A few weeks back we got word that Slint’s untouchable masterpiece Spiderland would be given a lavish box-set reissue. One thing included in the set is the upcoming Lance Bangs-directed documentary on the band, Breadcrumb Trail. Slint have always had such a mystique, and unless you read Scott Tennant’s 33 1/3 book on them, a lot of their story remains unknown. Discovering the history behind Spiderland does take some of that mystery away, but it makes you appreciate Slint even more. You can watch the trailer for the documentary, featuring a few moments of the band practicing “Good Morning Captain” in their basement, which by itself should be enough to get you pumped for this movie. Check it out below, and pre-order the box set here.
The remastered box set for Spiderland is out 4/15 via Touch And Go.
