Wilco Get Animated With Popeye

(Gibson) Wilco are going Gorillaz. Kind of. In the alt-rock band's latest music video for "Dawned on Me," the Chicago gents joined up with King Features to get animated beside Popeye, Olive Oyl, Bluto and the whole Popeye crew. Watch the Darren Romanelli-directed video at the bottom of the page.

Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche recently checked in with the Los Angeles Times blog to talk about his experience replacing Wilco's original drummer, Ken Coomer, in 2001. "Those guys at that point would be in the studio at 5 a.m., and then I had my first drum lesson at 7 a.m. out in the suburbs, so I was getting no sleep," he explained. "When they asked me to join, I had no expectations of anything. I thought, 'Here's this band, and I don't even know if I'm the right fit.'

"I was wary of touring that much, and I thought the fans would hate me because I replaced Ken. Then the label dropped us. The future was pretty uncertain. People always say, 'That must have been so crazy,' but you know what? Not really. It was a functional situation. It was business as usual. This is how bands are. There's usually a couple freaks and there's a lot of drama and things don't always go the way you want them to go. Worst-case scenario, we would have been on an indie label." more on this story
