Glenn Interview - Signal to Noise - Summer 2006

Recommended Posts

Jsut came across this. Haven't seen any mention of it.




"Seven months later, in December 2000, Kotche and his wife went to see Tweedy perform solo at Chicago's Abbey Pub. And hour before the show, Kotche was summoned to play. The two went back to Wilco's recording loft, and gathered what they could. "This is Glenn," Tweedy said when the lights came up. "He wanted to be on the guest list, and he had to pay for it."


"I played this whole show...with a drummer who theoretically didn't know any of the material," Tweedy later explained to writer Greg Kot, "and it felt more fluid and exciting than 90 percent of the shows I'd done in the last three or four years. That was too much information to ignore."


That is one of my handful of solo show recordings. Never realised it was literally the first time that they had hooked up (I haven't read the Kot book, nor feel the need really).
