Wilco formed in 1994 out of the ashes of alt-country group Uncle Tupelo.

Jeff Tweedy and John Stirratt remain the founding members of Wilco and since 2004 the line-up has been stable.

The early days of Wilco were shaky. The Uncle Tupelo split other members formed Son Volt and originally had more success than Wilco. Longevity won over for Wilco and now the band is eight albums in under their own name, a few albums under the belt with Billy Bragg and creative side-projects for both Stirratt and Tweedy.

John Stirratt sat down with Paul Cashmere from Noise11 to tell the Wilco story.
