"At least that's what you said" has the best guitar solo since, I don't know, something on "Where you been?"

good stuff. thanks for the post, OMW, Jeff Tweedy is so cool. hope he gets out of rehab fast. I was supposed to see Wilco in Indio next month but I won't be able to make it. listening to "Ghost" now is almost as good

Wilco has canceled out of Coachella because of the aforementioned rehab stint.

I'd like to second the Nels Cline is the shit!!! comment. Check him out at www.nelscline.com. He's a regular in the Bay Area music scene (among others I'm sure, but that's where I know him from).

trbrts: But, they have, however, scheduled about two dozen more show for Europe...

Fingers crossed that the Nova is next on the list... I just know the Metro Centre's just crying out for some hot Wilco action!

well, between you and me -- actually it's because when I called Jeff to tell him I couldn't be there he just said, fuck Coachella then, I'm entering rehab

Nels Cline is amazing. Haven't heard the Wilco stuff yet, but Cline's work is always challenging and fun. His work on the Henry Kaiser/Wadada Leo Smith Yo! Miles is great. Very sophisticated covers of electric Miles.

*Sigh*
I snagged Coachella tickets two weeks ago, and Jeff Tweedy has to go Rush Limbaugh on me...

No chance in any of the the Pixies ending up in rehab, right?

I have said this before, this album is excellent. Better than "Yankee Hotel," though I predict it will be a lot less popular.

I've enjoyed each Wilco record as they've come out, and found them all very listenable, but I've never really been able to shake the sense that there was something weak at the core of the songs. They've always sounded like a backup band with personality--like a band that has a genuine spark, but at the same time have nothing really to say. This record seems to have more depth to it than their previous releases had-- YHF included. It'll be interesting to see how well it holds up after repeated listenings.

anathema: There's a new Yo Miles! album coming out in a month. No Cline, though. I think there's a new Nels Cline Singers album due out soon.
