In 1991, teenage Louisville, Kentucky band Slint recorded 'Spiderland', a brooding, sinister record that helped invent post-rock and influenced a generation of musicians. This week's guest Jay Reeve (Muteant Sounds Net Label) joins Rob to dissect this darkly mysterious album.
As Steve Albini wrote in a 1991 Melody Maker review: "It's an amazing record, and no one still capable of being moved by rock music should miss it. In 10 years' time, it will be a landmark and you'll have to scramble to buy a copy then."
