Slint hint at reunion plans next year

Guitarist Dave Pajo says that 'fans will be excited' in 2013

Slint hint at reunion plans next year
Slint are likely reform next year, their guitarist Dave Pajo has revealed.

One of the most seminal players in the post-rock movement, the Kentucky band split in 1990 after just two albums, 'Tweez' and 'Spiderland'.

The band have reformed in the past, initially getting together to curate the 2005 edition of All Tomorrow’s Parties, and continued playing shows together into 2007.

Now, Pajo has suggested that the members will be back together next year. Although not giving too much away, he admitted in a new interview with I Heart AU that more activity is likely next year.

He said:

We still communicate regularly and we’ve got some surprises for next year that fans will be excited about. I know I am.

Since Slint's original run, Pajo has worked with everyone from Tortoise, Billy Corgan’s short-lived band Zwan, to Interpol and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

But Pajo has admitted that the adoration afforded to 'Spiderland' in the years since has taken him by surprise. He said: "To this day I am still stunned anyone has ever heard of Slint. It's taken me a long time to realise that [the album's iconic status] is deserved."

He added, "I remember being unhappy with the result, overall. It wasn't perfect but I thought it was pretty good considering how small our budget was. It seemed to be an honest 'snapshot' of where we were at the time. That's not to say there weren't moments of pure magic in the studio."
