The Uncle Tupelo Community!


yeah. uncle tupelo is probably my favorite band of all time, even though i'm only 17 and just discovered them about a year and a half ago. I even wrote a speech about them earlier this year for our county's academic decathlon competition. but i only have about 2 people to talk about them with, so i'm really excited about this community!

They rule. I actually used them as the inspiration for a two dimensional design project, where we had to design a playing card. I made them the King of Clubs.

Welcome! My situation is about the same as yours. I discovered them a couple years ago when all the cds got reissued. I think a whole new generation is discovering them now, and that is exciting!

There's a Uncle Tupelo write-up in this month's edition of Guitar World (Acoustic). Jeff Tweedy's on the front, and there's a review of Jay's new live album. There's a 1-pager about UT's influence and how "no depression" became No Depression.

It's cool to see people re-discovering UT, and enjoying everything that has branched off from it.

Yeah, I bought "March 16-20, 1992" a few months ago after finding out that Jeff Tweedy was in it, and they immediately became my favorite band. I also suffer from that same problem, not many of my friends know who Uncle Tupelo are, so I'm also excited about this community. Welcome!

"Down here where we're at
All we do is sit out on the porch
And play our songs, and nothing's wrong.
Sometimes friends come around, they all sing along."
