The version of the Breeders that made the 1993 skewed-pop classic and leftfield hit Last Splash lasted for exactly one album. When Kim and Kelley Deal got back together after a follow-up to record the 2002 follow-up Title TK, the rhythm section of the famously violent L.A. hardcore band Fear had somehow replaced Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson. But now that Last Spalsh lineup is coming back together to play the album in full at the Deerhunter-curated version of the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival, which comes to Camber Sands, UK 6/21-23.
In April, the Breeders will also release a 20th-anniversary Last Splash reissue, and they’re planning on playing the album at more shows. Not that many albums deserve the whole played-in-its-entirety-on-tour thing, but Last Splash is absolutely one of them.
