Singles Going Single #53: The Breeders - Head to Toe 7"
I loved The Pixies (who didn't?) but after they were put to pasture, I never felt the impetus to hop on Kim Deal's bandwagon. This single was an exception however. At the height of Guided By Voices hysteria in 1994, fellow Dayton-ite Kim Deal saw it fit to record GBV's Grand Hourep classic, "Shocker in Gloomtown" for this single. What's more, the amusing video featured the Breeders running through the tune in a garage, with the GBV lineup peering through the window. Apparently. this only ran on MTV's 120 Minutes(and now on You Tube in perpetuity). The title track is a good ol' fashioned hardcore punk hoe-down, while the flip offers yet another cover, Sebadoh'sSebadoh III chestnut, "The Freed Pig."
