No love for "Pod" with Tanya Donelly?

Sometimes when you spit into a wishing well you get what you spit for.

This would be one of those times.

How odd is it that this news would be brought to us from a site called "Slicing up eyeballs"?

/Yes, not very odd all.

While I like the Donelly-era Breeders, I would really like a Belly reunion.

Thanks subby. That period in my life was also filled with PJ Harvey and other alternative bands. Thanks for the various and nostalgiac earworms.

Weird. Just as I hit add comment, KEXP was playing "More than this" Roxy Music. Another song from the past.

I imagine the children's faces, screwed up in distaste for the fax handshake in the opening, asking "what's that noise?" -- and I laugh.

That is the superior Breeders album, in my opinion.

That would be cool. Actually saw Belly live once. They put on a good show.

Love Breeders, though Mountain Battles was a bit weak. Would kill for a Pod era live album.

Also for a new Belly and Veruca Salt albums.
 
2012-12-09 11:32:41 PM  
I saw them open for Nirvana in '93, they got booed so unmercifully Kurt had to stumble out and ask everyone to chill out. NNot a fan then, not a fan now but good for them I suppose.

Oh, and not to take away anything from this glorious occasion, but suck it for no Dimebag Darrell tribute yesterday.

I'd switch for Kim Deal.

zato_ichi: fark I am old.


Heh, I feel that way and my friends and I were a good ten years younger (at least) than everybody at the Pixies reunion show.

Great effing show, though watching folks relive their youth was a... well, *a* sign, of Things To Come for sure.

2012-12-09 11:54:33 PM  
This is good news. Last saw them for Mountain Battles, which was a pretty good album, at Metro in Chicago. Killer show. The Deals can sing their balls off and had great energy. Lot of fun. I expect more of the same.
 
2012-12-10 12:02:44 AM  
Like the Breeders, loved Belly and Throwing Muses. I really wish Cuddle Core would come back - Heavenly, Tallulah Gosh.

Meanwhile Taylor Swift keeps cranking em' out.
 
2012-12-10 12:07:50 AM  
Breeders?

I wish the LGBT crowd would lay off that slur.

Saw them do a hometown show at Hara Arena in '94 with the Afghan Whigs for openers.

Sure as hell doesn't seem like 18 years ago.

Heh, Taylor Swift would have been like 2 years old at the time.

I think she wrote a nursery rhyme about when the Breeders broke up.

I saw them open for Nirvana in 93 and they completely had the audience. "Cannonball" was big on the radio at the moment.

Half Japanese (the first band on the bill) did actually get booed.

Question: is there enough heroin in the Hindu Kush to keep the Deal sisters happy?

The Why Not Guy: Heavenly, Tallulah Gosh.


That's kind of unlikely. One of Tallulah Gosh just won Britain's most prestigious prize for the visual arts, and another is the Senior Economist in a major UK Government department.

// saw Heavenly in '92 ish at a small pub in Oxford. They were awesome.

Hey great, a cash grab nostalgia tour by watered down college alt rock targeted at Generation Sucker. See you in the pit, bro.

It's "Last Splash." No "The."

Well, the show I saw them at was in Jacksonville, FL so I wouldn't trust their taste in music. I wasn't booing however.

I did love thier music though.

I didn't know Nirvana fans were such jerks.

I think it was more about being overly excited about Nirvana. This was at the height of their popularity. But yeah it was pretty weak to boo an opening band who's actually not bad.
 
2012-12-10 07:59:12 AM  
I dunno. I think they were going for a female Pixies sound but it felt contrived and phony. I liked a few cuts from Pod and Last Splash tho. Meh there have been many worse bands.
 
2012-12-10 08:26:39 AM  
Coolies.

/I'm in a lime house
 
2012-12-10 08:31:13 AM  
I only know their song "Cannonball" but it's a great song. Back in the day the Deal sisters were so hot, but now they look like hardy women from Maine. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
 
2012-12-10 08:36:41 AM  
I remember Cannonball, but I wasn't much of a fan of their album. I heard it once back in the 90s. I'm old.

But listening to Cannonball again, the best part about this song was the first 30 seconds or so, the rest just doesn't sound as good as it used to.

"Last Splash" is nearly perfect. In the crowd, you know I'll be there.

The Breeders wish they had a quarter the talent Pixies had.

The other day, I came inside from bagging leaves and heard Belly blasting from the living room. Seems my 16 year old Daughter has been diggin through my old CDs at random and really liked that one.

So far I have dug out:
Pixies, Camper Van Beethoven, Breeders, Throwing Muses, and Juliana Hatfield. I will never see those CDs again.
