Wilco has always been on my radar. I got ‘A.M.’ back in the late 90’s, and saw it as a great alternative to the more pop-friendly Gin Blossoms and the like. Wilco had a more gritty sound, but was still very appropriate for driving around with the windows down. I still have them on Spotify rotation. Great tunes for when I’m in the office.
Fast forward to today.
Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy gave Huckberry a rare interview and backstage pass to his adopted hometown of Chicago, all documented in an online field guide. Visit the guide to dig into all the anecdotes and moments captured.
In addition to the interview and tour of Chicago, Wilco fans will be interested to find:
- Tweedy’s insight into the songwriting process in advance of Wilco’s forthcoming album Schmilco, which just came out on September 9, 2016
- Huckberry’s dedicated shop featuring some of Tweedy’s favorite gear, exclusive Wilco products and autographed vinyl
- Behind-the-scenes tour of storied Wilco studio, The Loft:
Enjoy, folks. This is good stuff.
