The Breeders Meet Buffy

Band will appear on show in November

After spending months covering the theme to Buffy the Vampire
Slayer
during their live shows, the Breeders will join Sarah
Michelle Gellar and the rest of the cast for an episode of the UPN
teen slasher show this November.

“I like Buffy,” says frontwoman Kim Deal. “They have
all these bands on at the Bronze [Buffy’s local hang out] so me and
[sister/guitarist] Kelley were thinking, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool to be
one of those bands? Maybe we could be playing this song and someone
could get bit or something.'”

The Deal sisters will get their wish in an episode entitled
“Him.” The show’s producers contacted the band after one of its
Southern California gigs this summer. “There was a couple of people
that work on the show that came out and saw us play ’cause we do
the cover,” Kim says. “Seth Green [a sometime Buffy cast
member] has a little crush on Kelly. He came to our last show. He’s
cute.”

The Breeders are also using their time in Los Angeles to work on
the follow-up to their sophomore effort Title TK (2002).
According to Kim, they have a bunch of new songs written, including
“Climbing the Sun” and “Aderley (No Time in the Meter).” The band
plans to record them without a producer. “We don’t really work with
producers,” Kim says. “We work with people who engineer well. We
usually queue to tape and we don’t do Pro Tools, so we don’t need
some guy to reinvent the kick drum.”
