The Breeders (Rolling) - 'Last Splash' 30th Anniversary Edition coming out this year.

That interview is brilliant. I have a lot of respect for Kim, such an interesting person.

Enjoyed my first listen as well. Might go for a walk in the snow and listen to it.

What a rubbish album cover
This sounds nice though on first listen

Forgot about these solo bits Kim Deal did a few years back. Will report if they’re any good. Walking with a killer is a very good song tbh

Something is definitely happening in the Breeders camp. Announced for Coachella, Kelley and Jo show up on Lydia Lunch’s podcast, Kelley is doing a reader’s questions thing in the Guardian this week. Crossing my fingers for a new record.

Listened to this. Kelley is an absolute scream, slagging Lunch for never getting to go on tour on a proper bus, accusing her of having syphilis, arguing with Jo about how Jo hates touring.

They’re going to release a Last Splash 30th anniversary edition with unreleased material. (Which seems impossible after the LSXX box set.) Doing various American festivals with an eye on European dates too.

Why the fuck they’ve never done a Pod reissue with the demos I do not know. They’re the whole record in demo format and they’re genuinely worth a listen. The version of ‘Doe’ is better than the one on the album AND there’s a version of Pixies ‘Silver’ on it.

Oh bloody hell. Ten years already. I remember the 20th anniversary Last Splash gig where they played that and Pod in its entirety too. Great gig at The Forum (I think it was).

Have had that box set since then and haven’t played it once.

I kept meanin to get it and then it disappeared from every or went to a silly price.
Maybe I’ll get the 30th anniv one :smile:

Fuck me, at least €160 on Discogs! I’d sell it but I’d need a VAT no. to register as a seller on there and frankly fuck that.

DiS cogs marketplace seems to be such a pain in the hole.
Could always eBay or aell it to a record shop?

I never knew Lydia Lunch had a podcast, definitely listening to Kim and Kelley on it :smiley:

The record shop here deffo won’t take it back off me, he was selling three or four copies of it for €55 as he couldn’t flog them at full price at the time! I got the vinyl version of Zaireeka for roughly €30 off him too.

eBay might be the answer. My father has an account he’s sold through before so I might ask him to get rid.

Ah flip yes used to see that Zaireeka set all the time.
Set a reserve on it so you don’t lose out.
I haven’t even got Last Splash on vinyl at all so if there’s a fancy pants (non eye wateringly priced) version this time I’ll be on it :smile:

Lydia is definitely an acquired taste but she has some fantastic guests on it. Have the Martin Rev episode lined up for the weekend, which could be a spiky affair.

Well the normal pressing is back in stock! I might pick it up and get rid of the box.
