WHAT: The Breeders make their debut performance at the Hollywood Bowl on Sept. 18, 2014, reuniting the lineup behind 1993’s alternative-rock classic Last Splash, and sharing the bill with headliners Neutral Milk Hotel.
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 5, 1994, at Lollapalooza in Los Angeles. In 2013 The Breeders played together again for the first time in nearly 20 years. In June they performed Last Splash live at ATP, curated by Deerhunter, at Camber Sands in the UK. 4AD released LSXX, a Deluxe Anniversary Edition of Last Splash, in April 2013.
