<div><font face="Times New Roman" size=3>Of all the seminal albums to come out in 1991—the year of <em>Nevermind</em>, <em>Loveless</em>, <em>Ten</em>, and <em>Out of Time</em>, among others—none were quieter, both in volume and influence, than <em>Spiderland</em>, and no band more mysterious than Slint. Few single albums can lay claim to sparking an entire genre, but <em>Spiderland</em>—all six songs of it—laid the foundation for post rock in the 1990s. Yet for so much obvious influence, both the band and the album remain something of a puzzle. <br/><br/>This thoroughly researched book is the first substantive attempt to break through some of the mystery surrounding <em>Spiderland</em> and the band that made it. Scott Tennent has written a long overdue look at this remarkable album and its origins, delving into the small, insular musical universe that included bands like Squirrel Bait, Maurice, Bitch Magnet, and Bastro. The story, helped by in-depth interviews with band members David Pajo and Todd Brashear, explores the formation of Slint, the recording of <em>Tweez</em>, and the band's dramatic move into the sound of <em>Spiderland</em>.  </font></div>>
