wilco – am demos


happy friday peoples! firstly, i still havent sent out thank you’s and shit from the indiegogo campaign, but if you are reading this and you donated and want something from me, email me captainsdead at gmail dot com. secondly, been thinking about adding a bit more content to the site. granted its not awesome content, but trying to bring all my social shit centralized into one place. this may be a good idea or a bad idea? i have a tumblr acct, which my instagram and other random shit feeds into, but was thinking about incorporating all that into the site? thoughts? or should i just leave the site be as it is? i dont know if you care about seeing pictures of my kids, or me drinking beer or pictures of random crap i find on reddit, but maybe you do? so you tell me… anyway, here are some am demos…. keeping on the wilco kick from yesterday.

wilco – summerteeth demos

oh, wilco/tweedy, i miss you so much. i get a lot of shit from die hard, yet blind, wilco fans for saying that nels cline ruined wilco, and i usually only say that cause i know it pisses people off, or at least annoys them. kicking jay out of the band, ruined wilco. jeff needs a foil, not yes men, and jay was just that. not discounting any of the other guys participation or input in later day wilco, but me really thinks that jay pushed jeff and was willing to call him out on his bs. none of us really know what went down then, whats going on now, etc… but still, i miss that wilco. change is inevitable, but did it have to be so shitty?

wilco live on all songs considered, 2011

blow up wilco, and start anew tweedy, i beg of you. ok, you can keep john and glenn, but the other three dudes gotta go. if you were to tell me back in 94/95 that in 2011 i would no longer give a shit about wilco, i would have slapped ya in the face and kicked in the balls, or vagina. sadly, its gotten to that point though. still with that said, i dont think there was a finer band on the planet than said band from their inception till whenever the hell a ghost was born was released. the whole love, i will admit, is better than their last two, but still pretty forgettable. oh, and for the record, regarding this matter, there is no budging or hemming and hawing, so hold your brea jeff we can still be best friends, please come back…

yankee hotel foxtrot demos

top of the morning! during my trip to chicago i found myself listening to yankee hotel foxtrot over and over and over. i dont know if it was just being back in chicago that lead me to listen to it, or just that i hadnt listened to its entirety in a while. probably was a combo of both. anyway, these have been splattered across the internets for what 10 years now? but i figured i would post em just in case you missed out in the past. btw, while the cover says engineer demos, the batch that i have call this collection something different and of course i cant remember what. when i get home ill check on what they’re labeled. either way, enjoy…
