The line-up that recorded ‘Last Splash’ – Kim Deal, Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson – will reunite for a special 20th anniversary performance of the album at the three-day festival, which takes place at Pontins, Camber Sands from June 21-23, 2013.
‘Last Splash’ was The Breeders‘ second album and would be the last the band recorded until 2002’s ‘Title TK’, by which point Wiggs and Macpherson had departed. To mark the LP’s 20th anniversary, 4AD plan are releasing a Deluxe Anniversary Edition of ‘Last Splash’ called ‘LSXX’ next April (2013).
The Breeders are no strangers to ATP, having curated the May 2009 festival at Minefield. They also played the September 2010 event in New York.
Another new addition to Deerhunter‘s ATP bash is a special collaboration between former Sonic Youth bassist Kim Gordon and Japanese drummer/composer Ikue Mori. As announced last month (November 2012), the three-day festival will also feature Deerhunter performing their albums ‘Cryptograms’, ‘Microcastle’ and ‘Halcyon Digest’, as well as sets from Atlas Sound, Panda Bear and Animal Collective DJs.
