The Minus 5
The Minus 5 is a rock/folk/pop collective captained by Scott McCaughey (see: “Scott McCaughey c/o “the internet”, for more info) with Peter Buck onboard as navigation officer. By design from it’s inception, the line-up for the recordings and live appearances is completely fluid, depenedent on musician availablitly, whim and wind direction. Collaborators regularly feature other members of R.E.M. (as it once were), Wilco, Decemberists and literally hundreds and hundreds of other recalcitrant comrade combos. Everyone gives their all, and no one need to be counted on.
