Just picked up Live at the Fitzgerald CD last night at a used book store - can't believe someone would get rid of this for the measley 25 cents most used book stores give you for used cd's. I was in Minnesota when the wu started out and have forgotten just how much I liked them (haven't heard them or seen one of their shows since leaving Minnesota in 1999).
In light of the recent thread concerning DSO, I thought I would add that the wu "sound" like the dead but only with original material (of course, there is the requisite and occasional dead cover). By sound, I mean to say that these guys have a crystal clarity to their tones and sounds, the grooves they hit are very dead-like, and just the overall feel is dead like. Long story short, if you haven't heard these guys, "Live at the Fitzgerald Theatre" is a good place to start.
Don't know what they are currently up to, but the above CD (circa 2001) was a good snap shot of the band I remember seeing many years ago . . . happy listening to whatever is on your ipod, in your cd player, 8trac . . .
