I wonder what it would sound like to play some Wilco, Son Volt and Uncle Tupelo in close order formation...

Not today. We got this from R.E.M.'s "These Days".  Nice.

This sounds like a homage to Tusk era Fleetwood Mac, same stompy drumming with syncopated riffing. Even the singing sounds similar.

I think a good segue here would be to Me and My Arrow by Harry Nilsson from the 1970s. I'm just saying...

definitely one of the best albums of the 20-zeros. (not only) this song is absolutely brillant. simple, catchy, clever, disturbing, beautiful and dangerous.

I don't think so.
I need a camera to my eye
To my eye, reminding
Which lies I have been hiding
which echoes belong
I've counted out days
to see how far
I've driven in the dark
with echoes in my heart Phone my family, tell them I'm lost
on the sidewalk
and, no, it's not OK

The album cover art is of the corn-cob towers in downtown Chicago.  Brings back great memories of my years in Chi-town.

None.

It's rather amusing you'd imply Wilco are sell-outs, as if they are selling out stadiums when the reality is their popularity barely outstrips the Jayhawks'.

You can listen to Golden Smog, which includes both Jeff Tweedy and members of the Jayhawks (who are, like, friends) if it makes you happy.

I saw some people talking about live Wilco performances. I saw them at sunset at the Austin City Limits music festival in Zilker Park in Sept 07, and they were awesome. I love this band. It was my second favorite show of the weekend, next to the Indigo Girls, who totally blew us all away.

I've seen Wilco several times. I also saw them in Las Vegas on that same tour with REM several years back. The show was very surprising. They were horrible. I was more excited to see Wilco than REM based on my earlier fantastic live experiences with Wilco. Not sure what happened on that tour, but I came away very disappointed. And, you are right, REM came onstage and completely blew them away. I think that tour was an aberration, as Wilco has been fantastic every other time I have seen them.


Hmmm...I have seen them multiple times on the last two tours...whatever problems they had on the Yankee Hotel Foxtrot Tour seemed to have been worked out just fine...

i've only seen them once, in copenhagen, and i was a bit dissappointed. they seemed like they were working hard to sound "hard" and more rock like.....it did not do justice to their songs.

That sucks man. You think Wilco at Red Rocks would be one of the best shows ever. You could see Hanson there and it would still be good just because it was at Red Rocks. I saw Wilco twice, and both times were free. First time at State College. Penn State always invites free bands at the end of the spring semester for the Seniors. The last at the Pittsburgh art fest at Point Park State Park. Both were great shows.
