This is the awesomest news I’ve heard all week!
It seems that Kim and Kelley Deal of The Breeders have shot a new music video featuring the St. Louis Arch Rival Roller Girls roller derby team. Click here to read about it and see a brief making-of video. I promise to post a link to the vid as soon as it’s up!
I confess that I heart the Breeders a lot. Of course, this may be an artifact of similarity breeding attraction: in high school I was nicknamed “Breeder Girl” not because of my propensity for teen pregnancy, but because at the time I was a dead ringer for Kim Deal. A friend of mine took her Breeders poster down in her room because she said she felt I was always watching her. Seriously, the picture above could have been my artsy yearbook photo.
