I guess it must have been real.

Matt

Over the past month I’ve been swept up to the stars on my brother Dan’s magic coattails. Now he’s returned me gently to the ground. I would almost doubt that it really happened, except that somehow we’ve emerged with a live concert album to show for it.

Dan & Matt Wilson 3/26 Minneapolis concert album available for download.

If you can get past my nervous chuckling on these tracks, you may find some music to enjoy in there. Thank you to all who attended, and to all the talented people who helped produce and record the show.

And, of course: Thank you, Dan!

Now, I’ll see you all at the Guthrie!

Don’t tell Dan…but YOU are the brother that I came to see!

With all due respect to Dan, it seems to me that most of the yelled requests were for the brainchildren of Matt.

Well, technically we don’t really know who wrote “Rebecca”...

I think the reason that it sold-out in mere seconds was because of you, Matt….maybe your coattails aren’t quite as long as Dan’s but they are covered with precious jewels that glitter and shine…

Not much to add, Matt.  Your tunes soared.  The old chestnuts filled us with nostalgia, the current tunes awed us, and the brant new one left us wanting more.  Here’s to hoping that you do it again, and again, and again.  Maybe John will join you, too.

See you at the Guthrie.

Fools! Don’t you see the trap? He’s a conniving manipulator, but I won’t fall for it. Matt knows full well that he’s the aural oracle, the enlightened lyricist, the melodic thaumaturge, and that mom likes him best, but he feigns this subordinate posture and spurious humility, a sham of grace and deference, just so you’ll bathe him in lavish adoration! He extorts adulation like a withering leech through trickery and reverential masquerade. Nice try Matt. You know all too well the magnitude of your gifts, quit the baiting, you leech!

So Matt wrote Rebecca?

I just have this _hunch_ that Rebecca and the Toolmaster attended the same primary milking school. I’m thinking Jill with aqua makeup might have been a year older.

Matt, you’re a songwriting freak. Nobody writes a song like “Alone”. Or “Reception” for that matter. Or “Landing”...


p.s. Sorry about the “freak” thing. I just didn’t want to call you a genius in front of all your friends. Or mine.

...or “Descender!”...

..or “Late” or “Travel Plans!”

or “Jill Can Drive” or “Raking Service…”

Posted by ss 2010 04 08


..or “Gone Gone Gone”...

Posted by Kara 2010 04 08

...oops?

...hehehe….or The Crane…!

That was awesome stuff from the both of you.  You two sounded like you had fun up there. 

“Dan, the balance of this gig is assured…”

That is the antithesis of bankrupt.  Your wings haven’t melted.
