Oh, oh, the treats. If you know that lyric, chances are you are indulging in some very tasty, decades-old goodies from The Breeders.

That wonderful band of indie rockers -- the "classic" lineup led by Kim Deal, along with her twin, Kelley, Brit bassist Josephine Wiggs and drummer boy Jim Macpherson -- put out its legendary "Last Splash" album in August 1993. The next year, that lineup dissolved, but not before cementing the sweet sounds of "Cannonball," "Divine Hammer," "No Aloha" and "Do You Love Me Now?" into our skulls.

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the album, the group hit the road for a tour and recently released the "LSXX" box set. So many highlights, so little space, but here goes:

10-inch EPs of "Safari," "Cannonball," "Divine Hammer" and "Head to Toe" (includes their redo of Dayton, Ohio, homies Guided by Voices' "Shocker in Gloomtown")

12-inch vinyl live concert album, "The Stockholm Syndrome," recorded in Sweden in '94, during the final European tour

12-inch of a BBC radio session from July 1993 and available here for the first time; also includes the original "Last Splash" demo recordings from November 1992
