Albums Of The Week: The Breeders | Last Splash 30th Anniversary Edition

The Deal sisters' landmark release cannonballs back onto the scene — in the form of this remastered anniversary edition expanded by a pair of long-forgotten treats.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “A defining album of the ’90s, Last Splash by The Breeders turns 30 this year. Recorded by the ‘classic’ Breeders lineup of Kim Deal, Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson, and featuring the infectiously appealing Cannonball, Last Splash immediately became an alt-rock classic, achieving platinum status in the U.S., and is one of the top 100 records of the 1990s.

To celebrate this anniversary, the album has been remastered from the original analog tapes — previously thought to be lost — a process also brought to light unreleased tracks, a discovery that will delight fans. The two forgotten tracks from the original Last Splash sessions are Go Man Go, a track Kim co-wrote with Black Francis, and Divine Mascis, a version of Divine Hammer with lead vocals provided courtesy of Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis.

For this special edition, the original, iconic sleeve art by the late visionary designer Vaughan Oliver has been gloriously reimagined by his long-time design partner Chris Bigg.”
