With its beginnings in Louisville, Kentucky, the indie outfit Slint was a by product of the
regions legendary band Squirell Bait. Remaining members of a split up Squirell Bait formed Slint in the early 80's,releasing
their first album Tweez in 1987. The album was produced by the legendary Steve Albini, producer of such epic names as the
Pixies and Nirvana. It was their second album, however, entitled Spiderland, that had a major impact on the Indie scene. The
synth rhythms and dark, haunting lyrics are thought to have helped lead the way for new wave bands of the 80's who wanted
to keep that hard core punk vibe with a different style of sound. Spiderland supposedly spawned a whole new genre of Post
Rock and the album came to be regarded as one of the most influential and highly regarded records of the past thirty years.
Although Slint broke up in 1992, they have reunited here and there since 2005 and are back on tour again. Lucky for all you
fans, you may have a chance to catch them live and experience some truly innovative music up close and personal!
