A favorite of mine, of sorts, for quite a while. When I first got into Pixies it was around the time I was done with highschool, ca. 1990. But I kept hearing them and then not quite knowing who they were, it took a while longer, but then I saw the movie Pump Up The Volume and got to grips with who I wanted to buy. Here Comes Your Man and all that. So yeah, Pixies, hurray.

Now, as I said, I didn't know much about them, and back in the first half of the 90s I felt too old to buy "Smash Hits", I had lost MTV (and by now of course they don't actually play music anymore) and internet was still a few years away.

One day, on some channel I see this really (to me) cool hot indie chick play, along with a photo double, or twin, (who knew?) and some other people in a really fun video. But the song (Cannonball) really struck a chord with me. So, I may have thought I now had found some music not unlike Pixies or Smashing Pumpkins. So, i went out and I bought Last Splash by the Breeders. Enjoyed it for a while, and then someone stole it from me at film college in Denmark.

Getting it again, finally, I now know who Kim Deal is. She was, and is, the one who wrote fewer, but often better songs during Pixies first half life, then was told by the *leader* "no, only my songs! I'm so much better, this is my toy!", and then left par time to form the band The Breeders with her smack head twin sister. So, this was my oppinion by the way, here's what I think. This album is the best Pixies never made.

Kim Deal, in her many manifestations (Pixies, Amps and Breeders) has made some of the greatest indie-pop tunes known. This offering contains most of them, eg cannonball, but if you're a Pixies fan i would go for 'Pod' or their newest, 'Title TK'.
'Last Splash' is their most commercial and therefore accessible album to date, but lacks the pace and general wierdness of the other two.

I admit, i am a huge pixies fan, but i was always a bit hesitant checking out the breeders albums, as I wasn't a surfer rosa-fixated kim fan. 'Pod' had its moments, in the way that Beatles experimental albums do - but with 'Last Splash', i have to say that i'm in love. This is my new favourite album. There simply isn't a weak song. Its got early 90's coast indie, its got romance, its got rock, its got surf, its got attitude.
I take back my previous indifference to Kim - I'm a convert - let the adulation flow...

After the demise of the pixies and the debut album Pod, we finally see Kim Deal really come into her own. For the Breeders she trades in her pixies bass guitar for a full blown electric, and takes on lead vocal, taking the name she and her sister kelley (who also plays guitar on the album) used as teenagers, and recruiting bassist Josephine Wiggs and drummer Jim MacPhereson the result is one of the most intriguing and promising rock albums of the decade.
Lyrically somewhat surreal but also incredibly clever, and with hard driving guitars, impeccable bass lines and consistent drum beats, every song is flawless.
From the hard hitting, fast moving and simply brilliant first single Cannonball, to the wonderfully melodic and yet guitar heavy Divine Hammer, this is an album which is eclectic and electrifying to the very last. I can't even say anything bad about the instrumentals, as they're all fabulosly crafted and far to catchy for their own good.
The Pixies were named as one of Bono's favourite rock groups, and were listed alongside Sonic Youth as one of David Bowies favourites, but nobody was prepared for the remnants to ressurect quite like this.
Kim Deal goes out to prove there's a lot more to her than being second string on the pixies, and the result, Last Splash, is a consistently thrilling and exciting rock album, showing that the Breeders flame burns hard and bright.
If loud, guitar driven, girl-led music of the alternative-rock persuasion is what you're into, I most definitely recommend this record, and even if it's not, I recommend it anyway. It's the perfect example that Kim Deal and co. are a breed apart.

Through the nineties there have been a handful of albums which stand clear of the rest; albums which helped shape the music era in their time and remain as enjoyable now as when they first came out. Last Splash is one of those albums. The sound is a mixture of fast guitars, instrumentals, love songs and of course that legendary indie anthem 'cannonball'. Considering this album is now over 6 years old, it's aged very well. It's an album you will never be bored of playing. There are in my opinion few albums which compare to Last Spalsh in terms of originality and influence on their era; Rage Against the Machine's debut being another noticable one from the the nineties.The Breeders first album 'Pod' is good, and 'The Amps' have had their moments, but for any of the members of this band, this was their finest hour.
