Breadcrumb Trail is a 90-minute documentary about Slint and their classic 1991 album Spiderland. It’s directed by Lance Bangs and includes interviews with the band, plus James Murphy, Steve Albini, David Yow, Ian MacKaye, Matt Sweeney, and others. It’s included in the Spiderland box set and screening in select cities. Check out the trailer below.
Here’s what Bangs says about the film in a press release:
“My new feature length documentary Breadcrumb Trail is about Slint and the Louisville music culture they emerged from. 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.”
The Spiderland box set is out April 15 via Touch and Go.
