THE BREEDERS Safari EP (Record Store Day Black Friday 2018)
Originally released in April 1992, sandwiched between their first two albums (Pod and Last Splash), The Breeders' Safari EP cxame at a time when Kim's Pixies commitments were winding down and her new band was on the cusp of releasing a platinum-selling album. Their first record to feature Kim Deal's twin sister Kelley (and the only Breeders release with both Kelley Deal and Tanya Donnelly), the EP was recorded in two studios with the bulk coming from a session in New York, which provided an early version of "Do You Love Me Now?", "Don't Call Home" and a cover of The Who's "So Sad About Us". The title track was recorded in London by Kim, Josephine Wiggs and drummer Jon Mattock (Spiritualized/Spacemen3). This Record Store Day Black Friday release is a faithful repress of the 12" version, complete with Shinro Ohtake's 198 charcoal drawing Nairobi VIII adorning its cover.
