iTunes Editors’ Notes

Formed as a side project for Pixies' Kim Deal and Throwing Muses' Tanya Donelly, The Breeders eventually became Deal's main group, with her twin sister Kelley joining the lineup here while Donelly moved on to form Belly. The alternative revolution was in full effect by the time Last Splash was released in 1993, and the über-catchy single "Cannonball" became an alternative hit that also made it to No. 44 on the mainstream charts. Kim wrote all the songs, with Kelley contributing to "Do You Love Me Now?" and "I Just Wanna Get Along." Guest violinist Carrie Bradley, a member of the obscure band Ed's Redeeming Qualities, likely tossed in that band's "Drivin' on 9," a nice folky change of pace from Deal's askew-pop leanings. The album was recorded in San Francisco and the Deals' hometown of Dayton, Ohio, and the sound reflects a tug of war between higher and lower fidelities. There's a childlike inventiveness to The Breeders' approach, and the Deal sisters' harmonies are so naturally idiosyncratic as to be spellbinding.

I can't WAIT to get paid this Friday so I can finally buy my favorite songs off this album. I am so pleasantly surpized to find it here at last after running so many searches on it last year..."NO ALOHA" ROCKS!!!

10 out of 10

Hands down, great album and a great band. I have mad respect for Kim Deal.

One of alternative rock's most promising — and frustrating — bands, the Breeders were conceived initially as a way for Pixies bassist Kim Deal and Throwing Muses guitarist Tanya Donelly to let out some suppressed creative energy and to take a break from being the second bananas in each of their main bands. Deal and Donelly both played guitar, leaving bass for Josephine Wiggs of Perfect Disaster. Taking their name from the group Deal led with her twin sister, Kelley, in their teens, the...
