Wilco – Kingpin (Live in 1997)

This video of “Kingpin” was filmed on Marble Mountain, near Cornerbrook, Newfoundland. That’s Canada, people! This is the original Wilco lineup, with Jay Bennett and that other dude whose name escapes me – the other multi-instrumentalist. They are so young, they could still be living in their parents basement.

But this is a pretty rockin’ version of “Kingpin”. I remember seeing them play a few years later in New York City, and they played this. Jay Bennett does some great solo work. RIP.
