Superchunk: Are you keeping track?

Some of y'all helped so much with digging up Juliana Hatifield's latest stuff I thought I'd try it with Superchunk.

Starting with "Foolish" in '94, (still one of my favorite albums of all time) I bought all their releases up until (including) "Come Pick Me Up". I guess I just moved on, and the TERRIBLE concert they gave at the 40Watt in Athens around 2000 made me lose interest.

(Seriously, I've never been that disappointed in a concert. Ever.)

Has anyone kept up with them lately? What recent releases are worth getting? Hell, for that matter, are they still even a band?

Thanks for any help.

I'm not sure they are still a band...i think they are on indefinite hiatis...whatever that means. Currently Portastatic is active. Their new album is above average in my estimation but nothing spectacular. Superchunk released a sort of retrospective called cup of sand...it's a double disc filled with songs from over the years as well as live, b-sides, etc. and is pretty good. that might be a good place to start.
