#21. Wilco – ‘Spiders (Kidsmoke)’

Wish spiders would fill out my tax return.

So sorry I haven’t posted for a week or so. Had some computer trouble. Still having computer trouble.

Anyway, Wilco are by no means obscure but this somewhat (early) Kraftwerk-esque jam isn’t exactly the well-put together if a little bit bland alt-country that they are best known for making. Wait for that change around the four-minute mark….they become almost Stones-y for a minute there without interrupting the hypnosis of that motorik beat.

While we’re on the topic of motorik…..check this out, Tweedy has some pretty interesting things to say, even if he’s the second-most unlikely person you’d expect to see in a Krautrock documentary.
