Latitude 2009

Countdown to Latitude...Wilco

WILCO

Uncut faves Wilco take the stage before Damien Rice on Friday at Latitude, with peerless guitarist Nels Cline now a full-time member, having first joined the band for their extraordinary ‘A Ghost Is Born’ LP.

Wilco’s accomplished ranging across alt country, rootsy blues and gloriously ravaged rock calls to mind classicists from The Blasters to Springsteen and Neil Young and, although the band is very much an ensemble, it’s Cline’s fluid, admirably underplayed style and Jeff Tweedy’s heartfelt, philosophical lyricism that combine to make Wilco so treasurable.

Latitude takes place July 12 - 15 at Henham Park, Southwold, Suffolk.
