Twenty years ago this week, Spiderland hit stores like a drop of water in a vast ocean. How we all still know about it (and, for many, revere it) all these years later is a miracle of word of mouth.
On the occasion of the anniversary I did an interview with Adam Trainer of the excellent post-rock radio show out of Australia, Posted, who dedicated a whole two-hour show to the album's anniversary (click on the March 23 episode). The show includes tracks by Slint as well as bands from Slint members both before and after, as well as lots of other groups from the same general universe, interspersed with clips of me in conversation with Trainer about the album and its legacy. You can also hear my interview in full, sans music.
Oh, and if you havn't already, buy the freakin' book!
