...And the Slint shall rise again!

From Billboard:

Meanwhile, work continues on the DVD chronicling Slint's brief 2005 reunion tour, but as [guitarist David] Pajo notes, the Slint camp has never been known for operating within time constraints.

"In Slint, there's no real leader, so it's hard to get things going," he says. "We were also talking about remastering the records. I don't think 'Spiderland' was mastered properly, at least the CD version. We want to go back to the original tapes and make a remastered CD version that will sound more like what it is supposed to sound like. But we'd have to agree on who does it, where and if we all need to be present. We don't have anybody organized enough to set all this up. But all this stuff will get done. It will come out eventually."

Fuck yeah.

Last I checked, I thought you didn't even like Slint that much? Or was that just the one album you picked up used at Vinyl Fever that time?

Could this comment be any more inside?

"Spiderland," the famous cover of which I put on that post (which holds an eerie similarity to this cover), was a little underwhelming at the first couple of listens, but it grew on me as I listened to it more.

More importantly, I realized that Slint never got to exist as a band. I can barely imagine what they'd be like today if they stuck around like Tortoise has. They'd so out there, so bizarre...
