Had a flick through the Pixies wiki page, and it's a bit of a mess.

I deleted some of the obvious errors ("The first three albums had been co-written with Kim Deal..."), ("Santiago's lead guitar was less noticable on 'Bossanova'...").

I still want to know if this is true:

"The first album to include a transparent media tray
was the Pixies's Surfer Rosa album."

My original Surfer/COP CD didn't have a clear tray.

Today's front page of Wikipedia links to the Breeders' 2014 tour article.

The short description says:

The September 2014 tour by the alternative rock band the Breeders included thirteen concerts in the central and western United States. The tour featured the lineup from their 1993 album Last Splash, with Josephine Wiggs, Jim Macpherson, Kim Deal, and Kelley Deal (pictured with Wiggs in 2009). Invited to open for Neutral Milk Hotel's September 18 concert at the Hollywood Bowl, they planned a tour to lead up to this show, using the opportunity to practice some recent compositions. They performed in eleven cities, including St. Louis, Denver, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, and Las Vegas. The group then played at the Hollywood Bowl concert, and finished the tour on September 20 at the Goose Island 312 Urban Block Party event in Chicago. As well as their new songs, they performed numerous selections from Last Splash and Pod (1990). Music critics commented that the performances were rousing, and that the band was as good as—or better than—in its heyday.
