Full of unearthed VHS footage and interviews with the likes of Steve Albini, Fugazi’s Ian MacKaye and Jesus Lizard’s David Yow, Portland director Lance Bangs has pieced together a 90-minute documentary about Slint and their influential 1991 album Spiderland (stream it below).
"My new feature length documentary Breadcrumb Trail is about Slint and the Louisville music culture they emerged from," Bangs stated in a press release. "It includes footage going back to the early 1990s that I shot when repeatedly driving up from Athens, Ga., to Louisville to try to chase rumors of what they guys were up to. Over the years, I tracked down more stories about them, then began filming interviews with each of the band members and their contemporaries. We also unearthed some unseen/uncirculated footage from their few live performances as well as the writing and arranging of Spiderland."
