I'm Not Gonna Get Caught

Quick question regarding Wilco's "Pot Kettle Black."

Is it just me, or is that beginning little bit of feedback supposed to mimic the sound of a tea kettle whistle?

This just occurred to me yesterday. At first I thought it was really clever, but now I'm wondering if I might just be a few years late to the (tea) party.

Wilco - "Pot Kettle Black" (live at Lollapalooza 2008)

*Not sure if you can really hear it on this live version -- oh well.

I suppose it's possible. ALthough, it kind of sounds like something we might have dreamed up in a haze on Will's red couch.

GL mentioned that he was surprised one of us hadn't proposed the theory yet.
