Slint’s Spiderland to get deluxe re-issue

By | Published on Friday 31 January 2014


Slint’s cult classic second album ‘Spiderland’ is to get a deluxe boxset release, for no particular reason that I can see (it’s not a major anniversary, I mean).

As well as remastering the original six tracks, the Touch & Go label has added a further fourteen demos, outtakes and live tracks, all provided on vinyl and CD. As well as that, it’ll come packed with a 104 page book, with foreword by the album’s cover photographer, Will Oldham, and a 90 minute documentary directed by Lance Bangs. And a t-shirt if you pre-order early enough.

The 3138 limited edition boxsets will be available to the public from 15 Apr, so if you want one, you should get your pre-ordering done here.

If you want, you can watch a trailer for the release here. I can’t imagine why you would want to, but I don’t think Slint ever made any music videos, so tough luck, there’s nothing else to look at.
