They started out under the shadow of the Pixies, but Kim Deal's band the Breeders not only became a beloved indie-rock staple, they also broke wide into the mainstream with Last Splash, now celebrating its 20th anniversary. Josephine Wiggs walks us through the album's creation, its new live legacy, and her feelings towards that little classic known as Pod.

The Breeders

This show was much more than a mere trip down memory lane. It served to showcase that the Breeders’ new songs can clearly be counted alongside their exemplary canon of work, whilst also providing proof that their older tunes have not only stood the test of time, but have been befriended by it.
