Jeff Tweedy (the interview) | Metromix Cincinnati

Quote:
At last year’s Lollapalooza, the band wore Nudie suits, I think?
I’ve had one for a while, and had another one made. I like things that are sort of weird and out of context. I love country music—I don’t think Wilco’s a country band—but I thought it would be really fun to have one kickass set of stage clothes. We wear them very sparingly, because the fact is, most nights you put a Nudie suit on, you feel like an asshole.

Do you want to say anything about Jay Bennett, whether the man or his music?
I don’t have much to say about Jay. I really hadn’t been in contact with Jay for eight years now. Obviously there’s a lot of ambivalence there—from the unplugging of our lives from each other. The timing with that lawsuit is extremely unfortunate, obviously—I won’t comment on that. But overriding all of those emotions, it’s a confusing thing. The tragedy of it is certainly not lost on me, and I feel it very deeply. He was an extremely bright, and gifted guy, and I wish he was still around and I wish I could have seen him thrive and flourish, especially in the years he’s been out of Wilco. And I feel really sad [he] didn’t in the way he was capable of.

The Nudie suits are pretty cool. They wore them for the Tanglewood show last summer. Nels's is my favorite:



My whole set of pictures from that night is here.

The b-side to the "You Never Know" single is called "Unlikely Japan"and is my favorite song of theirs since Ghost.

Here's a stream of that b-side I'm obsessed with:

Wilco @ The Wiltern, Los Angeles 6/22/09 - Photo - Stereogum

Best THE WILC! song since Ghost. I mean it, guys. When have I ever lied to you?

Unlikely Japan is a pretty good tune, excited to get the record on vinyl next week!

I have next to no interest in You Never Know, but it was still a solid performance. The band is seriously looking as dorky as Coldplay at this point though.

I should probably pop back into this thread to say Wilco (The Album) is officially my favorite LP of theirs.

The show in Berkeley will be webcast tonight. 10 p.m. central, 11 p.m. east coast. I'm seeing them in Wilmington in two weeks and Lewiston in three, so I may skip it so I can be surprised by how the new songs sound.
