Killing Television


Wilco's live double album, Killing Television - Live in Chicago, is slated for release on November 15th. It is a 23 song collection of live Wilco recorded this past May at the Vic Theatre in Chicago.
The tracks focus mostly on the last two great albums, the Pitchfork perfect 10 Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and A Ghost is Born, but includes tracks from the older album's such as the opening track Misunderstood from 1998's Being There.

The tracks remind me of the Memorial Auditorium show they put on in Burlington last September with the Fiery Furnaces. They are one of the few bands in my book that retain the quality of their studio recordings and move beyond it (along with Built to Spill and Stereolab).

And for BIG fans, check out WilcoBase, which provides a baseball level of stats on all things Wilco (every set list, every time a song's been played, search live appearances by state, tour paths on Google Earth!).

    I thought I had your email but I don't, so forgive the comment that is not a comment. Can you email me, please? I have a question that I think you may know the answer to concerning the disappearance of trash containers in my town. Sorry for being off-topic.
