Everyone would love Wilco if they did some Germs covers.

Wait a minute, Donna's a black ILXor who loves Wilco. THE CIRCLE IS COMPLETE.

Thank you. I'll be here all week

I was in a record store last night and they were playing a copy of A Ghost Is Born. It sounded better than YHF.

Dear Wilco, Please play and write more in the style of AM and less of this pretentious horse doo. Your fan, Nick

You just don't get where Tweeeeeeeeeeedy's comin' from, man

Morley Timmons (Donna Brown), Wednesday, 9 June 2004 16:34 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

man Tweeeedy's lyrix are so deep man and it's like how Tweeedy sings about stuff like abuse and drugs and relationships but he doesn't at the same time you know because Tweeedy sort of gets all abstract and I'm so happy they're not country anymore because country sucks as we all know omg

i'm just so tired of people basing musical judgments on the press/supposed cultural positioning of artists. and in a really dumb way too. there's no reason has to like wilco (i don't care about them either way) but assailing the supposed stupidity of their fans doesn't quite cut it as an argument for hating them.

amateur!st (amateurist), Wednesday, 9 June 2004 20:03 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Indeed.

I don't have hatred for their fans, honestly. Wilco's music just isn't my cup of tea (nor was Son Volt's or Uncle Tupelo's and whatnot). I have nothing seriously against Wilco fans.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Wednesday, 9 June 2004 20:05 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

i wasn't accusing you, alex. there were some other posts on this and a few other wilco threads that were more what i had in mind.

FUCK A WILCO FAN! AND THE CORDUROYS THEY RODE IN ON.

ddb (ddb), Wednesday, 9 June 2004 20:08 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

i enjoyed summerteeth quite a bit, so i could, in some ways, be deemed a wilco fan...

weasel diesel (K1l14n), Wednesday, 9 June 2004 20:09 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

i found a used sun-times on the bus the other day, and there was a big story about wilco by....dum de dum dum...jim derogatis. absent rogatis's "criticism" or platitudes about rock'n'roll, he is actually a more-than-competent music journalist. i wasn't terribly interested in wilco's new record, but the article was straightforward and reasonably engrossing. so i owe a faint apology to jim derogatis. now if only he could get himself off that tv show and radio show and stop writing concert reviews....

I never actually heard Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, but I really disliked his earlier stuff. But yeah, knee-jerk Wilco hate is pretty boring. It only makes me WANT to hear the record. Especially when the hate is being doled out by the Reynoldsite dork brigade. I mean, there must be something in the records that is good - perhaps some good instrumental performances? - to garner that reaction.

Broheems (diamond), Wednesday, 9 June 2004 20:23 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I actually really like Wilco quite a bit, their fans can indeed be amusing though. especially when you live with them.

Gear! (Gear!), Wednesday, 9 June 2004 20:28 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Apart from probably being white, is there really a common element to Wilco fans? Sartorial or otherwise?

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Wednesday, 9 June 2004 20:30 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

And I don't think anyone at all was judging Wilco via their fanbase.

a google image search for "Wilco fans" turned up some pics of Jeff Tweedy and family barbeques, sort of weird.

That would make a great album cover, in a "Pretzel Logic" kind of way.

having lurked on and off here for years, this site makes so much more sense to me now that I realize I know Alex in real life. what do you actually listen to these days, Alex, besides the cries of your adorable daughter and the bitching of editors?

I haven't heard the new one yet, and I'm not much of a Wilco fan either, but O'Rourke tells me there's a 15 minute track that's right up my alley, so I am at least curious...

jon abbey, Thursday, 10 June 2004 19:18 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I think I might've gone to a preschool called Wilco. Not sure.

Wilco's okay. I liked YHF and some of what I've heard on A Ghost is Born. And actually, I was a big fan of "Box Full of Letters" when it was played on WXRT in the summer of 1995, and I was a 16-year-old file clerk at an insurance company who drove 20 minutes to work on frontage roads and listened to the radio. I've heard Being There and Summerteeth and parts of Mermaid Avenue in passing, simply because I went to college with humanities majors in the late nineties, but none of these really did anything for me. (Probably because they'd moved away from their country affectations but hadn't yet discovered the lovely ramshackle virtues of YHF [not so much "experimental" as everybody'd have you believe {I'm just as sick of the "OMG AVANT-POP MASTERPIECE P&J #1!" as much as everyone else} so much as a greater interest in sonic texture; Kotche's drumming adds a lot] -- they just sorta seemed boring in that mid-period, is all.)

Ah y'know...more of the same stuff you'd probably disapprove of. In terms of new stuff, I quite like the Secret Machines (who certainly don't sound particularly new). Bits of this and that, plus tons of the usual stuff.
