Congratulations! Can't wait to read this book.

Love the album, but need help explaining it to skeptical friends. This should help.

this is great - I love the 33 1/3 series. I'm looking forward to your book.

Oh snap!
You've got to interview Dave Pajo and old members of the "Washer" e-mail list about possible Voivod Nothingface influences on Spiderland. Dave Pajo wore a Voivod tshirt at their All Tomorrow's Parties show (see pic at http://trickledown.files.wordpress.com/2008/03/slint1.jpg). They're there--the whispered lyrics and pretty guitar into to Missing Sequences, the high-pitched descending guitar part that's like the high pitched guitar part in Slint's Nosferatu Man, etc.

here's another slint dave pajo pic of him in a voivod shirt

Here's a great photo of Slint with Dave Pajo wearing a Voivod shirt in 2005 in Chicago:

Awesome - thanks a. I definitely hear a metal influence (and it's clearly there in the research I've done) but hadn't specifically made a Voivod connection. I'll check them out.
