>On A Private Beach In Michigan


Another lengthy track, this time ten minutes of brilliance from Wilco. I love some of their stuff- Heavy Metal Drummer also on this album for example- but the more country-ish, piano-led balladry does less for me. This is a huge guitar track with relentless motorik drums, great sounding guitars and funny noises, and a huge stadium power chord chorus bit. It’s fantastic, although what it’s all about I have no idea. Why spiders and kidsmoke? Is Michigan well known for it’s private beaches? No matter- when this is playing, it’s totally absorbing and not a second too long.
