Jeff and Spencer Tweedy Play Sukierae Songs Live

From a batch of songs Jeff Tweedy of Wilco had written to celebrate his wife Susan, came the new band Tweedy with Jeff and his son Spencer. The title of the double album comes from her nickname Sukierae. We’ve got a full band session today from Tweedy with songs from Sukierae and a cover of an unrecorded song by the late Chicago songwriter Dianne Izzo. What does Spencer think of Wilco? How did Jeff come to make him the drummer in this essentially solo project? Questions asked and answered today and check out the video of Tweedy on the World Cafe.
