I didn't watch it. To be honest, I don't really like Wilco. I've listened to a bunch of their stuff, it doesn't move me. It's not a full on hate, like I have for Ween, but I'd prefer not to hear much Wilco... I thought I'd give the ACL show a try, but decided not to bother... I guess it's a good thing I didn't go out of my way to watch it last night...

i've been told the same thing about MMJ, and have tried... and each time gets a little better, but so far..... not so much.

surprised wilco doesnt do it for ya, Del. i figured you'd be on board with at least the last couple albums. oh well..

we'll always have bobby.......... and the slip.

I really tried with Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (or whatever it's called)... I listened to that for like 2 weeks straight... It just didn't click... Then again, according to Stapes (and just about everyone else in Ottawa) I should be all over Ween... Again, no dice... Oh and guigsy, listening to that late night High Sierra Slip set as I type... Brilliant... How about that Fuji?

well if your not a wilco fan i don't know. i'd put them in the same genre. kind of alt country rockabilly rock goodness. great harmanies and lyrics and killer guitar work.

and yeah i guess bright eyes is mainly this conor dude and has a revolving door of other musicians helping him out.

bright eyes info

Key word(s) there are alt-country... I really like some old country, and I'm big time into bluegrass, but this alt-country stuff just doesn't do it for me...

Is this Bright Eyes kid the same guy behind Broken Social Scene, Godspeed You Black Emperor, etc?

here's a question.... can wilco still be put in the circle of alt country rockabilly bands after the last couple records? sure, after AM, and after Being There, no doubt... and i guess once you get labelled, you're kinda stuck... but personally, i dont get much alt country rockabilly from either of the last 2, and not much from Summerteeth, either... i suppose its an undertone that will always be there, especially in tweedy's lyric writing... but i get more of a textured, layered, weirdness feeling from them these days, to go with the rock goodness, than i do alt country rockabilly... just thinking out loud, really... i dunno... maybe i should put the records on again... its never a bad idea. :)

yeah i wouldn't call YHF alt country i guess. your right with the labels thing they get stuck with it. but there is definately a folk country feel to the last two records. i could see how they could be considered boring by some but to me YHF was the farthest thing from boring. i like layed back tunes you can sing to when your driving. and i do a lot of driving.
