Overview
Here is the story of Wilco, a Chicago based band that has evolved from a country-rock act into an eclectic indie-rock collective that touches on many eras and genres in its music: 70s rock, Beach Boys-style pop, noise-rock and folk. No two Wilco albums sound the same This biography looks at Jeff Tweedy's early life in Illinois before starting Uncle Tupelo with Jay Farrar and examines that band's four albums. It covers the media attention surrounding Wilco's album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and the controversy around it. Although the record label rejected the album and dismissed Wilco entirely, it became their most successful album to date.
This book examines how Wilco's music has been inspired by a wide variety of artists and styles and has in turn influenced music by a number of modern alternative rock acts."
