Last Splash 20th Anniversary Tour: The Breeders
Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the release of 'Last Splash', The Breeders - Kim Deal, Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs, and Jim Macpherson - have re-united as the original line-up and will perform the album in its entirety.
Released August 30th, 1993, reviewers described Last Splash as "effervescent," "blistering," and "incoherent." At its centre is the infectiously appealing, instantly recognizable "Cannonball". Propelled in part by the video directed by Kim Gordon and Spike Jonze, the song was voted Single of the Year by the NME. After more than two years of touring, they played their last show on September 5th, 1994, at Lollapalooza in Los Angeles.
In 2013 they will play together again for the first time since 1994.
Founded by bassist Kim Deal of The Pixies in the late '80s, along with Tanya Donnelly from Throwing Muses, The Breeders were signed to 4AD in 1989 and released their debut album, 'Pod'. Following Tanya's departure, the new line-up of Kim, her sister Kelley, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson played their first show together on Friday June 19th, 1992, in a snooker hall behind Warrington Rugby Club in the north of England. Two days later they supported Nirvana in Dublin and Belfast, and then played at Glastonbury. Back in the US, after playing 27 sold-out shows that fall, they made their way to San Francisco to record Last Splash.
