Uncle Tupelo

No news here, just finally purchased the Unlce Tupelo anthology and cant get enough of it currently. Its amazing what these guys have done for the whole alt/country genre.

They really put it on the map, not to mention the number of "spin off" bands that have come from them.....most notably Wilco


anyways.........agree with me, or else....

Hell yeah! I LOOVE uncle tupelo. My Wilco obsession prompted me to purchase the Anthology and I adored it almost immediately. I found Still Feel Gone and Anodyne for cheap used, but I'm going to hold off on the rest until the albums are reissued this spring. Bonus tracks and rarities...

Also, Shannon. You should download the following songs (the first three especially):

Graveyard Shift
Still Be Around
New Madrid
Gun
Black Eye

And if you want me to burn you a copy of the Anthology, let me know.

Hallelujah, I knew you would be on board here, yeah, the whole alt/country genre has been very appealing to me lately. I just picked up the Loose Fur EP as well and think its great! Seems anything Tweedy touches turns to gold.....

Flower....EP and SF forever.....

bear, you are wierd and thats what makes you fit in around here................

I like Uncle Tupelo, but like most things, I haven't listened to any of it in a LONG time.

I know, it's like I have all this stuff but haven't listened to it in months.

I'm in the same weird boat then. I have Wilco's YHF, or what ever the album is called. It's ok. That's as high of a praise as I'll give it. I dont dislike it, but I dont necessarily think it was worth of all the hype, let alone any.

To me, the whole "alternative country" thing kinda seems like a bogus genre to me. It doesnt seem either "alternative" or "country". It seems like pop. Most of those songs/artists are about as country as Elton John and as alternative as Shania Twain. In my book Ryan Adams IS Bryan Adams.

mofo, im a bit surprised at your generalizations....

while some of it does have more of a poppy sound at times what I feel separates it from pop music is the lack of radioplay and the indie labels you will find most of these artists on........

What separates it from country imo is the lack of twangy sound as well as the vocalists dont sound as if they were born and bred in the south for the most part.

What I appreciate most about it the songwriting and the great use of pure unplugged type instruments..........

so, i dont ask you to change your tune, just consider these points as well........ also.... Ryan and Bryan are as similar as Willie Nelson and Michael Bolton.....or something like that
