Watch the Breeders Reunite With Founding Member Tanya Donelly
Throwing Muses/Belly singer joins former band onstage in Boston
Now that’s what we call a Breeders reunion. The Breeders’ current tour with the lineup from 1993’s indie-rock touchstone Last Splash was always different from most throwback gigs, because the original lineup, on 1990’s likewise-classic Pod, also included singer-guitarist Tanya Donelly. Well, Throwing Muses’ co-founder, who left after 1992’s Safari EP to focus on her other band Belly, rejoined the Breeders last night for their Boston homecoming show, as Slicing Up Eyeballs points out. The Donelly-boosted Breeders performed Pod Beatles cover “Happiness Is a Warm Gun” (above) and Last Splash’s “Do You Love Me Now?” (below, plus alternate looks at “Happiness”). Happiness is Last Splash’s 20th-anniversary LSXX reissue coming out on May 14 — and Donelly reuniting with the Breeders last night.
