-->''"Here is the typical way a new fan of Slint experiences the band. First you buy ''Music/{{Spiderland}}'', because that's the album everyone talks about. And you are blown away by it and vow to purchase everything anyone associated with this band has ever done. So you naturally go to ''Tweez'' next. It's ''not Slint'' - not ''your'' Slint. You buy Music/TheBreeders' first album, ''Pod'', because Slint's drummer plays on the record. It's good, but it's ''not Slint''. Meanwhile you've picked up a For Carnation album (ex-Slint!), Tortoise's ''Millions Now Living Will Never Die'' (ex-Slint!), and maybe one or two Papa M discs (ex-Slint!) - maybe you even tracked down that Evergreen album (ex-Slint!). They're ''not Slint.''"''

** The untitled EP pulls out all the stops, as it depicts a shooting. The overhead photo shows a man's corpse with a bloody stomach wound, his [[DiesWideOpen open eyes]] staring into nothingness. The pistol that presumably caused the injury lays on the ground near him. Two shadowy figures, an adult and a child, observe the scene.

--->- '''Scott Tennant'''

'''Slint''' is an American AlternativeRock band from Kentucky, usually given credit for jump-starting the PostRock genre along with Music/TalkTalk, as well as the MathRock genre. The band formed in 1986 from the ashes of HardcorePunk group Squirrel Bait, with Brian [=McMahan=] (guitar and vocals), David Pajo (guitar), and Britt Walford (drums) staying strong throughout the band's existence. The bassist would always be separate session musicians that would travel with the band.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Interquel}}: The Untitled EP was made of two songs that were recorded in 1989, two years after ''Tweez'' was recorded. It was released in 1994, years after the band had broken up, and is a good insight into Slint's musical evolution from ''Tweez'' to ''Spiderland''.
