Neko Case Interview

Last week, two of Chicago's major newspaper music critics, Greg Kot (rock critic for the Chicago Tribune and author of the Wilco biography "Learning How To Die") and Jim Derogatis (music critic for the Chicago Sun Times and key witness in the R. Kelly trial) interviewed a girl way out of their league when they got the lovely Neko Case on their radio program Sound Opinions. Not only is Neko totally stunning, remarkably talented, and the proud owner of a singing voice that would put most American Idol contestants to shame, but she's also got a great sense of humor and modesty to spare, as evidenced in this interview. Quite a catch, that girl.

In addition to talking about her newest recordings, she performs three tracks from the album Middle Cyclone- the title track, "People Got A Lotta Nerve," and the Harry Nilsson tearjerker "Don't Forget Me" with that other female insurgent country Chicagoan and Aqua Teen siren Kelly Hogan and guitarist Paul Rigby.
