The Breeders
Kim Deal, Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs, and Jim Macpherson played their first show together on Friday June 19, 1992, in a snooker hall behind Warrington Rugby Club in the north of England, near Manchester. Two days later they supported Nirvana in Dublin and Belfast, and then played at Glastonbury. Back in the US, after playing 27 sold-out shows that fall, they made their way to San Francisco to record Last Splash.
Released August 30, 1993, on 4AD, reviewers described Last Splash as ”effervescent,” “blistering,” and “incoherent.” At its center is the infectiously appealing, instantly recognizable “Cannonball.” Propelled in part by the video directed by Kim Gordon and Spike Jonze, the song was voted Single of the Year by the NME. After more than two years on the road, they played their last show on September 5th, 1994, at Lollapalooza in Los Angeles.
In 2013 they will play together again for the first time.
