The Breeders

The Breeders Biography (Wikipedia)

The Breeders are an American alternative rock band based in Dayton, Ohio, fronted by Kim Deal and her twin sister Kelley Deal. The band was first formed by Kim Deal and Tanya Donelly in 1989, originally intended as a side-project for Deal and Donelly while still in their full-time bands Pixies and Throwing Muses respectively; however, The Breeders would quickly become Deal's primary recording outlet. The original line-up also included bassist Josephine Wiggs of The Perfect Disaster, and drummer Britt Walford of Slint. The band has experienced a number of lineup changes over the years, with frontwoman Kim Deal being the band's sole continuous member; Kim's twin sister Kelley Deal would join in 1992, and has remained in the band ever since.

By 1992, The Breeders became Deal's full-time band. Pixies broke up the following year, followed by Donelly leaving to start her own band Belly. The Breeders debut album, 1990's Pod, though not a commercial success at the time of release, received widespread critical acclaim from music critics, as well as from Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, who cited Pod as one of his all-time favorite albums, while Stereogum ranked it #14 on their 2012 list of Steve Albini's best produced albums. After the departures of Tanya Donelly and Britt Walford, joining Kim Deal and Josephine Wiggs as new additions to the band were Kelley Deal on lead guitar and Jim Macpherson on drums, making up The Breeders best known line-up, who went on to record the band's most commercially successful album, Last Splash in 1993. The album went on to be certified platinum by the RIAA, and is best known for its hit singles "Cannonball", "Divine Hammer", "Saints", and "No Aloha".
