Alt rockers The Breeders play Grand Central
For alt-rock fans of a certain age, it might seem like only yesterday that The Breeders released its groundbreaking 1993 album Last Splash, featuring the funky, whimsical hit Cannonball. Well, they’re not the only ones: One of the band members shares that sentiment. “It feels like no time has passed at all,” says guitarist Kelley Deal, who along with her twin sister Kim (she’s also a member of The Pixies) will front The Breeders Wednesday night at Grand Central in Miami for the 20th anniversary of the release of the album.
“Not a month has passed — that’s how it feels. And honestly, is that a good thing? Is that a bad thing? A case could be made either way, I’m sure, about how little we have all grown [laughs], or maybe how we grew and changed and came back full-circle. I’d like to think it’s the latter.” Deal says that the last time she performed in Miami was when The Breeders opened for Nirvana in the early ’90s, an era of monumental musical changes, with the advent of grunge and indie-rock.
But Deal says the band members were largely oblivious to its significance.
“It’s not until time has gone by, and it develops importance culturally to other people that you look back and go, ‘Wow, that was like the ’60s or something,’ like a time period that meant a lot to a lot of people.”
