The Autumn Defense – Fifth

As the sidemen in Wilco, John Stirratt and Pat Sansone are somewhat invisible behind frontman Jeff Tweedy. It’s his band; Stirratt and Sansone just play along as bassist and utility multi-instrumentalist, respectively. They’re quiet operators, but they play pivotal roles that have come to shape the band’s grandiose sound. Professional musicians of the highest order, Stirratt and Sansone yield to Tweedy’s artistic ideology most of the time, saving their own creative kicks for The Autumn Defense.
