Roger...Over and Out

I'm in a DJ'ing frame of mind while polishing three new short stories.

I'm a sucker for Wilco. (h/ts) Great live band. Saw 'em here with Wisdomie and Wisdoc in a driving rainstorm for two hours. They said they'd play 'til the rain stopped. And damn if they didn't. Said they'd come back. They're coming back next week to kick off their new album. 'Spect I'll be there.

Daddy Rock Rules!

Hello. I'm so glad you left a comment. Sadly I'm not going to the Wilco show. It should be wonderful and I hope you have a great time! One of these days, I plan to see them live. What a show they put on! And Nels Cline makes those guitars do things I've never seen before.

Yes. It gets to the point that when Nels pulls out that beaten up old green and brown Fender Jazzmaster, you start salivating 'cause you know he's going to launch into some shredding solo that'll just blow you away.

I hadn't heard of Wilco before.

Will listen again.

Did I unknowingly reference these guys, 'cause I can't say I've ever listened to them 'cause there's so much goddamn music, the cause of everything.

Jim H. said...

if & rg: yeah, they're this obscure little combo out of, I believe, Chicago or something. Lead singer used to be in a country band, Uncle Tupelo, with Jay Farrar. Look 'em up. Heh.

Come to think of it, there's a pretty good Soundstage where they open up for The Sonic Youths.
