Wilco Label News

According to Wilco’s official website, they “have agreed to terms with Nonesuch Records (www.nonesuch.com). More information about all of this next week.” I’m not exactly sure what this means, but the people at Pitchfork interpret it to mean “Wilco have now signed to Nonesuch Records, the experimental subsidiary of Atlantic. So one would presume that, sometime early in 2002, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot will be released…” Nonesuch releases all sorts of crazy stuff, from the Buena Vista Social Club and Emmylou Harris to the Kronos Quartet and Laurie Anderson. Hopefully, they will treat Wilco with the respect they deserve.

By the way, when will the hacks at Pitchfork do their fucking homework and stop saying that Jim O’Rourke produced the new album, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot? He mixed it. He did not produce it.

  1. Go back and read Pitchfork’s reviews of Being There and Am. While they gave much credit to the guys for Summerteeth, they panned their first two disks. Anytime I start thinking that all you guys in here at Glo No are rock snobs, I pop on over to Pitchfork and read a reveiw.

  2. Yeah, I’ve noticed that when they don’t seem to understand a band they revert to cryptic little analogies and long overly wordy stories to lead into the piece. Well informed writers can use those methods to enhance a piece, but they sometimes make themselves look worse than the band they’re reviewing.
