  1. Seconded. I was definitely interested, but was still procrastinating when I logged back into the EU store to find them all gone!
  2. - The packaging seems kind of slight. I was going to ask about this. Pink vinyl version, bought in the UK, just comes with lyric sheet and clear inner sleeve. Is that the same for everyone? Not even going to mention lack of download codes (Oops!). No sign of the black & red/pink packaging shown in the GIF on band's Twitter feed. Outer sleeve is clearly designed for more inner packaging, so guessing it's maybe the same outer sleeve for a deluxe version that has more inside? Although can forsee album spine crumpling if filed on shelf full of vinyl. Minor grumble really though, enjoying the r
  3. Be interested to see how that compared to other shows on this tour for you, Paul (I'm only a very occasional poster here, but feel I can call you by your first name after Jeff's prolonged references to you)? That was the 5th time I've seen them, first in 1995, last 2010 (not sure why there's been such a long gap to last night) - and they blew me away. Best gig I've been to in a long time. They seemed to feed off an enthusiastic and packed audience (that had a much wider age range/gender split than was evident at Jeff's show at the Albert Hall 18 months ago). New songs all sounded great, love
  4. Been so long since I posted on here it's just taken me about half an hour to conjure my password from my memory, but had to come on to say what a show! Loved it. Haven't seen Jeff in any form since 2010 (geography issue, was a 5 hour round trip for yesterday), but the wait was worthwhile. Pecan Pie was brilliant. I'm a big fan of those early 'simple' WIlco songs. And then to be followed by Impossible Germany (which Jeff admitted just popped into his head) was a great surprise. Some of the banter was similar to what's been reported for last couple of shows - the bit about everyone leaving
  5. The funny thing is, they have met before, Jeff came into the studio on the Sky Blue Sky tour (I know, I recorded the version of John Wesley Harding he played). I have completely missed this, but have just had Dermot on in the car on the way back from the in-laws. Don't enjoy listening to him particularly as he's utterly bland to my ears, seems to like nothing more taxing than landfill 'indie' musically (even better if it's a cover version - he played 'Chim Chim Cheroo' by Turin Brakes on the journey home and I, correctly, predicted he'd love that). I really struggle to see what Dermot's appe
  6. Beaten to the punch while I fiddled around with my mobile! Set list was; Wilco (The Song) Shot In The Arm Bull Black Nova IATTBYH One Wing You Are My Face Impossible Germany Shouldn't Be Ashamed* Handshake Drugs Nothingseveregonna... Via Chicago I'll Fight Theologians I'm Always In Love Jesus Etc Walken I'm The Man Who Loves You Hummingbird (Encore) The Late Greats You Never Know Hate It Here Heavy Metal Drummer Monday Outtasite Thought it was a great show. Jeff's voice sounded good. Monday/Outtasite rocked like a bastard. *This may have been my request. Except I meant Should've Been
  7. Hey! I shouted for an AM song (though there were only about 4 of us who did ) The only point that I noticed John sounding a bit rough was on Can't Stand It - that was right at the end though.
  8. Somebody else will have to help with the setlist (though I can remember we began with Wilco (the Song)/Shot In The Arm/Bull Black Nova, and that Encore 1 was Poor Places>Spiders), but what a cracking show! My first Wilco show in 12 years so wasn't expecting the almost full Academy that I walked into, pretty vocal lot too, good atmosphere. Jeff wasn't happy with someone video-ing early on, but he came round after that - they all seemed pretty pleased by the end.
  9. Hmm, that is poor! Although I should say it's taken Amazon UK a couple of weeks to get hold of the vinyl version, so a few sales not included there I would imagine. Mine finally turned up this morning. Looks fantastic.
  10. I doubt it. Think they would have been announced by now if there were to be anymore. Bit concerned about when/if we might next see them in the UK after Jeff's comments in the latest issue of Uncut - a gig somewhere in the north would be much appreciated! Oh well
  11. Amen to all that! Gradually Learning is the finest British country song of all time, to my mind. It was my brother who bought the S/T album when it came out and when I went back home this Christmas I asked him if he could remember why on earth he bought it (not his sort of thing at all, you see). Sadly, he couldn't. Anyway, I pinched it and love it - it's currently on my iPod (as is one of Alan Tyler's solo albums). Saw them in the acoustic tent at Glastonbury one year too (either 93/94/95), they were great, but only a handful of people watching. Think they played a one-off re-union show
  12. Nice little report. Thanks. Seriously thinking about going to the Newcastle show on Friday, though have to admit that not only am I limited to 1/2 Autumn Defense tracks from the CDs that come with Word magazine, but also that I'm not completely bowled over by those tracks. Shame about Wilco not coming back until next year now - I don't really mind waiting as long as we get some sort of attempt to actually cover a fair bit of the country (rather than 2 London gigs + a festival or two) to make up for the farce of last November.
  13. Even odder, I'm pretty certain that my copy of BT was a US import purchased prior to the UK release date. Not that it changes the ranking, but I like to think of it as adding a little local flavour.
