News and Notes
In the fall of 1993, I had a job driving credit reports to real estate companies around the Bellevue-Kirkland area, east of Seattle. The most exciting part of that miserable job was hearing the Breeders' song "Cannonball" played on the alternative radio station. I would get so excited by the wavering, siren-like guitars, that it's surprising the little green Saturn I was driving remained in one piece. Along with "Cannonball,' the upbeat "Divine Hammer," bass-heavy "Saints," and sweetly sour "Drivin' on 9" make Last Splash a high water mark in '90s power pop.
