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.

I know you're a cannonball.\\

-->"Cannonball"



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.

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.

* OneHitWonder: Quick, name a song of theirs that isn't "Cannonball". Thought so.
** "Divine Hammer".

* EnforcedMethodActing: They couldn't get the right tremolo effect for Carrie Bradshaw's violin on "Mad Lucas" using effect pedals, so eventually she played her part while the Deal sisters held on to her and [[ScreenShake shook her]].

* RiverOfInsanity: "900" was inspired by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franklin's_lost_expedition Captain Sir John Franklin's Arctic expedition in 1845]].

* TheCoverChangesTheGender: Notably averted with "Lord of the Thighs".

* StartMyOwn: How the band began. Also, Donelly went on to form Belly and left The Breeders to focus on her own group.


Added DiffLines:

* TakeThat: Downplayed - Kelley sang "I Just Want To Get Along" so it wouldn't be seen as a TakeThat at [[Music/ThePixies Black Francis]].

Added DiffLines:

* NoTitle: ''Title TK'', sort of - "TK" is a journalism abbreviation for "to come", meaning content that will be added to an article later, so the album name effectively means "we haven't come up with a title yet".


Added DiffLines:

* StepUpToTheMicrophone: Josephine Wiggs sings two {{BSide}}s from the ''Cannonball'' single/EP: "900" (which she also wrote) and the already mentioned "Lord Of The Thighs" cover. Meanwhile, Kelley Deal sings lead on "I Just Want To Get Along".

* PainfulRhyme: Very consciously averted in "No Aloha", where Kim very clearly enunciates "No bye, no aloha/Gone with a rock prom'''oter'''"
