The Breeders - Head To Toe

Here we go, something a little less Seattle.I liked the Breeders. They were a pretty cool side-project turned big time act for Kim Deal and Tanya Donelly (who was gone by the time this came out). I saw them open for Nirvana.

Anyway, this came out after their big breakthrough hit "Cannonball" but never got the same recognition. Solid single, but not as catchy as that one.

This was produced (technically "recorded with" on the notes) by J Mascis. The Breeders either were picking sides, or having a sense of humor about things (not sure which) as they covered Sebadoh's "The Freed Pig" which is Lou Barlow's musical middle finger to Mascis for kicking him out of Dinosaur Jr.

I picked this up at Main St. Records. The price tag is still on it, $2.99.
