Slint's Spiderland is getting a super fancy box set

Slint’s Spiderland, one of the best post-rock records of all time, is being reissued in a deluxe, remastered box set. The $150 collection hits stores April 15 and is available for pre-order now via the long-silent Touch And Go Records. Only 3,138 copies will be issued, and each comes packed with bonus material, including a 104-page book full of never-before-seen photos and lyrics, as well as a forward by Will Oldham. Other bonus material includes Breadcrumb Trail, a 90-minute DVD documentary about the making of Spiderland that's directed by Lance Bangs and a CD of 14 bonus songs. Those who pre-order the record before March 8 will also get a free T-shirt printed from the original silkscreen used to produce a run of Slint’s one and only official T-shirt back in 1989. And those who pre-order through Touch And Go will also get their commemorative book signed by Slint members David Pajo, Todd Brashear, Brian McMahan, and Britt Walford.
