Wilco


Wilco é uma banda de rock alternativo de Chicago, Illinois formada em 1994 por ex-membros do Uncle Tupelo. A formação da banda mudou frequentemente, contando hoje apenas com o vocalista Jeff Tweedy e o baixista John Stirratt da formação original. Os outros membros atuais são Nels Cline (guitarra), Pat Sansone (multi-instrumentista), Mikael Jorgensen (teclado) e Glenn Kotche (bateria). A música do grupo tem como inspiração uma grande variedade de artistas e estilos, incluindo Bill FayTelevision, e tornou-se influência para várias bandas de indie rock. A banda continuou com o estilo country do Uncle Tupelo em seu primeiro álbum, A.M. (1995), introduzindo posteriormente elementos experimentais, como o rock alternativo e o classic pop.

The Muffs foi uma banda de punk rock californiana formada em 1991. Liderada pela cantora e guitarrista Kim Shattuck, a banda lançou quatro álbuns de estúdio nos anos 90, além de vários singles como "Lucky Guy" e "Sad Tomorrow" e uma versão de "Kids in America", de Kim Wilde, que foi usada na trilha sonora do filme "As Patricinhas de Beverly Hills". Desde 1995, a banda teve a seguinte formação: Kim Shattuck (vocal/guitarra), Ronnie Barnett (baixo) e Roy McDonald (bateria). Após um longo hiato começado em 1999, a banda lançou um novo álbum em 2004, mas depois efetivamente se separou. Quase uma década depois, os três membros principais da banda se reuniram e começaram a se apresentar novamente. Seu sexto álbum, Whoop Dee Doo, foi lançado em 2014.
