It’s always nice to take a trip down the two-way street of love that connects Wilco to the Numero Group. Wilco holds the distinction of having curated their own Numero compilation, Wilco Spins The Numero Group (2010). Numero holds the distinction of having disc jockey’d before and after Wilco shows, here and abroad. This time, it’s Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy making the trek into the Numero universe with his sons/bandmates, Spencer and Sam. The occasion: Tweedy’s edition of the Amoeba Music web series “What’s In My Bag?” In this edition, Spencer Tweedy selects Eccentric Soul: The Outskirts Of Deep City from the millions of LPs that populate the Hollywood superstore.
Pull Quote: “I love Numero Group and we usually get all the stuff that they put out—and I especially love their Boddie Recording Company comp.”—Spencer Tweedy
And also, not to get too deep into responsible parenting, but I really appreciate how Spencer first identifies the Boddie roster as “B-list,” only to have his father gently redirect his phrasing into “less successful.” Aw! You guys!
The whole Wilco gang will be hosting the Solid Sound Music and Arts Festival in North Adams, MA June 25th-28th. Our buddy and Best Show maestro Michael Slaboch will be out there programming Solid Sound Radio 88.7-FM, so you’re sure to hear some bottom-of-the-dial Numero gems there as well. Thank you again to the Tweedy family for your support. Let us know what else you guys need, okay? You know where we live.
Bonus Track: Our own Rob Sevier gives the “What’s In My Bag?” series the Numero Group treatment.
