The Breeders came out of their TenMinuteRetirement around 1998, initially just with the Deal sisters. They returned to the studio with a new rhythm section (bassist Mando Lopez and drummer Jose Medeles) and guitarist to record ''Title TK'', released in 2002. ''TK'' shied away from the catchy accessibility of ''Splash'' and instead returned to the raw garage rock of ''Pod''. The band has since released another album and an EP with the same lineup.

'''The Breeders''' was started by Kim Deal, the girlish-voiced bassist of Music/ThePixies, as a result of frontman Black Francis' aforementioned jealousy at her EnsembleDarkhorse status and IAmTheBand tendencies. She has since remained one of the two constant members of the band.

After a break to record with their full-time bands, Deal and Donelly returned to the Breeders, this time permanently - Donelly resigned from Throwing Muses shortly thereafter, while the Pixies went on a two-year hiatus and disintegrated. A short Breeders EP followed, ''Safari''. This marked the debut of Kim's twin sister Kelley, who has remained the other constant member of the band since. By the end of the year, Donelly and Walford had left the band, the latter replaced by [=Jim MacPherson=] behind the drumset. With the new Kim-Kelley-Josephine-Jim lineup, The Breeders became a full-time band, supporting Music/{{Nirvana}} on their 1992 European tour.

At first, The Breeders were a collaboration between Deal (who switched to guitar) and Music/ThrowingMuses guitarist/vocalist Tanya Donelly, augmented by The Perfect Disaster bassist Josephine Wiggs and {{Slint}} drummer [[GenderBlenderName Britt "Oh wait, that's a guy?" Walford]]. In this incarnation, the band got signed to Creator/FourADRecords (also home of The Pixies) and recorded an album with Steve Albini. The album, ''Pod'', represented a variation on The Pixies' catchy AlternativeRock but with rawer production values, and was well-received upon its release.
