5.0 étoiles sur 5 This Is THE Book On Slint (Not Just Spiderland) 11 janvier 2011
Par John Carswell - Publié sur
I can remember it like it was yesterday. The year was 1994, and I was a freshman in high school, examining a double-sided, photo-copied Slamdek Records catalog. My eyes fell upon a blurb about a band named Slint, and I fixated on a quote that went like this: "Even Stone Temple Pilots rip off big ideas from these guys." Not that I was an STP fan, but it didn't take me long to realize that these Slint guys were a big deal. A few days later, I boogied on up to Mike Bucayu`s Blue Moon Records in Holiday Manor and bought myself a cassette copy of Tweez. So, when I popped that sucker into my bookshelf setup, and the first discordant notes of "Ron" came blaring through my speakers, I was a little taken aback. Was this really the pride of Louisville?

Suffice to say, eventually I got it, and that's why I'm pleased to say that Scott Tennent has finally written THE BOOK on Slint, a band that was heretofore the subject of so much conjecture, hearsay, and legend that it was often hard to distinguish fact from fiction. Starting in 1982 with Brian McMahan`s first band, Languid and Flaccid, the book not only serves as the definitive story on Slint, but it also covers just about everything you'd want to know about seminal Louisville acts like Squirrel Bait, Maurice, and Solution Unknown. Tangentially, it even goes quite a ways toward revealing some of Will Oldham`s artistic roots as well. Through in-depth research and first-hand accounts from Dave Pajo, Todd Brashear, Ethan Buckler, and the imminently quotable Sean "Rat" Garrison, Tennant takes the band from cradle to grave, telling the story of the band's origins as a Pajo/Britt Walford side project, Steve Albini`s early embrace of the band, the controversial Tweez sessions and departure of Buckler, the second Albini session that produced the Glenn/Rhoda 10"', their efforts to establish themselves as a live act in 1989 and 1990, the Spiderland sessions, and the band's subsequent demise in late 1990.

Along the way, Tennent's account is revelatory, capturing the artistic dynamics that went into composing and making Spiderland, and demonstrates that Slint were truly aiming for something new and unique. They were a band driven towards the sort of precision and craftsmanship that is often dismissed by rock musicians, and one gets the sense from reading Spiderland that one of the reasons the record is so special is that those guys cared about the placement and performance of every single note. Tennent's analysis of Spiderland`s tracks is quite insightful as well, and even for those, like myself, who have listened to the record dozens of times, it refreshes the record and illuminates just what it is that makes it such an uncanny experience. Let me just put it this way: having just finished Tennent's Spiderland, "Good Morning, Captain" sounds even greater.

It's about time someone got around to writing this book. Tennent's Spiderland is HIGHLY recommended for any Slint fan, Slint-curious music fan, Slint-skeptic, or fan of interesting music in general.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Welcome to Spiderland 11 février 2011

Having read approx a dozen of these little books from the 333series, this is the first time I have felt compelled to provide a review. This is not to say the other books were bad. There are two or three where I felt the writer had managed in capturing the album, the band and the bands philosophy re. their own music (whether spoken or not) and merge that into a tight unit that structured the writing on that ideal.

This book has been written by Scott Tennent, who also incidentally has a blog called Pretty goes with Pretty. I mention this as it will give you a good idea on his writing. I bought the book regardless, but reading some of his thoughts on music you can quickly appreciate he writes in a solid manner, can appreciate the poetry of music, without sounding esoteric you lose interest.

If you are a fan of Slint, this book will no doubt fill in blanks, perhaps the detail that the writer goes into with the recording of Spiderland, perhaps the detail with the history that led up to the start of Slint. The influence and support of Steve Albini to help Slint be heard by a wider group of people.
Overall the writer appreciates the historical factors that run up to Spiderland and discusses this in enough detail so you don't feel you have just jumped into a great big hole with no context.

Most importantly for me, Tennent weaves and unfolds the slight and tender story of Slint so much that even if you know everything about Slint it will still grab you. It unfolds in such a way that you almost feel and hear the music in the reading. It sucks you into Spiderland and keeps you there for the duration of the book. It lets you appreciate what is going on with the music. It lets you see the precision and control and compositional talent these guys manifested with Spiderland. The care and attention they lavished and also the sadness of the split.
When the writer knows his/her subject, then that writing enhances what is being written about and this is certainly the case with Spiderland. Even if you have heard it 100 times you still take something else, something new from the music experience.

Tennent doesn't fall into hero worship, at times he sees flaws and misgivings with Slint, Spiderland and Tweez. However, this doesn't hinder him on seeing what lies within - that the flaws and the weakness still reveal greatness.

If you are not a fan of Slint, or have not heard the music, this offers you a great chance to find something not only new, but something that will last as a companion to the music and this is music to last.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent book! Buy it now! 15 février 2012
Par John Everyman - Publié sur
Unlike many of the others in the 33 1/3 series, Spiderland is not just a fan gushing over how mind-blowing the album is (Daydream Nation) or a cooler-than-you music journalist trying to get people to acknowledge how uber hip they are (Loveless). The author put a lot of time and effort into telling Slint's story. Unfortunately, half of the band declined to be interviewed for the book, but the other two members, as well as some other insiders, give excellent accounts of how the album came to be. If you're a fan of Spiderland and would like to know a little more about the album, then THIS IS THE BOOK TO GET. Highly recommended.

I received this book today and finished it in one sitting. It went into detail about the bands the preceded and came after Slint as well as an in depth look into the songs on Spiderland.

What I really liked was that Tennent even managed to include details on the bands songwriting process with information straight from most of the band members (Brian McMahan was the exception as he rarely gives interviews). This extra insight made me realize how much work went into the book as well as the making of a one of a kind album. Any fan of the album has to buy this!

Great book on a mystical and highly important band, and a needed one at that. They're still pretty mystical to me though, but that's ok.
