Kim Deal of The Breeders: photo by Michael Ligon
ABout a month ago, one of my favourite bands of the 90's, The Breeders, came to town as part of a tour for the 20th anniversary of their album Last Splash, with sisters Kim and Kelley Deal, bassist Josephine Wiggs, drummer Jim Macpherson and multi-instrumentalist Carrie Bradley. They played Last Splash in full and then treated us to a bunch of other Breeders faves like "Safari", their cover of The Beatles "Happiness Is A Warm Gun" and their cover of fellow Dayton-ites Guided By Voices song "Head To Toe". It was a pure nostalgia trip and it was loads of fun. Exclaim has a review of the show.
