Slint's Spiderland to get massive reissue treatment

Post Author:

Slint, whose 1991 album Spiderland has a desperate cult following, and who never made anything good again*, will be getting a timely reissue treatment from Touch and Go Records this coming April. The reissue has all the trappings of a collector's purchase: remastered tracks, demos, interviews with the band, a documentary directed by Lance Bangs (which I've seen and is great), and a limited edition T-shirt that is made from the original 1989 silk screen the band used for tour that year. And it comes in a limited edition quantity of 3,138.

For $150, you can scoop up the reissue through Touch and Go Records, available for preorder now and for regular order on April 15. A trailer that explains all that is in this package can be watched here:
