4AD announce The Breeders’ ‘Last Splash’ 20th anniversary CD and vinyl sets.
‘LSXX’ will be available as a deluxe three CD package and seven disc vinyl box set. Many of the recordings included in the set have never been released before, or are rare / fanclub only gems.
Cover and individual sleeve artwork has been created by renowned British graphic designer Vaughan Oliver, who described it as “an irreverent conceptual and visual re- imagining” of his original ‘Last Splash’ artwork.
The release coincides with the Breeders’ ‘LSXX World Tour’, which marks the first time Kim Deal, Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson have performed together since 1994.
The vinyl box set includes (the CD and vinyl formats include the same tracklisting):
‘Last Splash’ on LP .
A live concert album, ‘Stockholm Syndrome’, recorded in Sweden in 1994, during the band’s last European tour - seven tracks from this recording originally appeared on a fanclub only CD, nine additional unreleased tracks from the concert are included here.
