Logically, I know that The Breeders' classic album Last Splash came out in 1993, and that 1993 was thirty years ago... but it still hurts. To help ease all of our pain and to celebrate the album's thirtieth anniversary, The Breeders are set to release an anniversary edition of Last Splash on two 45rpm vinyl records, plus a 12" disc with two lost tracks from the original sessions: "Go Man Go," which was co-written by Black Francis and "Divine Mascis," which is a version of "Divine Hammer" with lead vocals by J Mascis. We can listen to "Go Man Go" now, and it sounds like exactly what it is: A vintage Breeders track co-written by Black Francis. It sounds like something we've all heard hundreds if not thousands of times before, but that's only due to our love of The Breeders and Pixies. "Go Man Go" is a treat for fans, and we're going to cherish these new songs.
You can watch the video for "Go Man Go" below. Last Splash (30th Anniversary Edition) is due out September 22 on 4AD, and is available for pre-order here.
