The Amps are an indie-rock band from Dayton, Ohio. Formed by Kim Deal in 1995 after The Breeders went on hiatus, they first began touring as "Tammy and the Amps" but it was later shortened to "The Amps." Kim Deal (born June 10, 1961) is an American musician. ... The Breeders are an American rock band, formed in 1988 as a side project for Kim Deal of The Pixies and Tanya Donelly of Throwing Muses. ...


Their album Pacer was released on Halloween of 1995. It is widely believed to consist mostly of songs intended for The Breeders' follow-up album to the platinum Last Splash. Kim Deal originally intended to play all of the instruments herself, even going so far to learn the drums (she knew guitar and bass already, having played guitar in The Breeders and bass in The Pixies), but in the end she recruited Jim Macpherson, the drummer from The Breeders, and Luis Lerma and Nate Farley, two friends from Dayton, to play on the album and tour. Pacer sold poorly, despite generally good reviews. Perhaps anticipating a hit along the lines of Last Splash, Elektra had ordered a huge first pressing, leading to the widespread availability of discounted copies of Pacer in used-record and dollar stores, even to this day. Pacer was The Amps only LP. It was released on October 31, 1995. ... This article is about the band named Pixies. ...


The Amps continued to tour until the summer of 1996, including a lucrative gig opening for the first Foo Fighters tour, when Kim called off a series of shows and festivals to reform the Breeders. Guitarist Nate Farley went on to join Guided By Voices, although everyone else was temporarily folded into a new (but short-lived) lineup of The Breeders. Guided by Voices (often abbreviated as GBV) was an extremely prolific lo-fi/indie-rock band from Dayton, Ohio. ...
