THE BREEDERS Released Flamboyant Album ‘LAST SPLASH’ 25 Years Ago…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

30 August 2018


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
