Whereas The Spent Poets' retro-pop was out of step with the alternative rock of the era, Slider fit right in - sounding something like The Replacements for the post-Nirvana set. Perhaps they blended in a bit too much, as seemingly no one payed much attention. The album was produced by David Bianco, who has also produced for Teenage Fanclub and Frank Black (among others), along with Winegar himself, who had assisted in the production of the first Primus album. As far as I can tell, this would be the last the world would hear from Slider. These days Matthew Winegar is working primarily as a producer, you can check out some of his work (including old Spent Poets and Slider demos) at his MySpace. As for Josh Freese, its no secret that he has since become one of the most in-demand studio and live drummers in music - and deservedly so.
