Summerteeth was Wilco’s third album and their first to chart in the UK. Unlike previous releases, the long player was heavily overdubbed in the studio. It was the first sign that Jay Bennett and Jeff Tweedy were taking their americana sound into a more creative place. As a result of perpetual touring, Tweedy’s relationship with his wife was deteriorating. The brilliant ‘She’s A Jar’ ends with the startling lyric “…she begs me not to hit her”. Things were bad; the music was anything but.
