The Breeders: Credit to the Gestation

Stephen Dalton, New Musical Express, 7 August 1993

Attention Pixies fans! You've muddled through the, erm, muddled Frank Black album, but now here is the true heir to the Pixie throne, the real Deal. THE BREEDERS ­— featuring twin sisters Kim and Kelley Deal ­— on their new single 'Cannonball', offer the collision of metal riffs and pop sensibility sadly missed since that 'other' band's demise, but, hey, they don't like to talk about it. At least not to STEPHEN DALTON. Much.
