stop shopping, stop buying things
Yesterday I was over at Casa de Punk, who identified the rockin' song at the end of the Fahrenheit 9/11 trailer as this track by 60's psych-rockers Ten Years After, which can be found on the A Space in Time LP. It's great hippie, "what's wrong with our country" stuff, with a searing guitar solo that works really well with the quick-cutting visuals from Michael Moore's new documentary, in the theaters shortly. I'm looking forward to it.
Last summer, Wilco played "Kicking Television" during one of the encores @ Rock The Garden 2003 at Mpls' Walker Art Center (currently under expansion), and I recall it rocking myself & the garden quite effectively. So when I saw that the track was absent from the band's upcoming A Ghost is Born, I was a bit miffed. Despite Amazon's alluring offer to stream the track after pre-ordering online, I decided to "seek" out & "acquire" the track for myself. The recorded version isn't quite as good as I remembered, but I'm happy to hear it nonetheless. A Ghost is Born comes out a week from today.
