The Albany Times Union interviews Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy.

Q: Your electric guitar style has gotten progressively more "out" in recent years. What's it like having the king of "out," Nels Cline, in the band?

Flagpole interviews local Athens band, the Whigs.

FP: I'll be honest, I think the album title is one of the worst I've heard in a long time. I know it's the title of one of the songs, but it just seems overly confrontational and juvenile.

HS: Yeah, totally, both those. That's why we picked it. We like it.

PG: We didn't want a serious album title because, all in all, we are in our [early] twenties.
