The Amps - Pacer (4AD)


RELEASED: 10th August 2018
Vinyl LP

Format:  Vinyl LP
Cat No:  CAD 5016

Released in the immediate aftermath of the runaway success of The Breeders’  platinum-selling second album ‘Last Splash’ and the Pixies calling it a day the
first time round, The Amps are an important part of the Kim Deal canon.

First intended as a solo project, The Amps instead grew into a fully-fledged band with Jim MacPherson from The Breeders joining on drums and Dayton, OH
musicians Luis Lerma and Nate Farley on bass and guitar respectively. Releasing just one album, ‘Pacer’, in 1995 and after a whirlwind of touring with the likes
of Foo Fighters, Guided By Voices and Sonic Youth, Kim returned them to the shelf, leaving behind one of her most intriguing chapters.

With this first vinyl repress on 4AD, ‘Pacer’ is finally getting the reappraisal it richly deserves.
