Dissing Wilco

Postby sab » Wed Nov 20, 2002 2:15 am

I love it when I hear a good Wilco slam. Here's one from everybody's fave pop music critic, Jim DeRogatis of the Sun-Times, from a panel he was on last Thursday at Columbia College Chicago.

"How exciting is hanging out with Wilco? It's like watching paint dry."

That's a sort of lame putdown. I was hoping at least for a "yo mama" snap... DeRogatis shouldn't have to resort to cliches, should he?

But the real point was that he gets to hang out with Wilco, and you schlubs can't - right.

But knowing DeRo, I would have imagined instead of paint drying he say something like - "...it's like waiting for soup to boil." Get it? - he's fat

A far more clever (and truly insulting) DeRogatis insult: "...Indiana homeboy Rose seemed to have genuinely bonded with Minneapolis-bred Tommy Stinson, though for anyone who ever loved the Replacements, the effect of seeing the punk-rock bassist covering Guns songs was akin to watching Charles Mingus jamming with 'N Sync."

I agree with that one - Tommy Stinson and Axl Rose onstage together is a sure sign of the apocalypse...

I'm sorry, but that's a pretty lame slam. How about "How exciting is hanging out with Wilco? It's like listening to a grad student wax rhapsodic abour Sartre... It's like watching a basketball game played with flat balls... It's like bowling without the beer."?

"It's like seeing Vortis play"

hmmm. i don't give a shit about the excitement factor of hanging out with wilco (ps. they're probably a lot more fun without some lame-ass guy who uses worn expressions like "watching paint dry").

at any rate, it's not a wilco slam. i wilco slam would have to comment on how much their MUSIC sucks. which it does. like music made by pampered art college students.
