Sort of named after the strangely stork-like man who used to manage Newcastle United, this is an appendage to Slint's two classic albums 'Tweez' and 'Spiderland'. If I remember correctly it takes one unused track from the sessions for each of the albums. Essential stuff particularly as they didn't release anything else after this.

8/10 Tom Customer review, 21st May 2018
Recorded after Slint finished their debut album in 1989 (before it was released) but shelved until after the band had broken up, this untitled EP is very much the missing link between Tweez and their 1991 masterpiece Spiderland. Containing just two tracks, a re-recording of Tweez's 'Rhoda' and a new song called 'Glenn', the untitled EP marks the moment when Slint began to take full control of their sound and their craft. Although it was recorded with Steve Albini who had also 'produced' Tweez, the songs have a more naturalistic sound which the band later perfected on the Brian Paulson-produced Spiderland. 'Glenn' in particular signals the shadowy, spidery music that was soon to come; the fiendish melodies of guitarists David Pajo and Brian McMahan, Britt Walford's masterfully suspenseful drumming and the incredible dynamic shifts of the band as a whole.
