Product Description

Product Description

THE BREEDERS Last Splash (1993 UK 14-track CD album including New Year Cannonball & Saints picture sleeve CAD3014CD)

Amazon.co.uk

For Last Splash, her second full-length Breeders album, Kim Deal jettisoned Tanya Donelly, brought in her sister Kelley as lead guitarist (despite the fact that she could barely play when she joined) and came up with a disc full of fun, toothsome rock, not least of which was the mammoth summer-of-1993 hit "Cannonball", a celebration of mosh-pit bounce and purred innuendo. Deal's voice is coy, but the band's full of dreamy energy, rocking like her old band the Pixies without their abrasion, tomboyish rather than macho. Not everything on Last Splash is fully fleshed-out as a song, but even the more fragmentary pieces--the embittered punk mutter of "I Just Wanna Get Along", the horny daydream "Divine Hammer"--speed the album's flow. --Douglas Wolk

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...

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.

'Last Splash' is undoubtedly one the classic guitar albums of the early nineties, despite the fact that Ive never thought that Kim Deal had the songwriting ability of her ex-sparring partner Frank Black. At the time of its release, 'Last Splash' recieved more plaudits than Frank Black's solo outings. This can be put down to the ex-Pixies' frontman's eccentricity (which has seen him go further and further back in time with each album), whereas The Breeders' second album was much more in tune with what the music press were expecting at the time- grungy guitars, breezy vocals, and a kind of hipster coolness that pervades the record.

Furthermore, this album is a sonic treat- its exactly what you'd expect a guitar record to sound like (unless, of course, you subscribe to the Velvet Underground sound- a narrow tunnel of weedy fuzz). Instead, massive buzz-saw guitars and enormous, splashy drum-fills abound, but at the the same time there's a pleasingly rough-and-ready feel to the record, particularly on the instrumental 'Flipside' which has a lovely 'live' sound to it.

Indeed, it's the beefy sound which is the album's main asset, which bolsters the otherwise pretty tuneless opener "New Year." Ive never thought that the stop-start chugging of "Cannonball" was that great either, but then the album really picks up with the gorgeous "Invisible Man" and "No Aloha," which perfectly marry Kim's lovely voice with slow-burning, coruscating guitars. "Do You Love Me Now?" is another pop gem, and I'm also a great fan of "Roi," an experimental number of layered guitar noise which I think works beautifully.

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.
