The Breeders performed a handful of shows live recently and just as the band promised, they debuted some new material at the shows. Watch the Breeders perform a new song titled "All Nerve," another (untitled) song written by Josephine Wiggs, plus Kim Deal's solo single, "Walking With A Killer" from the band's recent show in Hollywood below. No word on when recorded new material from the Breeders might be released, though Kim Deal recently told Rolling Stone that they're planning to record some new songs with Steve Albini once their mini-tour of North America is complete.

Peter Hook kicked off his Low Life/Brotherhood tour in the U.K. last week, which sees Hook and his band the Light performing both New Order albums in full along with other beloved (and rarely played) songs from the band's rich catalog. U.K. site Gigwise caught up with Hooky at a recent show and asked him to give fans some insight into a few classic songs from Joy Division and New Order, and he was happy to oblige.  Take a look at the video interview here.

Here's a fun way to begin Monday -- enjoy a vintage Shasta commercial featuring music by Al Jourgensen. The ad is from 1983, when Jourgensen was in his "British Al" phase (years before Jesus built his hotrod). Enjoy...

J Mascis released his solo album Tied To A Star in August and kicked off his North American tour in support of the album this week. During the Philadelphia stop, Mascis performed his cover of Mazzy Star's "Fade Into You." Copies of his 2013 studio recording of the cover are long gone (the limited edition picture disc was released in conjunction with Dinosaur Jr's purple shoe last year), so it's at least nice that Mascis is performing the cover in concert. Check out "Fade Into You" below via Bulbs of Passion.

J Mascis will be in the Detroit area October 13th at the Blind Pig in Ann Arbor. The full tour itinerary is posted below.
