The Breeders


Call it the Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle that never quite was: Post-Pixies art-rock wrecking crew strikes cultural gold on second try then unravels into relative, willful obscurity. That the original Breeders’ lineup is anniversary touring 1993 alt-touchstone Last Splash offers long-suffering fans hope for the bombastic, slithering follow-up that never quite was, but while getting crunk to “Iris” and “Cannonball” for the first time in a dog’s age, don’t blank on the incidental awesomeness accrued during the Deal sisters’ wilderness years. For starters, “Off You,” “Overglazed,” and the soused entirety of the Amps’ Pacer.
