Legendary post-rock group Slint are set to play the final holiday camp instalment of All Tomorrow's Parties.
During their initial lifespan, Slint struggled to gain any kind of acceptance. Releasing a mere two full length albums, their output's quite, patient impact renders them as one of the most influential acts of their generation.
Reforming for a handful of live shows between 2005 and 2007, Slint re-affirmed their status as one of the most empowering, visceral (post) rock acts you're likely to see.
Well, now they're back. Slint have agreed to reform and play at the final holiday camp instalment of All Tomorrow's Parties. Taking place at Pontins between November 29th and December 1st, ATP's Barry Hogan introduces Slint by reflecting on the impact the band's music had on him personally.
"I'll never forget the first time I heard 'Spiderland'. It’s one of those records that changed my life and even inspired me to reform the band in 2005 by flying to Louisville, and bringing all the original members together for the first time in 13 years. 'Spiderland' still excites me now as much as the first time I heard it. To say we are fortunate to have this incredibly influential band play the final ATP is a huge understatement."
