After the seminal alt-country outfit Uncle Tupelo decided to call it quits in 1994, the two main singer-songwriters of the group went on to form new full-time projects almost immediately. Jeff Tweedy went on to helm a little band you may have heard of called Wilco — who are arguably the first “mainstream” indie-rock band — and Jay Farrar formed the somewhat obscure, yet oftentimes brilliant Americana-alt-country-rock group, Son Volt.
Both men are genius songwriters in their own right, but unfortunately for Farrar (or maybe fortunately?), Wilco’s 2002 breakthrough album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and subsequent meteoric rise to the throne as kings of indie definitely took a bit of the spotlight off of him.
This tune is one of their heavier joints from Son Volt’s earlier days. In recent years they have delved into some much more rootsy stylings — adding elements of bluegrass, old school country and blues.
