Sammy Tweedy was backed by his brother, Spencer Tweedy and his father, Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy as he sung a Pavement classic on Saturday night’s episode of The Tweedy Show. The Tweedys combined forces for a cover of “Cut Your Hair” within the hour-long Instagram Live program.

“Cut Your Hair” came towards the tail end of Saturday’s The Tweedy Show and featured Sammy on lead vocals, Spencer on drums and Jeff on guitar. The first song performed by Jeff on Saturday was a rendition of “Should’ve Been In Love” from Wilco’s 1995 debut studio album A.M. featuring Spencer on percussion. Other highlights from the episode included Jeff’s version of “Airline To Heaven,” a take on “If I Ever Was A Child” sung by Jeff to Basil (the dog) and a cover of Mazzy Star’s “Fade Into You” featuring Sammy on lead vocals.
