Let's Fight by Wilco

 

 

Facts

Total Plays 3 times by 1 Artist

 

First Played in Concert July 13, 2006 by Wilco at The Playhouse, Fredericton, NB, Canada

Most Recently Played August 6, 2006 by Wilco at Lollapalooza 2006

Strange! I had a recollection that that song was played about 6 times that summer. Well, 3 times does make me feel really lucky to hear it.

 

I was at a living room show back in 2009 where different groups would perform with him. One group did Let's Fight but he had no recollection of it and he stood there and watched the group perform it.

That’s such a cool story! Hmm. From that story it sounds like it was a song that was never recorded and just tried out live the 3 times. I also think Let’s Fight is the last unreleased song to be played by Wilco in concert. Sky Blue Sky definitely had quite a few “b-sides”, so that made it even stranger that it never showed up way back then.

Nugs just released the July 13, 2006 Fredericton, New Brunswick show on their streaming service. This show is really cool because it has Let’s Fight.

 

One of my Tweedy Show comments was asking Jeff what happened to this song, but Susie most likely didn’t see it. I am curious though if it was ever recorded.

 

As per the liner notes to the nugs release, this song was first attempted during the "A Ghost Is Born" sessions, and then re-tried during the "Sky Blue Sky" sessions.  They never produced a satisfactory take.

Thank you for that information!

 

I just looked at my Nugs app again and I still have a blank screen for the liner notes.

The liner notes are now linked to the nugs.net show page.   Those notes include information on the song "Let's Fight".

They just added a show from July 31 2002 and it is quickly becoming my favorite bootleg.  I'll use the description "perfectly perfect pre-perfect Wilco". Jeff is covering a lot of ground on guitar.  It sounds like the recording rig is either in Mikeal's piano or at sometimes tied around John's neck...either way two great locations to record from. There are some very quirky versions of some now live show standards. Jeff still has his young, cigarette voice. Lots of fun and very raw by today's standards for their live shows. Check it out.

The Camden, Maine show from July 3, 2000 has been added today to Nugs.net

 

Most notable about this show is that it features the first band performances of Ashes Of American Flags & I’m The Man Who Loves You, if Setlist.FM is to be believed. The liner notes are not showing up on the app right now.

Also notable that it was my first Wilco show!

I have a recording of it but I'm guessing this one is better. I'll give it a listen.

I did some detective work to see which new show was released to Nugs today and it looks like they dropped the 2 shows from Montclair, NJ in April 2010. I haven’t seen any official announcement today on social media, but I don’t recall seeing either of these before.

Show notes state those were released in March 2020

This is the second time that someone can see something on Nugs that I can’t. The other incident was show notes for the latest show that showed up blank in the app. I just chalked that up to it not being available yet on the app, but on the website. 
 

Re: Montclair - When I click on show notes in the app, I only see “Second set is an acoustic performance. Read more about the show here.” And there’s no link there. Funnily enough on the website it doesn’t even mention “read more about the show here”. 
 

I was checking for a new show today because there was a FB post this past August that mentioned a new Wilco show on the last Wednesday of every month. I knew that new shows seemed to appear near the end of a month, but didn’t know of a particular day of the week until I saw that post. 
 

Anyways, I now see a show that pops up under the apps new show listings. It’s a show from July 21, 2009 in Royal Oak, MI.

That Royal Oak show they just released today was, in my opinion, the best show of that year. It was a one-off and the band was on fire that night. Fwiw.

This month’s Nugs release is from September 18, 2012 in Santa Fe, NM. It’s great that they drop these when there isn’t a Tweedy Show.

Ah, they're getting into Roadcase territory now - there were at least 6 shows released from that particular month.

 

Hopefully next month they'll dig a little deeper in the vaults.
