Leroy Bach leaves Wilco

In case you aren't familiar with that name, Bach's the one that stood behind the pianos at concerts and generally had this weird stoned but determined look on his face. Anyway, he's apparently left Wilco. I don't mind so much, but, as much as I like Jim O'Rourke, I hope this isn't an opening to put O'Rourke in his place. To be completely honest, I'd be happy if Jay Bennett came waltzing back in.

I'm a big Wilco fan, but all I can really say to this is "ehh...life goes on." It never seemed (to my ears/eyes) like Leroy had much creative input with the band. Wilco has been and will continue to be the Tweedy/Kotche show.

I doubt Jay Bennett will return due to the whole "Tweedy and Stirratt hate Jay" issue.

I can't imagine O'Rourke becoming a permanent member of Wilco in addition to a supposedly (?) epic (!) solo record and a new Sonic Youth slated for release this year. The dude has enough on his plate as it is; I hope he doesn't spread himself too thin and put out sub-par material.

Speaking of O'Rourke, what is the name of that soundtrack he did? You mentioned it awhile ago.

Oh yeah, sucks about Leroy, too.

He did the music for Love Liza. To me, the soundtrack was perfect. I'm not sure it's available to buy, though.

fallow, I hope you're right about O'Rourke. Maybe everybody will be satisfied with his presence in Loose Fur and not put in him Wilco

mike, I agree with you about Tweedy/Kotche show, but I think that Jay's influence can really be felt on Summerteeth, especially. He even claims to have written "My Darling" himself. I also know he had creative input on Yankee Hotel Foxtrot.

God, I wish Bennett would come back. I really think the band will suffer without him. He may not have done much actual writing, but he was such a huge influence on their sound. And, frankly, the album where he exerted the most influence - Summerteeth - was their best by leaps and bounds (IMO, anyway).
