The Breeders - Divine Hammer

1. Divine Hammer
2. Hoverin'
3. I Can't Help It (If I'm Still In Love With You)
4. Do You Love Me Now Jr.?

My favorite of the Last Splash singles, since it's a treasure trove of neat non-album sides. "Divine Hammer" is a different, more crude version than found on Last Splash. The guitar solo evokes Shadowy Men On a Shadowy Planet for some reason, and "Hoverin'" later appeared in a different form on Pacer, the first and only record by Kim Deal's next band, the Amps. The version of "Do You Love Me Now" features Dinosaur Jr.'s cheif weirdo J. Mascis on vocal croaks.
