“Cannonball” by The Breeders

21 07 2013

Here’s one of the biggest alternative rock hits of 1993, which brings back memories for me every time I hear it:

I seem to recall that this song was about the Marquis de Sade, but I can’t confirm this.

The Breeders were originally a side project of Kim Deal of the Pixies, who recruited her twin sister Kelley to play with her (even though, according to Wikipedia, she couldn’t play guitar). The Breeders have existed on and off over the years, but the lineup from this song has reformed and is touring.
