1 8 LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 7.14 thebit WE L OVE SPOTTING We spotted this fella at a Younger Woman's Club fashion show. (Send us an unexpected feur-de-lis spotting of your own. It just might make a future issue. editorial@loumag.com, subject: feur-de-lis.) for a kid Question Do you like living in Louisville? "I like it. Because we have Christmas." — Annie, local second-grader www.ymcalouisvillechildcare.org www.cfouisville.org In darkened clear water. That's where it hap- pened. Louisville rock legends Slint (whose reunion tour makes a stop at Forecastle on Satur- day, July 19) drove up to Utica Quarry in south- ern Indiana to take the cover photo for their 1991 masterpiece Spiderland. The foursome's class- mate and longtime friend Will Oldham (yes, that Will Oldham, the enigmatic Louisville musician) snapped the iconic black-and-white picture him- self. About 10 years ago the old limestone quarry became part of a private housing development called Quarry Bluff Estates, but adventurous Slint fans can walk (read: sneak) through the front gate to witness "Utica Quarry, Nighttime" in person. It's easy to see why the band chose to take the photo at the quarry: Spiderland's broken sound oozed a sense of human insignifcance, and the quarry's ominous, looming rock cliffs could make even Game of Thrones giant Ser Gregor Clegane feel tiny. The only secret that Slint fans have yet to discover is whose Saab is featured on the cover of the band's debut, Tweez. — Will Ryan 12-25 BIT.indd 18 6/18/14 9:36 AM
