The Breeders - "Shocker in Gloomtown" video

this is soooo sweet (and vaguely related to my post below about Jim Greers book). The Breeders play GBVs "Shocker in Gloomtwon" while Bob & co peek in through the window. This is from the time when they would still all hang out together in Dayton, I think. Last year I saw the Breeders play a tremendous retrospective set as part of 4ADs 25th birthday celebrations in the lovely Blackheath Halls and they finally played this song (which previously was a staple of their live set) again. A minute and a half long and most of the audience didn't know it, I guess, and it was over before you say "what?" as Kim Deal sings it a bit faster as well, but i thought it was the sweetest thing... 90s nostalgia!
