Vocalist Missy Gibson, former resident of Detroit, is the nucleus of the raw and powerful sound of Breech, a band Gibson had put together after settling in Los Angeles in the summer of 1996. In fact, within a year of moving to the West Coast, she signed a publishing deal with EMI Music Publishing and has just released a new self-titled EP produced by Matt Thorne (credits: The Eels, Plastilina Mosh and Skeleton Key). The musicians in the band include Dave Eastman on bass, Joe McAlevey on accordion/keys, Dan Hughs on drums, and Mike Flanagan on guitar. Breech has established itself as “one of L.A.'s most compelling, up and coming acts” and enjoy a large following. The band performs on a regular basis and has opened for acts such as Jeff Buckley, Tracy Bonham, Weezer, The Spinanes, Graham Parker and Royal Trux. In 1995, Breech toured as a third-stage act for Lollapalooza and was featured the following February on Canada’s Much Music. From what I’ve heard of their music, Gibson takes the cold road, choosing to write about darker subject matter – which may or may not derive from personal experience – yet it tends to manifest in that way. Fables, is one of my favorite tracks. While listening, Gibson comes across [to me] as part storyteller during her more subdued vocal lines – I find myself compelled while listening. The band credits musical influences from Patti Smith, The Replacements and Rolling Stones, to the Velvet Underground and Billie Holiday. Breech is based in San Diego, California.
