The Breeders' LSXX a deluxe anniversary edition of Last Splash released on 4AD. Kim Deal, Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs, and Jim Macpherson played their first show together on Friday June 19, 1992, in a snooker hall behind Warrington Rugby Club, near Manchester, in the north of England. Two days later they supported Nirvana in Dublin and Belfast, and then played the Glastonbury Festival. Back in the US, after playing 27 sold-out shows that fall, they made their way to San Francisco to record the album Last Splash.

Released August 30, 1993 on 4AD, reviewers described Last Splash as ”effervescent,” “blistering,” and “incoherent.” At its center is the infectiously appealing, instantly recognizable “Cannonball,” which, propelled in part by the video directed by Kim Gordon and Spike Jonze, was voted Single of the Year by the NME. After more than two years of touring, they played their last show together on September 5th, 1994, at Lollapalooza in Los Angeles. Many of the recordings included in the set have never been released before, and for other tracks, it will be the first time they receive a worldwide release. 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.
