  1. He's the King of Queues, the Prince of Waits*, the Earl of Linger, the Duke of AirMiles, the Governor of Loyalty Points, the Chief Oratory Officer and Nos Correspondante to the Southern Hemisphere and exiled Brazilians. (Not a euphemism). (*Doesn't include Tom Waits)
  2. Such is the power of social media - the immediacy of reporting the minute after the band leaves the stage, the instantaneous catalogue of set lists and then... the five day wait to hear back from nos correspondante on how his travel home was screwed up by cancellations, delays, bad weather and bad service. #promisespromises Personally I can't wait.
  3. Obviously your Scottish trip avoided ‘the great unwashed’ in Glasgow then?
  4. That's a pretty big 'tweak' to the set we saw in Cologne two nights earlier. Pretty rock n roll for a seated boiled sweet eating German audience. (The gentleman behind me at E-Werk was eating Haribos through the show)
  5. (Now that I've finally got back into my account ...) On behalf of Scots everywhere I apologise for the absolute Weegieness of that fucking prat. Totally weegie behaviour. You can take the boy out of Glasgow, but you'll never put the soap on his back. Good show tho. In fact rather fucking excellent show and I wish I had more on the board
  6. Ye Gods! Happy bidet VC and all that sail in her! I’ve met some very good friends through here and on various Euro tours - you know who you are and I’ve got photographic evidence for future potential blackmail enterprise. As they say in Mrs Queeny’s homeland: oxters aböin !!
  7. All the articles and interviews included are reprints from previous editions of the magazine. The album reviews are new, but are inconsistent in tone and sometimes the historical context is contradictory as they've been passed amongst their journo pool and divvied up. My one real gripe is that the side projects chapter is woefully inadequate - it notes the Nels has made 'over a 150 albums' but fails to note any of them or give any context to his career outside of Wilco! (He's constantly referred to as 'the avant guitarist'). It's generally a 'nice thing to have' all in one edition, but
  8. I've been to Paul's house and I doubt ANYONE has more records...
  9. Much Impressiveness! I have a LOT of Wilco Tees, but actually none of those ones...
  10. "What makes this different from any other show and why does any of this matter? I don’t know, really. I guess I just wonder whether we’ll all be doing this next year, or in five years or in 10. Will I still be around? Will the band? Anyway, I suppose it’s a reminder to try and appreciate the moment because it’s probably even more fleeting than we realize." Appreciate the moment then get to the pub, it's your round FFS !
  11. They so should've kept the 'Black Shampoo' moniker, the merchandise possibilities alone would've funded a twenty five year career in bathroom technologies if the music sucked.
  12. 'The historic Eternal Father Of The Seal Chapel' sounds like a Masonic night out at the zoo. Presumably you get free fish as part of the VIP package. FFS!
  13. I actually saw that being performed (at the Roundhouse in London). But forgot to tape it.
  14. "This is a song we made a video for," Jeff said. "There aren't many. There will be few more, so thanks for watching." Obviously they can't afford Paul's fees (and rider)...
