    The Breeders

    I'm surprised we don't have a Breeders thread already.
    They are one of my favorite bands of all time.

    They've got the Last Splash line-up reunited and a new album called All Nerve, produced by Steve Albini. And it's fucking awesome. These songs sound like they could be Last Splash outtakes.

    Listening to this record REALLY makes me wish Kurt was still around; I could definitely imagine Nirvana sounding like this if they were still making music.

    I think people just discussed them in the Pixies thread in the past.

    One of my favorite bands. Last Splash was one of the first CD's I ever owned. Got it in my initial purchase from BMG Music Service in like 1993/1994.

    Finally seeing them live in May. Long time coming and couldn't be more excited.

    I haven't heard the new album, but "Last Splash" is a classic!

    I remember buying Last Splash on the strength of "Cannonball", just like a shit-ton of other people did in the 90s, and I didn't connect with the rest of the album. I was, like, 17 years old then and pretty musically naive. Now I own the album again and I think it's borderline brilliant. Just as good as anything the Pixies did, IMO.

    I heart Kim Deal's voice and bass tone so much. What a boss babe.

    I like the new album. I don't think All Nerve is the best thing they've ever done, but it's a lot better than Mountain Battles, which was kind of disappointing for me after Title TK. I tend to listen to Pod, Safari EP and Title TK (which not everybody likes, I guess) the most. Last Splash is undeniably a classic but I don't hear it quite as much as those three.

    I'm seeing them in April in New York, my second time (I saw them during the Last Splash anniversary tour too).

    Finally saw our lovely Deal sisters live tonight! Terminal 5 (yecchh) in NYC. Setlist was very, very similar to this one from last night in Brooklyn:


    1. The whole night felt like a big lovefest for the band from the crowd. Smiles and jokes all around. Good mix of material from all albums. Sure, they're not the tightest band, but thats the charm of it all. They get by bc of the fun factor and just that voice! Still sounds great all these years later. Happy to see such a huge crowd coming out. Although not a Pixies fan, Gigantic was a cool surprise (at least to me). GO see them if they come to your town!

    I didnít know they are touring!

    I saw them a few years ago when they toured for the anniversary of Last Splash. What a great show, very intimate and fun.

    I saw them the night before at Brooklyn Steel. I had a great time and it was just as you described. Kind of a love fest, although I thought they took a few songs to warm up. But a great show, slightly sloppy but in a charming way.

    The guy next to me grabbed the set list and let me take a pic:
