Album: Wig Out at Jagbags (2014)
  • songfacts ®
  • This imagined exchange between gruff Milwaukee Bucks coach Scott Skiles and greedy point guard Brandon Jennings is one of several tracks on Wig Out at Jagbags that introduces horns to Malkmus' indie stew. Uncut magazine commented to the Jicks frontman that the horns sound like he's got a thing for early Chicago. Malkmus replied: "I been meaning to do a Chicago Transit Authority-style jam for years but it's tricky stuff. But I found the Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra (an online sound bank) for free on the web and bashed out an arrangement."
