Richard Swift, who has been busily touring the UK this summer supporting his recent release “Dressed Up For the Letdown”, made a stop on May 25th at the prestigious BBC program “Later… with Jools Holland.” Wilco – who also happened to be taping a session – was so taken with his performance that they invited him to tour with them in the US and Canada starting in August.

In other news, Swift is putting the finishing touches on the debut release by his kraut-y, electronic side project called INSTRUMENTS OF SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY. The project has been called a “stark and stunning picture of his artistic depth and studio wizardry… a perfect ambient, electronica recording,” by Black and White Mag.
