Embed and breakfast man: The Breeders

Can it really be true, as Wikipedia claims, that a very early version of The Breeders opened for Steppenwolf in 1977?

What was largely seen in 1988 as a kind of supergroup with a Pixie, a Pixie's twin, a Throwing Muse and one of The Perfect Disaster wasn't quite a continuation of the Deal twins' early group; the only revival was of the name. But it's still quite a thought.

Sadly, it doesn't look like the band's date at the Bronze has survived the attentions of Fox solicitors, so let's leap in with Divine Hammer and Cannonball, recorded for an MTV New Years Eve special in 1993:

I suspect to casual followers of the band, that single video might possibly embrace 'all there is to know about The Breeders'. Which could make the rest of the day something of a challenge.
