Another reason to listen to Wilco

As if you don’t already have enough reason to listen to the band Wilco, allow me to add another.

They just sent me a presale notification for an upcoming movie about the band. I followed links to the band’s site, and resulting web store, and eventually found this–a statement of MITUSA-ness:

We do our best to ensure that Wilco apparel is top quality and preferably 100% USA made. When we are absolutely certain that the items in question are 100% USA made, we indicate as such in the description. If it is not specifically stated, that means the item in question is likely made from USA materials but possibly assembled elsewhere (but NOT in a sweatshop). Note that we strictly monitor merch quality and origin in our effort to bring Wilco fans the best items possible. Whenever possible we also try to use locally-sourced materials in Canada, the EU, the UK, Australia, Japan, and elsewhere.

Remember when your parents got mad at you for listening to rock ‘n roll? Now the stuff gives you a social conscience.
