This line. It might be thin, so thin that it can’t be seen by the human eye so I can only give you a representation, but it exists – believe you me. Here. Here’s a reminder. OK. Let’s get on with the chart. Reminder: to qualify, the band needs to have been great in the first […]
I have no idea if they’ll remain this good the whole time the four ladies, the two ladies, are together. It seems near unbelievable they could be. But there again, there’s Kim Deal. If you don’t get this video on any level, if you do not understand this music just one nano-second of a nano-second, if you do […]
I thanked whatever Lady you would like me to thank that I’m still blessed with some taste. I missed Hinds (I didn’t miss Hinds – I saw Hinds). But I missed Hinds. I stared blankly into blank inner space. I cheered myself for reaching a rating of 1500 on chess.com. I deleted someone from my […]
Move along. There’s nothing not for you to like here. There’s nothing you won’t have heard before, either. There’s no need for that drawn face, though. Back in the 90s, the crucial divide was between Veruca Salt and The Breeders. Which side of the line did you fall on? Did you even know there was […]
You hear stuff. And sometimes you hear stuff and it resonates. You don’t write stuff like this though. Strips the process of its magic, its allure. Adds maggots where none are asked for. I think I mean maggots. What’s the first question? Does it rock? Yes, it rocks. What’s the second question? Does it pass […]
It takes me a while to get round to listening to stuff, y’ understand? Especially when bands seem to compete to find the most anonymous name around, like they should be embarrassed about what they do. After all, it’s only music. Not a real job. This song. Well, they had me from the opening 2 seconds, […]
Time to return to the source. I’m not going to lie to you. I ain’t even going to try to resist this. Why would I? They sound like they’re having such a great time. A fraction of me thinks “yay! Tunabunny!” when I hear the euphoric rush of joy that lies behind these over-excited, highly […]
Well, last week, Everett True tackled the Dirty Jeans comp as well – and GUESS WHAT? Though his was inevitably meatier with context, our two reviews basically agree on two points – a) roughly a third of that collection is dry derivative shit, and b) there just weren’t enough chicks represented. So, guys, I’m pleased […]
And that’s The Breeders, a naked man joy-riding in a car.
By Justin Edwards The Breeders bring their LSXX World Tour to Brisbane for a show at the Tivoli to celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Last Splash album. Support from Screamfeeder.
