Sir Nels is all over the November/December 2007 issue of No Depression magazine: both in Andy Moore's review of the 9/11/07 Wilco show at Overture Hall in Madison, Wisconsin and in a nice long interview in the "Most Valuable Player" column by Jesse Fox Mayshark. It is in the latter that contains pix of Mr. Chix Pox '07 wearing an awesome quasi-psychedelic 1970s-era Givenchy Shirt [pictured below], procured in Chicago at Jamie Issler's Clothes Optional, a vintage store on Clark Street.
Here are some glowing excerpts from Mr. Moore's live concert review:
"Lead guitarist Nels Cline looked like a modern-day Pete Townshend, dressed in high-water black pants with bright red socks showing. Cline's playing, angular one moment, shredding the next, gives very little warning about where he wants to take the song. But he takes it, all right. Nowhere was this more of a kick then when Wilco changed into a three-guitar band with Tweedy and Pat Sansone framing out the melody of "Impossible Germany." The incredible Cline, off to the side and lost in his fretwork, shimmered out bright, sunny notes, feasting on the meat of the music served up by his bandmates."
