Here is an except from Lindsay’s article:
That the Breeders rehearse in a basement isn't just out of convenience. It's also the only option they have living in Dayton.
"We were thinking of looking for a rehearsal space that we could rent because I don't have a front-of-house PA," she explains. "But there's nothing like that here in Dayton. There's not even a band rehearsal space here. There's none of that. It's either someone's garage or basement."
Dayton lacks many things, but it is where three-quarters of the band, not to mention their lo-fi juggernaut pals Guided By Voices, call home. Jim McPherson, whose spouse helps care for Mrs. Deal, spends his days working as a carpenter.
"Jim has been working all day in Clayton, Ohio, which is a 40-minute drive away," Deal says. "After he works, he then comes over and rehearses. The key thing here is that the drummer lives in town, man! A drummer who lives in town is key. So Kelley, Jim, and I live in town, and Josephine [Wiggs, bassist] is in New York. She drives in every six weeks or so and stays for a week."
