I feel weird about music that seemed like ‘the future’ to me for so long actually being very very old and in the past.
And I still tend to think of Slint as young kids but I guess they were in their 20s even then.
Fair enough. I guess im getting ‘album x will be x years old’ fatigue.
Steve these headphones are fucked up
AND HAVE BEEN FOR THIRTY YEARS
Who gives a shit maaaaan
Never really liked them until I watched that breadcrumb trail documentary and realised they were just a bunch of weird kids, also think it’s funny how the whole way through it’s like they are just kids making weird music in their parents basement in the middle of nowhere then at the end they drop in Britt also played drums for the breeders pre spiderland
That’s a great doc. It’s a shame it didn’t get a wider release beyond the Spiderland reissue and a coupla screenings because it’s a really interesting story, even for people with no interest in Slint / Louisville post-hardcore
When I fancy a Slint fix it’s very hard to look beyond Spiderland or the EP. Kind of neglect Tweez, even though I do like it.
That gig at Koko was brilliant.
Came out the year I was born so sounds about right aye
They were amazing at Albert Hall a few years back. Even if it was the coldest gig I’ve ever been to.
Ah the Tweez EP before their one and only album Spiderland
The Slint EP is still my favourite thing.
However, was just reading about it and it was recorded around the same time it seems. If that’s true is there a chance someone could master Tweez again so it doesn’t sound like it was recorded in a tin can? The sound quality on the EP is blinding.
Quite like the idea of covering Nevermind in the style of Spiderland
