So, I wasn’t able to post a Video Fridays installment this past week, the first time missing my self-imposed deadline in so long I can’t remember the last time it happened. Anyway, to make up for the absence, today I’m posting over two hours of music split between just two YouTube videos. I haven’t mentioned … Continue reading Video Monday: Wilco vs. Wilco
Seems like it’s just a guitar kind of day. Hot on the heels of my guitar-related post this morning, comes this tweet, concerning a guitar that has sent me into a shameless fit of materialistic longing. I.Want. https://twitter.com/#!/wilco/status/180038346997895168
Anyone who has been reading Fish & Bicycles for a while will know that I’ve blogged multiple times about my two favorite bands: Wilco and The Flaming Lips. What, then, could be better than the two bands coming together…at least in part?! Not much. Well, until today, it was just one music geek’s dream, but … Continue reading Wilco Meets The Flaming Lips!!!
WAY back in August 2010, I wrote about how Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy was producing an album for soul music legend Mavis Staples. Meanwhile, Wilco’s been touring with veteran English rocker Nick Lowe, after having covered Lowe’s 1977 song I Love My Label earlier in 2011, in celebration of the founding of their own label: … Continue reading Video Fridays: Wilco, Mavis, Nick, and the music circle
This is GREAT fun for a HUGE Wilco fan like me. http://twitter.com/#!/TheCurrent/status/144093754368856064
If you’re a Wilco fan, like me, then yesterday was a whole lotta fun, full of news and videos. Back in June, I wrote about their upcoming eighth studio album, The Whole Love, and the first song I’d heard from the record. Now, with The Whole Love due out in a few weeks, on Sept. … Continue reading Wilco News, including Black Eyed Peas cover?! Really?!
I’ve written numerous times about my favorite band, Wilco, and I write again today fairly ecstatic about a new single I’ve heard this morning for the first time. I’ve loved almost everything frontman Jeff Tweedy and the band have done over their remarkable 17-year career, and how often can anyone say that about a music … Continue reading Wilco Will Comply
Back in January, I wrote about my love of the band Wilco, the influence soul music has had on Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy, and the exciting news that Tweedy was producing an album for legendary soul/gospel singer Mavis Staples. Well, the album, You Are Not Alone, will be released September 14th, and Pitchfork has posted … Continue reading Wilco Soul Revisited
Well, since I wrote about Wilco yesterday, and it took me 82 posts before writing about my favorite band, the least I can do is to have this week’s Video Fridays installment feature Jeff Tweedy and the gang. As a bonus, Leslie Feist guests for this very sweet duet from the most recent Wilco album, … Continue reading Video Fridays: Wilco
I actually had to search Fish & Bicycles just now because I couldn’t believe that I’ve never written here about my favorite band: Wilco. Sure enough, as hard as it is to believe, this will be my first post on the subject, and it’s ironic since it was inspired by news concerning a non-Wilco album … Continue reading Wilco Soul
