Sometimes we tell ourselves that the band is too famous, too important, that their label would never let them do a Take Away Show. We have a fantasy list: Radiohead, Tom Waits, Chuck Berry, Cat Power. Wilco. What if we tried to film them? for a Take Away Show The answer was unanimous and enthusiastic. I sent out an without believing it would come to fruition.  But we didn’t know if all of the members of the group would play; we were told that it would depend on where we filmed. They wouldn’t have the time to wander through the streets; it rained that day anyway. But they were prepared for us, had placed all their instruments and some amps in the back of the hall,

Above all, we got the entire six. When there is magic happening I feel like a kid. Tweedy’s voice without amplification, Cline’s attitude — who has to be one of the most elegant guitarists on the planet –, Kotche, visibly moved…listen please to Wilco – Normal American Kids

For the session, the band performs two songs from their latest album, Schmilco, in the Museum Speelklok’s restoration studio, dedicated to the upkeep and repair of the museum’s impressive collection of self-playing musical instruments. Shot at the restauration room of Museum Speelklok during Le Guess Who? Festival in Utrecht, November 2016
