The Breeders Get Stripped Of Their Bong

The Breeders Get Stripped Of Their Bong

This item on the forthcoming album by the Breeders (it’ll be produced by Steve Albini, but alas, it’ll be Josephine Wiggs-free) reminded me: Did you know that Fuse is now bleeping the word “bong” out of reairings of “Cannonball,” a bit of snipping that I don’t think was even practiced by MTV’s always-running-scared standards and practices department back in the day? And here I thought the Cablevision-owned music-video channel was so proud of its “edgier” stance when it came to scary words about sex and drugs and killing people. (I swear there was even one time when I saw the video for “Teenagers” on the channel and the audio on the words “murder” and “bleed” got pumped up through no volume-manipulation of my own.)
