Band: THE BREEDERS
Album: LAST SPLASH – second LP
PITCHFORK wrote: ” ‘Last Splash’ is a noise-pop record in the fullest sense of both of those words: It is a symphony of feedback but the melodies holding it all together are sweet enough
to rot your teeth… ‘Last Splash’ is a tight record that’s also alive with happy accidents. Perhaps the most famous example: the bassline’s hesitant entrance on “Cannonball”– and we’re talking about one of the most iconic basslines of the 90s– was actually the product of a fortunate mistake. In a rehearsal, Wiggs played the last note of the riff flat (twice in a row) but everybody thought it sounded cool, so it became a part of the song…”
Score: 9/10 – Full review here
TURN UP THE VOLUME! says: Without a shadow of a doubt The Breeders’
best longplayer. Crackling pop songs, turbulent electricity.
Top Tracks: Cannonball / Saints / No Aloha

Twenty-five years ago – on 9 August 1993 – THE BREEDERS, with the fabulous Deal twins, released CANNONBALL, their most famous single ever. For British alt music magazines NME and Melody Maker as well as for American cultural newspaper The Village Voice it was the best single of 1993. The video was shot by ex-Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and Spike Jonze.
