The Minus 5 ‘Down With Wilco: A Tragedy IN Three Halfs

The Minus 5’s ‘Down With Wilco: A Tragedy In Three Halfs’ is one of my favorite LPs.  It is bathed in catchy refrains with harmonies that melt the ears. If you can get your hands on this gem, throw down your loot, then send yepROC Records, Scott McCaughey, Peter Buck, Jeff Tweedy, John Stirratt, Glenn Kotche, and Leroy Bach a thank you note. Just the way they get down at the end of ‘Where Will You Go’ and then transition into ‘Life Left Him’ is worth your scratch. You may ask yourself what’s my reward for seeking out this musical treasure?  Your kid will someday thank you for having such excellent taste when you kick the can.
