Brownstein’s fandom might come full circle with Sleater-Kinney, which might be ending its hiatus in the future. That is, if Brownstein, Weiss and guitarist/vocalist Corin Tucker, who guest-starred in Portlandia’s first season, can align their disparate schedules to resuscitate one of the most powerful, relevant bands in music history.
“Corin and I are still the best of friends, and we have been talking a lot about Sleater-Kinney as something to do again,” said Brownstein.
Tucker confirmed that she and Brownstein have talked about putting the band back together, which Tucker said she “would love to do someday.”
“But I’m working on a record with my band this year, and Wild Flag is touring, and there’s a couple of other things happening too,” Tucker said in an e-mail to Wired.com. “We’ll see!”
“I’ll try to squeeze it into the one day I have free in 2012!” Brownstein laughed.
