The Breeders’ Kim and Kelley Deal perform Wicked Little Town from John Cameron Mitchell’s musical, ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’. This low-key performance really shows off their synchronicity, making you wonder if it’s practice, their connection or both.
Kim Deal found “notoriety” as the bassist for the Pixies. In 1988, after a tour of Europe, Kim found herself writing new material. With nowhere for it to go, she and Throwing Muses guitarist, Tanya Donnelly decided to make a band themselves. The Breeders — a name recycled from Kim and Kelley Deal’s teenage folk band — were born. Kelley would be brought in after the Pixies’ demise, and, with Last Splash, their start began to soar.
Trivia: Kurt Cobain once remarked in Melody Maker that he wished Kim was allowed to write more songs for The Pixies.
What can we say besides, “same?”
