Breeders Detail ‘Last Splash’ 20th Anniversary Box Sets, Promise Live Tracks, Demos + More
Come April 23, Breeders fans will have their choice of two versions — vinyl and CD — of ‘LSXX,’ the 20th anniversary edition of the band’s 1993 full-length ‘Last Splash.’ As was announced today by 4AD, the former features three 12-inch records and four 10-inch EPs, and both sets come with a 24-page booklet filled with previously unpublished photos of the band recording and touring behind the classic album.
What’s on those seven records and three CDs? There’s the original, non-remastered ‘Last Splash’ album; the EPs ‘Safari,’ ‘Cannonball,’ ‘Divine Hammer’ and ‘Head to Toe’; ‘Stockholm Syndrome,’ a live album recorded in Sweden in 1994; and a set of demos and BBC Radio sessions.
As was previously reported, the ‘Last Splash’-era lineup of drummer Josephine Wiggs, bassist Jim Macpherson and singer-guitarists Kim and Kelley Deal are getting together for the first time since 1994 and mounting a tour that begins March 29 at the Bell House in Brooklyn, N.Y., and takes the alt-rock heroes across North America and Europe. A full list of dates is available here, and the crazy-long ‘LSXX’ tracklist is here.
