Uncle Tupelo in the Olden Days

Thursday, September 6th, 2007

Looking for an excuse to play some more with MarsEdit 2 and see how it does with embedding YouTube videos. Here’s one that I found recently: Uncle Tupelo taped for local cable access show in St. Louis. I think Jeff and Jay probably were so young that they didn’t have their licenses yet and Mr. [...]

Wiilco

Sunday, June 24th, 2007

Oh, man… Two of my favorite things (around here) all mashed up: Wilco and the Nintendo Wii. This t-shirt is available on Wilco’s current tour (Summer 2007) (unfortunately, I don’t think I’ll be able to catch any shows)… Anyone going to see Wilco on this tour, could you PLEASE pick up this t-shirt for me?

Golden Smog Last Night

Wednesday, September 20th, 2006

I finally got to see my favorite super group in full glory last night as Golden Smog played The Vic Theatre in Chicago. To answer the big question, yes, Jeff Tweedy played the entire show (or at least the songs that featured him). It was really interesting to see Tweedy in this setting since he [...]

While I’m on this Uncle Tupelo kick…

Monday, May 22nd, 2006

this seems to a pretty fitting song lately. I have to say that it’s one of my favorite songs done live by Jeff Tweedy and/or Wilco. “We’ve Been Had” by Uncle Tupelo (off the Anodyne album) There’s a guitar leaning on a Marshall stack Used to sound like the sun on the horizon Now I [...]

Another Wilco RSS Feed

Wednesday, January 18th, 2006

Back in November, I mentioned that WilcoBase now has an RSS Feed so you could easily keep track of the band’s setlists for each show. Today, while poking around the official Wilco site (looking to see when the presale started for the upcoming Tweedy solo show in Dekalb), I saw that the band now has [...]

Wilco Setlists via RSS

Monday, November 7th, 2005

I recently stumbled upon a pretty interesting use of RSS for you geeky Wilco fans out there (and I’ll have to stereotype and say that most Wilco fans have a touch of geekiness to them ~ myself included). The fine folks at WilcoBase have an RSS feed that you can subscribe to that brings you [...]

Thax Explains It All

Tuesday, May 31st, 2005

If you’ve been to a Wilco show, you’ve probably seen Thax Douglas read a poem before the show. That was until recently… Thax explains him and Wilco parting ways. P.S. A pretty good interview with Thax is available over at Glorious Noise.
