Local Music Notebook: Slint, Styx & St. Louis Palooza

"Slint's been riding the whole 'isn't our album Spiderland great?' train for a while now, ever since the band reunited for the first time back in 2005," Marah Eakin writes for The A.V. Club.

"And while nine years seems like a long time for an almost 30-year-old band to harp on a record that came out in 1991, Spiderland is, in fact, a really fucking fantastic record. So fantastic indeed that it's not only spawned a new deluxe reissue, but also a new documentary, Lance Bangs' Breadcrumb Trail. The film comes packaged in the intense, $150 box set, but what really stands out about the Spiderland set is the actual music.

"Remastered here by Shellac's Bob Weston, Spiderland shines in its simplicity."

You can click through for the rest, but here's what caught our attention for the purposes of this column.

"The band included a kickass cover of Neil Young's 'Cortez The Killer' recorded live in Chicago in 1989, hecklers and all."

Here it is, recorded at the late Club Dreamerz:

Here's the whole set.
