What is a Wilco?

I consider myself pretty hip. I have partied with Eric Davis at a club. I rented Dave Chapelle’s Block Party. I read www.whatsgoingoninchicagothisweekend.com. So I am down. But I have a HUGE confession. I have never heard a song by Wilco. Never. Until now. My co-worker gave me a couple tracks to sample. Shit! Betty Serveert without all the dutch bullshit. Or Cowboy Junkies with a dude. I knew three things about Wilco. 1 – The lead singer used to be in Uncle Tupelo, and that band makes me laugh (not as much as Mr. Blotto). 2 – He or his wife used to run the Lounge Ax. I saw Ani DiFranco there once. I didn’t get laid. 3. 40 year olds love em. 4. They put the Marina Towers on their record. But I will say this – the tune I’m listening to? I like it. It’s new. “It reminds me of a grungy Steely Dan.” You can use that on the back of your CD Wilco. You are welcome.
