this record was my Pet Sounds - I learned just from listening to it.

At the time I worked at a small stereo store with Mark from Archers of Loaf, who's still a pal. He would test speakers with that CD. Most people used smooth jazz or something awful like that, but Mark and I would just stand the speaker room, hands in pockets, grinning with every snare crack and enjoying every equipment rattle that had been picked up.

I didn't like it then, and still don't like it.

Nothing against "girl" bands, I would have disliked their output in any case.

I like a lot of shit a lot of you folks would disaprove of, so its a fair cop.

As my understanding of it they've never been a proper band and it shows (or ist just Kim's heroin addiction). There is some inconsistency that I find charming but at the same time it makes Title TK a rather lacklustre affair in my view.

Gosh, yeah, I'm sorry, was Kelley the one with the Heroin addiction and Kim was more into alcohol? I always get the drug habbits of those rock stars confused. I just remember an interview with one of them around the time Splash came out (and I assumed it was Kim), where she stated what a groovy thing heroin was and that it should be legal, everone should be able to enjoy it and she wrote her best songs on heroin, which I found a bit questionable.
As for Title TK
I still can't help feeling that they've ran out of ideas with that one. Otherwise they wouldn't have recycled an Amps tune without adding anything significantly new that would justify such a choice.
