Last Splash

30th Anniversary Original Analog Edition

4AD

Vinyl nerds rejoice! The Breeders are releasing a special 30th Anniversary edition of their seminal release Last Splash on September 22, 2023. Kim and Kelley, The Breeders, the “Cannonball” video, and this album have been discussed and celebrated often (and thoroughly) and I am elated Last Splash is receiving this level of attention. This special vinyl edition is pressed from analog recordings (thought lost and now found!) with two bonus never-released tracks. You can celebrate your Kim Deal fandom in style with this beautifully packaged recording. Will you be as “Cool as Kim Deal” enough for the Dandy Warhols to write a song about you with this slab of vinyl in your collection? There’s only one way to find out!

Entitled Last Splash (the 30th Anniversary Original Analog Edition), this special edition has been pressed on two 12” 45 rpms, giving the highest fidelity in sound reproduction from the original analog master tapes. An exclusive bonus one-sided etched 12” is included, wherein the “lost tracks” are available for your listening pleasure. “Go Man Go” is a surprising collaboration with Black Francis on writing duty but performed by The Breeders. “Divine Mascis” is a reworking of “Divine Hammer,” with vocals fittingly performed by J Mascis of contemporaries Dinosaur Jr.

Make plans to see The Breeders live over their summer/fall tour. Check dates at the website.
