“Good morning, Captain.”
March 13, 2005
Slint was an obscure indie rock band who, when they weren’t bathing in Kentucky’s loveliest lakes, played a few shows and released a grand total of two records from 1986 to 1991. These comedians thought it would be funny to release one of them–a classic album full of mooooody and quiet, loud, quiet, loud, quiet, loud, quiet, loud indie rock–just a hot minute before they broke up. Called Spiderland, the disc, of course, grew in popularity in subsequent years, made an impression on other like-minded outfits and became the toast of the town.
