iTunes is offering the live version of "Monday" as a bonus track and it's the best version I've ever heard. Horn section

That's odd. I just checked iTunes and it says it's on Kicking Television. Is it a secret song?

It's not showing up on my cd-rom on disc 2, and disc 1 is out in the car and I'm too lazy to go out and get it.

Nope, it's not on the discs. It's an iTunes exclusive bonus track.

I also have "How To Fight Loneliness" I stole from someone on the Wilco board . It was offered as a presale free download and it's soooooooo good. It's a m4a file and I can YSI if you want...

m4a is just an audio file that you can only play in iTunes, so if you've got iTunes, you'll be all set

Anybody with even the slightest interest in Wilco must buy this now! I am now pissed off that I have never seen them live. And I even lived in Chicago for 5 years.

Luckily, they are road dogs and you will have plenty of opportunities to see them! I don't see them outgrowing their current venue size any time soon either so you won't miss out. Sometimes I wake up remembering that they toured with Radiohead a few years ago and I had the opportunity to see them at Red Rocks and didn't go and it's like a bad bad dream, 'no no no tell me that didn't happen, tell me I didn't miss my two favorite bands at Red Rocks together..."' but you know what? The current line-up of Wilco is the best, IMO. I rag on Jay Bennett but he was definitely brilliant; still, the current line-up took Wilco to a whole new level IMO. This is the Wilco to see.

If you haven't seen the documentary "I Am Trying to Break Your Heart," you MUST.

I know I need to see that. I have the Learning How to Die book and that was pretty fascinating, although I have heard it may be a little too pro-Tweedy, with all the Jay (Farrar and Bennett) bashing.

I read somewhere recently that I Am Trying to Break Your Heart showed Tweedy at his most aloof (and pain-killer addicted) and Bennett at his most anal so that it isn't a very flattering picture of either of them but I didn't know anything about the politics of the band when I saw it. I just thought Bennett was irritating while Tweedy seemd generally more likeable (though no doubt a control freak underneath the gentle soul exterior). But I also recognized that I probably wasn't seeing the whole story and that seeing a band in a crisis in the studio isn't really an accurate reflection of anyone. Still, it's a great film. The bonus tracks of Tweedy performing solo are just incredibly wonderful. I think it ranks up there with the best R&R documentaries.

Now a question. I've never listened to Son Volt. They're coming to my town (and hardly anyone interesting comes to my town) so should I go see them?

I don't have any albums but have listened to some of them. It is good stuff, but much more rootsy than Wilco. Jay Farrar has stayed Alt-Country while Tweedy has moved on. So if you like Alt Country (such as Uncle Tupelo's Anodyne), then you should go.

Would it ease your mind to know that they toured with REM, and not Radiohead?

GINA

I noticed it is the birthday of another Wilcon fan today...

Wish her a happy birthday if you can.

Thank you. I can finally let that one go.

I FINALLY found a download of Kicking Television last night and I'm really looking forward to listening to it.
