    Default The Breeders - Where Did It All Go Wrong?

    I thought Last Splash was only the beginning, that they would just keep getting bigger and bigger and Kim and Kelley Deal would be 2 of the most famous and beloved people in the world. Instead they fizzled quickly and the biggest thing they had going was The Pixies reunion.

    I enjoyed their set back whenever 06? They also came out with a ep that I never heard.

    So was Title TK. Really only the last one wasn't quite up to that calibre.

    My favorite song was "Safari" from their debut EP. The video was AMAZING, so many retro mood rings worn by the Deal sisters. I regret that I missed the revamped Breeders play the El Rey Theatre a half dozen years back.

    I never gave Title TK the chance it deserved. *ashamed face*

    The Breeders are an above average band, not great but far better tahn mediocre. I rank them above Clem Snide but below Black Tamborine. Above the Afghan Whigs but below Chapterhouse.

    I love the Breeders and don't think it actually ever went wrong. Less popular? Absolutely. I prefer the Albini produced, garagey Title TK to the "hit" album Last Splash. I think it's really underrated, as is the Amps album Pacer, which may as well be the Breeders. Mountain Battles is probably my least favorite, but has some moments. The title track to the Fate to Fatal ep, released after Mountain Battles, is one of my favorite Breeders songs, it's a really weird, off kilter song that's unconventional in a way that makes me really happy. I was a little underwhelmed with their set at ATP NY, and they were the size of ants on the stage when I saw them open for Nirvana, so I'm still waiting to see a great club set from them, but I'm patient.

    However, if I was forced to give an answer, the answer would definitely involve drugs and money.

    Who else remembers the 2 shows at the Palace with the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion opening?

    I also saw the Kelley Deal 6000 a bunch of times, those were really good albums and shows.

    That jarred something loose in my head, and I remembered I read that Kelley was recording something and, sure enough, a google search leads to her current project, R.Ring. They've been touring a bit, have released a 7" and a tour cd. They've got some live videos and streaming songs on their website. I'll take it (also, I might buy a scarf from her. Is that weird?).

    This is still one of my favorite Letterman performances.

    I don't think anything went wrong. Except for maybe Pod, which I feel is pretty inconsistent. Mountain Battles is great. As is Title TK.

    Things seemed to fizzle after Kelley went to rehab for being a heroin junkie, but I dunno, there are plenty of bands that survived and continued to make good music even with a junkie frontman (woman).
