|Preconceived Notions: I absolutely idolize Kim Deal (and Kim Gordon, but that wasn’t until high school). I love The Pixies to death so I was into her side projects as well. After The Pixies broke up, The Breeders proved Kim Deal didn’t need Frank Black. After The Breeders broke up because of Kelly Deal’s heroin addiction, The Amps proved Kim didn’t need Kelly to continue either.
After listening: It’s a cool album. Reminds me of Pod, which is my favorite album by The Breeders.
Favorite tracks: Tipp City, Full On Idle, Breaking the Split Screen Barrier, She’s a Girl
Kim Deal was a member of a band in the 1980’s that was way ahead of its time and paved the way for other bands that wouldn’t break out until after The Pixies had broken up around 91 or so. Kim Deal continues to be awesome. I hope she never stops making music. I hope The Pixies tour forever until one of them croaks.
