Have they stopped posting these shows to youtube?  Or are they in a different place?  The last entry on Susie's youtube page was from October.

 

Apologies if this has been asked and answered 10 pages ago!

Susie addressed this on an episode last week. I’m paraphrasing, but I believe the gist of it was that they were encountering audio issues when they were uploading the episodes to YouTube. I seem to think that YouTube was blocking the audio, but maybe there was another issue.
 

She also mentioned that she was going to try to upload them again. I noticed that there was an upload recently on the account and yes, it’s from October. YouTube be crazy!

It's really funny to me that Sima asked Jeff to show how to play Chinese Apple when she showed me how to play the riff back in high school.

Oh that's a great backstory! So she wanted to remember how, or maybe check that her way was right.

How'd you know her in HS?

She was a grade lower than me and Wilco wasn't especially popular with high school students in the early to mid 2000s (shocker, I know). I think it was one of those things where someone said something along the lines of, "You know that one band you like? There's someone else here who actually likes them too."

This has literally never happened to me regarding Wilco.

Is this the slang meaning of the words from the prison men and lady men, as we say in Sweden?

I tell Professor from Stockholm to watch this one on YouTube delay as special treat!

 

Welfare!

I've never been a member of the grammar police, but this "may or may not" idiom is worthless.  Literally everything and anything (that does not defy the laws of physics) "may or may not" happen on the show Monday.  Jeff may or may not announce that he's leaving Wilco and joining the Bottle Rockets.  Spencer may or may not announce that he's going to be the new drummer for the Waco Brothers, President Obama may or may not be a special guest on Monday.  It's the same as saying "anything's possible."  Grrr.  Ok, now I may or may not feel better.  :D

So what we just learned is that Chez may or may not be a member of the grammar police.

The Tweedy Show Monday March 8 Episode 156

# animated intro on screen.
-- Susie is saying "hi" to everyone and the doorbell rings, so Spencer goes to answer the door to see who it is. 
-- Spencer says that you're not going to believe who it is. John Stirratt & Glenn Kotche walk into the living room and all of the clients are going bananas in the comments. John & Glenn wheel in Glenn's gong which Jeff can't believe. John says that he learned that Uber drivers don't like gongs. 
-- Jeff explains why John & Glenn are in town. He says that they're just getting started on a record. 

-- Glenn wants to play a new song, but Jeff says that they can play the first song that he & John played in Wilco. 
I Must Be High (w John Stirratt on bass & backing vocals and Glenn Kotche on drums)
-- Jeff & Susie comment on how long Glenn's hair has grown over quarantine. Jeff says that Glenn's hair is like Dave Grohl's which Glenn has a funny reaction to. 
Tried So Hard (Gene Clark cover sung & performed on bass by John w Glenn on drums & Jeff on backing vocals)
Country Disappeared (for Chris Saladino's birthday. John on bass & backing vocals. Glenn on drums)
-- John jokes that they should do the song again. 
-- Susie asks them how long it's been since Wilco has performed a show. Jeff says it's a little bit less than a year ago. 
Everyone Hides (John on bass & backing vocals. Glenn on drums)
-- Sammy points out that there are 1,500 clients watching right now. 
Jesus, Etc. (John on bass & backing vocals. Glenn on drums. Jeff on electric guitar)
-- Jeff & Susie tell John & Glenn some of the more exciting Tweedy Show moments including the stinkbug incident and when the family heard something crash in the basement.
-- Jeff, Susie, John & Glenn discuss discontinued candy bars. 
You And I (John on bass. Glenn on drums)
-- John jokes that he didn't do Feist's part because he didn't want to upset her fans.
Candyfloss (John on bass & backing vocals. Glenn on drums. Spencer on opera ending)
-- John & Glenn get a kick out of Spencer singing the opera ending of Candyfloss.
-- John asks if the family riffs or uses talking points. 
-- "don't talk about the gong in the room". 
-- John thinks that Peter sounds like a young man. 
I Got You (At The End Of The Century) (John on bass & backing vocals. Glenn on drums)
-- Jeff explains why he stood up during the song. He was "moved by the rock to stand erect."
-- Jeff talks about recording the new Wilco record. Jeff explains that in January of last year they started making a Wilco record. Jeff says that they got about 1/3 of the way through getting some songs tracked. Jeff explains that they set those songs aside and have started anew, but those 'older new' songs will probably end up on the record. Jeff mentions that they're starting with the rhythm section to get tracks together for everybody else to play on once everything gets completely safe. It was easier to manage a smaller group  to test out the new songs this way. 
-- Susie shows Lemmy to John & Glenn.
Be Not So Fearful (Bill Fay cover. John on bass. Glenn on drums)
-- Jeff jokes that that's all that they can play and wants to leave us wanting more. Susie thinks that his speech was horrible. Sammy requests a new song. 
Hints (new song that Jeff says is titled Hints for now. Features the lyrics "There is no middle when the other side would rather kill than compromise." John on bass & backing vocals. Glenn on drums)
Reincarnation (Roger Miller cover. John on bass & backing vocals. Glenn in drums)

 

Well, that was an amazing surprise! I thought that Peter was going to be the surprise guest. I didn't even think that we'd have half of Wilco. This should be a shock for those who come here to read the recap before they check out the episode.

On a serious note, I just want to express what a treat it was to hear these three guys playing as a trio. We all know that Jeff and John go back nearly 30 years now so it's easy to think of Glenn as being relatively new but this year will mark his 20th in the band, and you could tell last night how much these three guys have grown together over the years... there's a lot of respect and friendship there, which as a fan, I love to see!

While I think Wilco's strength is in how great all six of them are together and I hope we don't ever see a line up change again, I did really enjoy hearing the songs stripped back to a three piece. We get to appreciate Jeff's guitar work when he plays solo but it was really cool to hear Glenn's drumming and John's bass and backing singing in this stripped down environment. I hope this is something they do a bit more of in the future, maybe if they do a scaled down SSF this fall, it could make a cool Sunday afternoon performance... maybe.

Most enjoyable Tweedy Show (for me) in quite some time.  Not surprisingly, Jeff seemed energized playing with John and Glenn.  Loved it.

And they're working on a NEW RECORD! (I know he said that a while back, but the boys are back in town).

 

Also, if anyone has any other videos to share of this performance last night, I really missed out.

I really enjoyed the performance, besides the obvious elation of (half) the band being reunited. They trio of them should go on tour. Tri-co?
