The Breeders - New U.S. Dates, Homemade 'Nervous Mary' Video
The Breeders : New U.S. Dates, Homemade 'Nervous Mary' Video
7th August 2018

In the middle of a busy street in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, The Breeders took a brief break from touring to shoot a homemade video for ‘Nervous Mary’, from their 2018 album, All Nerve.  Puppet versions of Kim and Kelley Deal – dressed in custom-knitted outfits made by Finnish fan and professional puppet-maker Milla Risku – go wild performing the song as their real-life counterparts sing live vocals off camera.  Wait for the final moments to discover the identity of the puppet-masters…

Earlier this year, The Breeders released All Nerve, their first album in a decade and their first in twenty five years reuniting the iconic Last Splash line-up of Kim and Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson.  It reached #2 on four Billboard charts, gave the act their first UK Top Ten album since Last Splash and garnered widespread praise from critics including the New Yorker who declared, ‘the Breeders are a model not simply for the timelessness of good art – the ways in which ingenuity boomerangs – but for what women can accomplish, regardless of whether the culture ever rises up to support them.”

All Nerve is available to order from 4AD here.
