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.

  1. Bangs aired about 15-20 minutes of it at a birthday bash in LA two years ago. The footage he has is incredible, and it also has Steve Albini telling the story of how the Jesus Lizard came up with the song Mouth Breather. It’s Slint-inspired and excellent.

  2. They were so fucking young. Never realized it until this trailer – definitely excited for this doc.
