Edie Brickell (New Bohemians) well, my wife is a huge fan too
The Monkees (my secret shame)
Michael Nesmith (solo) actually turned a lot of people on to this
Beach Boys (especially 66-74, which is where most fans DON'T like them)
Fishbone
Seal

there are a ton more I'm sure

I'm about the only Wilco fan that I know of.


and they would be one of those bands that i don't get

What's not to get? Beautiful melody, amazing lyrics, unbelievable musicianship?

Jeff Tweedy is the most inventive lyricist since Townes van Zandt, in my opinion. The melodies make my spine tingle, and as for Nels Cline....well, he is one of the most amazing jazz guitarists on the planet.

Tell me what you DON"T "get". My guess, Lefty, is that you probably have not heard very much Wilco stuff. Am I wrong?

Hey DO2 & Mitzi,
When I was around eleven & twelve years old, l loved Seals & Crofts. I mean really,really loved them. To this day, whenever I hear a mandolin, I think of Dash Crofts.

I liked Wilco up until Summerteeth.
After that I just don't give a crap anymore.
I still buy their albums and scratch my head as to why everyone
gets such a hard on for them.

Christ, I can stand in my basement and produce 20 mins of feedback
but Tweedy does it and the critics gush!. WTF was that all about?

But that's just me.

D-E-V-O. I love em. Duty Now for the Future - one of my alltime favorite albums

My friend Versace is a huge, huge Replacements fan. I've never heard of anybody who likes them, not one except him.

Have you heard Sky Blue Sky? Their is not one moment of feedback on that album. Very much back to their folky roots. Absolutely beautiful album. There was only a little of that on A Ghost Is Born, but that was an album chocked-full of great songs.

Actually, Ghost is the album that contained that "tune" (called "Less Than Everything") that was essentially 15 minutes of feedback and other studio noise. I actually wrote a review for the Birmingham News for that one. In that review, I questioned how a record label would let an artist get away with something like this, citing the fact that John Cale pioneered the "noise as art thing" over 50 years ago.

Summerteeth is my favorite Wilco album. I put that one right up there with some of the types of things the Beatles and Pink Floyd did.

No, I do not like EVERYTHING that Wilco puts out. I give them points for creativity and originality. Even if you don't like all or any of their stuff, they are doing something different that recycling the old 12 bar, I-IV-V for the 4 millionth time.

If I want to alienate my wife when we entertain, I can put in some of Col Bruce's pre-ARU stuff (Late Bronze Age, Stained Souls, etc). This has the desired effect...but I know a lot of people (well, some) who dig it, so that might not count?

I think some of us are missing the topic "Artists nobody likes but you." Hasajay quit clowning. I doubt you like Liberace and Pure Prairie League's "Two Lane Highway" is a classic. Of course you could be right. Most people only dig Amie.

Oh now Chuck... ( Lee) Liberace is a bad ass on the keys.
Pure Praire League..damn love that band pre-Vince Gill. Two Lane Highway...what a great LP. Harvest, KC Southern, Pickin to Beat The Devil, TLH, Memories, I'll Fix Your Flat Tire Merle, ...this LP has some great guitar licks on it and goes pretty much un-noticed.

...and its Hasmajahbi !

The song that you are thinking of is called "Less Than You Think". This is actually a complete "tune" that transcends into static experimentalism a la Neil Young & Crazy Horse. In fact, this album pays homage to Neil quite a lot ("At Least That's What You Said" comes to mind). Sure, there is some feedback at the end of a song. If you do not like it, as the majority of *sober* people probably do not, then simply press the "next" button, and voila!....the last great song appears. You cannot tell me that this album is not a fantastic one. There are twelve amazing pieces, one of which happens to conclude with some feedback. Don't let that overshadow your opinion of the work as a whole.

As I stand atop my soapbox:
I'm disturbed by your question about why the "record label would let an artist get away with something like this." I think you answered your own question by using the word "artist". That is exactly what a label SHOULD do. They should keep their artistic ideas to themselves. You sign an "artist" because you appreciate what they do, right, and not becuase you think they will appeal to the masses and will sell millions of records (I say this with my tongue planted firmly into my cheek, of course)? Believe it or not, some record labels believe in artistic integrity. Take a look at Nonesuch Records roster, and tell me that record sales outweighs artistry.
