    A defining album of the 90s, Last Splash by The Breeders turned 30 last year.  Recorded by and featuring the infectiously appealing ‘Cannonball’, Last Splash
    immediately became an alt-rock classic, achieving platinum status in the UK and US, and is ranked in Pitchfork’s Top 100 Records of the 1990s.  Last Splash (30th Anniversary Original Analog Edition) is out now.
