The Breeders - All Nerve

Richard Ayoade, the BAFTA-nominated film director (Submarine, The Double), actor (IT Crowd, Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace), TV presenter (Travel Man, The Crystal Maze) and comedian, has been a long-time fan of The Breeders.

As a young teen in 1990, Ayoade recalls travelling from his Ipswich home to London to buy the band’s first album Pod.  Today, nearly 30 years after making that journey, he has teamed up with his favourite band to create an eerie short story for their latest single, ‘Space Woman’.

Described by The Breeders’ Kim Deal as “a sci-fi thriller with the soul of [deceased fiction writer] Harlan Ellison,” Ayoade’s visual treatment depicts Deal in a spacesuit navigating a woodland landscape.  Shot on 35mm film and in one seamless take, she encounters fellow Breeders members Jim Macpherson, Josephine Wiggs and Kelley Deal in various states of trauma.

New album, ‘All Nerve’, featuring ‘Spacewoman’ is out now:

‘Space Woman’ is taken from The Breeder’s latest album All Nerve, their first album in a decade and their first in 25 years reuniting the iconic Last Splashline-up of the aforementioned Deal sisters, Wiggs and Macpherson. Also featuring the singles ‘Wait In The Car’, ‘All Nerve’ and ‘Nervous Mary’, It’s the band’s fifth studio album
