I like YHF a lot but never really understood why people find it so special. Just a really nice, simple set of songs. Nothing groundbreaking. Before I heard it I read about all the white noise, static etc thread into the songs and songs blurring in and out of each other to sound like a radio tuning…dont hear that, the noise seems a little random and pointless
Yeah I’m with you really. Maybe they meant the model?
Did seem them live at EotR and enjoyed it. I like YHF for a quiet background album.
think I remember you saying they were the worst band ever or your most hated band or something.
they’re a wonderful spring/summer morning band. been digging back into Star Wars and Schmilco this week. even their lesser albums harbour so much to love.
The Yankee Hotel Foxtrot documentary is free to stream here for a week:
I’ve not watched it before, so am looking forward to it!
Despite the fact that @jordan_229 doesn’t stop going on about how much he hates them!
This record was really good.
Excellent documentary, you’re in for a treat!
I was listening to Star Wars today and it tends to be my goto one these days. I think it’s the best of their recentish ones.
Thanks very much for posting this. Just watched it - really enjoyed it! Now off down a Wilco rabbithole…
I enjoyed it, although I got a bit bored of some of the live songs that were played of (presumably) older songs that I mostly didn’t recognise. Would have loved more YHF songs.
I ended up reading more about Wilco on Wikipedia afterwards and the whole story of Wilco seems like it would be a lot more interesting than just that one YHF period. I somehow wasn’t aware about what happened to Jay a few years later, so that was a shock to me.
Have just finished Jeff Tweedy’s autobiography and heartily recommend it to anyone with even a passing interest in Wilco.
