My car has a CD player and a cassette player, but it cannot play mp3s.

So I bought one of those cassette adapters that I can plug my mp3 player into.

It's pretty cool. It sounds better than the CD player does.

Yeah, you said that already, if I remember right. Strangely enough, Nina Gordon went "softer" and the remains of Veruca Salt went "harder". The former is still okay, I sometimes like to listen to her stuff, but generally I still prefer the latter.

The more I listen to this "Resolver" album, the more I get the more or less obvious impression that it is a genuine Grunge record - at least from the content: in an angry and most times sad mood all it seems to say is: "Why the hell, Nina, did you leave me here alone?!"... I wonder how the fourth album sounds. I should buy it soon.

And I'm very curious abouthow you like it, Bernd!

Well, I have listened to it only once so far. And I have bought nine albums in the last days! Therefore it takes time till I can listen to it closer.

The new Dido album. Apart from a few songs, I'm not convinced yet, and it's all so mellow and easy listening.(well I didn't expect it to sound like PJ Harvey)

Both are brilliant! Pod was one of Kurt Cobain's favourite albums of all time, and Exile in Guyville was groundbreaking.

Hmm, probably.
Up to now I have just listened to both albums once. First impression was that they are quite "slower" than expected and that I have a slight tendency to prefer The Breeders. But that doesn't mean much. Just first listening...

Actually, I have found now the "Kurt Cobain's Top 50 Albums of all time" list. You may notice that Kim Deal is listed on rank two (with The Pixies) and on rank three (with The Breeders). So musically, she was surely one of his major influences.

Well, despite the fact that musical taste and especially lists change from time to time (or very often), I wouldn't say that he was very much influenced by the music. I don't mean that in a rude way, and of course music you like might have quite an influence on the music you make yourself.
But the first Nirvana album was published 1989...

On the other hand there's much of Sonic Youth on the POD album, but that is something one could say about most rock albums of the 90ies. Also (and especially) about Nirvana.

And POD is a very good album, absolutely!

Kim Deal was part of the Pixies, and she wrote many of their songs.

In a January 1994 Rolling Stone magazine interview, Kurt admitted that "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was a result of attempts to write songs like those of the Pixies: "I was trying to write the ultimate pop song. I was basically trying to rip off the Pixies. I have to admit it. When I heard the Pixies for the first time, I connected with that band so heavily that I should have been in that band - or at least a Pixies cover band. We used their sense of dynamics, being soft and quiet and then loud and hard."

"Surfer Rosa" by Pixies was released in 1988 already...

---

I have found also this:

Melody Maker - August 29th, 1992.

Kurt Cobain of Nirvana talks about the records that changed his life.

1. The Breeders: "Pod"

"It’s an epic that will never let you forget your ex-girlfriend."

"By that I don’t necessarily mean that the record reminds me of my last girlfriend. It seems that when the girls in The Breeders get together, they give off this air of... their ex-boyfriends. But the main reason I like them is for their songs, for the way they structure them, which is totally unique, very atmospheric. I wish Kim was allowed to write more songs for The Pixies, because ‘Gigantic’ is the best Pixies song and Kim wrote it.

"I love their attitude. ‘Doe’, the song about where a girl gives a boy head and he pats her on the head like a doe, is very funny. They’re strong women, but it’s not that obvious. They’re not militant about it at all. You can sense they love men at the same time."

2. The Pixies: "Surfer Rosa"

"A die-cast metal fossil of misplaced craft, with or without the fucking production."

"Everyone who has ever commented on "Surfer Rosa" has said, ‘Yeah, the production’s amazing’. I agree with that, but the songs are so strong that it wouldn’t have mattered if you’d listened to it through a boom-box.

"I was completely nihilistic up until about four or five years ago, when I first heard this. It changed my attitude. It made me finally admit, after being into punk rock for so many years, that I liked other styles of music as well. It made me finally admit that I’m a music lover. Their music reminded me of the music that I always wanted to do — and was doing – before I got into punk rock, eight or nine years ago. When I first started writing songs, they were a mixture of punk rock and The Beatles, but then I abandoned that and did nothing but Black Flag rip-offs.

[Note: Frank Black was the frontman of the Pixies.]

"Right around the time ‘Surfer Rosa’ came out, Sub Pop was happening and I was starting to write those sort of hard rock, Iggy/Aerosmith songs again.

"It’s obvious that when ‘Bleach’ came out ... except for that one song, ‘About A Girl’ ... that I was very set in one frame of mind. I’m really glad that at least we’ve got that one song on the album, but I had a few more like that that I could’ve put on the album, and I wish I had, because then it would’ve sounded more like ‘Nevermind’ and it wouldn’t have been such a drastic leap."

Nice quotes, very interesting. I was just referring to the POD album, of course, when I mentioned that "Bleach" was released before that one. Well, I guess we agree when I say that Cobain just knew something about good music.

Which was the next Breeders release after POD (to put it on the wishlist)?

# Last Splash (1993)
# Live in Stockholm (1995)
# Title TK (2002)
# Mountain Battles (2008)

Last Spalsh contains their two biggest hits, Cannonball and Divine Hammer, and was their best-selling album. I would recommend you to listen to Cannonball, Divine Hammer, and Saints on youtube before, as Last Splash sounds clearly different to Pod. Cannonball was the first song ever I had heard from the Breeders. The video for Cannonball was directed by Kim Gordon from Sonic Youth. I think Last Splash is a brilliant album as well, but it needed lots of time to grew in me.

The other two albums are very good as well, but Last Splash would be definitely the next pick. It does not make much sense to listen to the other albums before listening to Last Splash. Just look at the releasing years...
