Being released this November as part of Record Store Day’s sister
Black Friday event is a faithful repress of the 12” version of The
Breeders’ Safari EP, complete with Shinro Ohtake’s 1983 charcoal drawing
Nairobi VIII adorning its cover. Originally released in April 1992,
sandwiched between their first two albums (Pod and Last Splash), The Breeders’ Safari EP
came at a time when Kim’s Pixies commitments were winding down and her
new band were on the cusp of releasing a platinum-selling album.
Their first record to feature Kim Deal’s twin Kelley, the EP was
recorded in two studios with the bulk coming from a session in New York,
which provided an early version of Do You Love Me Now?, Don’t Call Home and a cover of The Who’s So Sad About Us. The title track, Safari, was recorded separately in London by Kim, Josephine Wiggs and drummer Jon Mattock (Spacemen 3 / Spiritualized).
