The Breeders played a surprise 45-minute set at The Scala in London last night, at the first of series of shows celebrating 25 years of record label 4AD. The band were the last minute replacements for TV On The Radio, who were forced to cancel their performance due to the sudden death of singer Tunde Adebimpe's father.
The group played eight songs from throughout their career, including 'No Aloha', the 1995 classic Amps song 'Tipp City' and 'Oh!' - which featured guest backing vocalist Michael Allen. He originally sang on the studio version song, which appears on the band's 1990 debut album 'Pod'. The evening also saw the return of bassist Josephine Wiggs, who hasn't played in the band since the 1990s.
They should make a podcast out of that show. Eep.
