Presently, I am going to my History of Rock lecture.
First, if you have Quicktime, you can go listen to Wilco's new album. As far as I can tell, the whole thing is there. The first track starts out slow and builds to a fuzzy, rocking kind of instrumental climax. I have high expectations for the rest.
I remember Jeff Tweedy, early in one of the best shows I've ever seen and fresh off the crashing success of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, asking "How many of you 'borrowed' our record?" Applause. "How many of you bought it anyway?" And the crowd goes nuts.
