The Breeders have unveiled a previously unreleased version of their Last Splash track ‘Divine Hammer’, which features Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis on vocals. Retitled ‘Divine Mascis’, it will appear on the 30th anniversary reissue of the LP, which is out Friday (September 22) and also includes the previously unearthed track ‘Go Man Go’. Listen to ‘Divine Mascis’ below.
“At the time, J Mascis was a guitar god… we sent him the tape to put guitar on, so when it came back and he’s got rid of our voices and just put his vocal on, we were like, ‘Wha?!’ But it’s really cute,” Kelley Deal told Uncut. “There’s a freshness to it, and it’s just so weird. I like his voice and the idiosyncratic way he sings and delivers lines. So I thought it was really neat.”
The Breeders are currently on the road for a special run of shows performing Last Splash in its entirety, with support from Belly, Screaming Females, and Horsegirl on select dates. They’ll also be supporting Olivia Rodrigo for her LA and New York shows next year.
