Kim and Kelley Deal beamed with girlish charisma and sibling chemistry, carefully crafting an album whose diversity was outweighed only by its artistry. Last Splash proved Kim Deal had more to do with the Pixies success than anyone had previously thought, and was so tight even its B-sides are classic.” - Ryan Schreiber, Pitchfork’s Top 100 Albums of All-Time

“The Pixies' Kim Deal eclipsed her old band — if only for one album — with loud, crazy songs about summer, sex and songs — plus her twin sister Kelley on guitar. The album's sole hit, "Cannonball," remains one of the most ridiculous pop songs to ever crash the pop charts.” Rolling Stone, 100 Best Albums of the 90s

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 in the north of England, near Manchester. Two days later they supported Nirvana in Dublin and Belfast, and then played at Glastonbury. Back in the US, after playing 27 sold-out shows that fall, they made their way to San Francisco to record Last Splash.

Released August 30, 1993, reviewers described Last Splash as "effervescent," "blistering," "incoherent." At its center is the infectiously appealing, instantly recognizable "Cannonball." Propelled in part by the video directed by Kim Gordon and Spike Jonze, the song was voted Single of the Year by the NME. After more than two years of touring, they played their last show on September 5th, 1994, at Lollapalooza in Los Angeles.

In 2013 they will play together again for the first time.

In April 2013, 4AD will release LSXX, a Deluxe Anniversary Edition of Last Splash.

    Wonderful show from start to finish. Thought the band sounded amazing and they seemed to be really enjoying themselves. Was very pleased with the encores - particularly the songs from Pod. Thanks to everyone who came and made the night so much fun, before, during and after the gig. To cap things off there was a bizarre moment in the Thomas House where a very drunk woman was convinced I was Josephine Wiggs ("I've been following you guys on Bookface")! Sometimes I just love Dublin.

      Drunken stranger maybe! I know him well and you are definitely not alike! Though he does look a bit like Josephine Wiggs!!

    • Ray D.

      You're right about the drunken part. I once signed a guy's arm outside Whelan's one night!

    From Pixies' FB Page today:

    We are sad to say that Kim Deal has decided to leave the Pixies. We are very proud to have worked with her on and off over the last 25 years. Despite her decision to move on, we will always consider her a member of the Pixies, and her place will always be here for her. We wish her all the best.

    Black Francis, Joey Santiago and David Lovering

    • Jill
