Album #20: “Last Splash” — The Breeders (1993)

220px-TheBreedersLastSplash(I’m jumping ahead here because, if all goes according to plan, I will be listening to the Breeders play their album “Last Splash” in its entirety at Hopscotch tonight.) The love child of the Pixies and Throwing Muses, the Breeders put out several albums of scrungey idiosyncratic indie rock in 1990s. Thanks to the radio break thru of the eclectic single “Cannonball”, “Last Splash” became their best selling album, but even before that they were inspiring Kurt Cobain and a whole generation of musicians. Listen to the whole thing and you’ll see why.
