Loose Fur is an American rock band comprising Jeff Tweedy, Glenn Kotche, and Jim O'Rourke. They have released two albums, Loose Fur (2003) and Born Again in the USA (2006). Both records have been released on the Drag City record label. The genesis of Loose Fur occurred in May 2000, when Jeff Tweedy asked multi-instrumentalist Jim O'Rourke to play with him at Chicago's Noise Pop festival. A few days before the festival, Tweedy and O'Rourke rehearsed together at the Wilco loft, and O'Rourke invited his friend, drummer Glenn Kotche, along.
