What is the Cult of Point Break Society?
COPBS began back in 2004 with an idea to cover a weird record that I thought was great, Slint’s “Spiderland” Interesting idea, right? Take an utterly obscure band, with only two albums and two songs to their credit, and revive their music? As it turns out, that’s exactly why all of us had to do it. It was a total subversion of the whole cover/tribute band idea and image. Remember one of those times you met someone who likes some weird band that no one likes except for you? Chances are you developed a connection with that person, no matter how different they might have been in all other ways from you. That’s the vein we’re trying to tap into here; that experience of improbably connecting with another person over a forgotten or unjustly ignored work of art .
