"Adapt and evolve"

When the Guardian's Laura Snapes went to Portland to interview Sleater-Kinney in the middle of last month, only Carrie Brownstein and Corin Tucker were available, with Janet Weiss ill. Except, it subsequently transpired, she wasn't - she was in the process of quitting the band.

Touching on the significance and fallout of the drummer's departure, Snapes' excellent article also covers the diversity of "expansive and adventurous" new LP The Center Won't Hold, changing personal priorities and commitments, and Tucker and Brownstein's continued belief in taking risks - even at the cost of alienating long-term fans (and, it seems, Weiss too).

Is your interview with S-K online anywhere?
