Joined by Deal's twin sister Kelley - with whom Kim started the band while they were still in their teens - the group expanded on the driving, polished sound of the Safari EP, surrounding its (plentiful) moments of brilliance with nearly as many unfinished ideas.
Last Splash is the second album by American indie rock band The Breeders, released on August 31, 1993. Last Splash Q&A. But on Last Splash, The Breeders' second album, Deal’s songwriting moved front and center (with some co-writing from her twin sister Kelley, who was also in the band), and what was once her side project became her main gig. It left no question about her talents, as the album sold more than Frank’s solo debut or any of the Pixies' albums.
Yet much of what makes The Breeders' second album a key album of the 90s al. ock crossover is what made it, for those with certain expectations, a disappointment or missed opportunity on its release. After the cluster-fax dissolution of the Pixies, a statement record was expected from Kim Deal – a "Now I'll show you what I can really do, bitches" moment. Critics were confused by the album's stylistical mood swings and textural fixations. What did happen, though, was that Last Splash, released through major label Elektra in the US, outsold not only Frank Black's solo debut but all of the Pixies albums as well. The new line-up Breeders, with Kim's twin sister Kelley and Jim Macpherson, were suddenly a big deal, a radio-ambivalent unit-shifter how?
