We could break up, or we could GO on TOUR together
-A second and final Minus 5 date in the UK has been added, they will perform at the "Colchester Arts Centre" in Colchester on July 11. We reported previously The Minus 5 will play Dingwalls in London on July 10, and this is right after the tour of the Minus 3 backing up Robyn Hitchcock.
-Robyn and the Minus 5 will also going to Japan later this year, playing two shows in Tokyo on October 8 and 9 at the Fab Club.
-On August 5, The Minus 5 will be opening for John Wesley Harding at the Tractor Tavern
in Seattle.
-And last but not least, the Young Fresh Fellows will be playing the Azkena Festival in Vittoria, Spain on August 31. And It’s really confirmed this year.

Minus 5 in the UK
After the "Robyn Hitchcock and the Minus 3" tour "The Minus 5" will perform in London. John Ramberg will fly over for this show and join the band for their show at Dingwalls, which was the scene of a legendary concert in 2001 by the Four Croakers (Scott McCaughey, Ken Stringfellow, Robyn Hitchcock and Mike Mills.) There might be a second date added on July 11, but that still has to be decided upon.
More info on the Japanese tour of Robyn Hitchcock and The Minus 5 will follow later. Also stay tuned for a possible Robyn Hitchcock and The Minus 3 tour in Australia.

Slow Music on Tour (Bill Rieflin, Peter Buck,...)
Two evenings with Bill Rieflin and Peter Buck: Last week at the Tractor, the two full-time members of R.E.M. powered the Minus 5, fronted by former Young Fresh Fellow Scott McCaughey, through a set of non sequitur originals and garage-rock classics. The energy level was a notch or two below a furniture-breaking party, but it was probably the best frat-rock being played anywhere in Seattle that night.

This past October, the pair joined to create a much different sound when Rieflin's Slow Music sextet played three sets at the Crocodile. Rieflin, a veteran of the Telepaths and the Blackouts, not to mention industrial rockers Ministry, gave up his seat behind the drum kit to Matt Chamberlain to explore echoing piano chords and synthesizer textures, while Buck's folky clangor gave way to something more subtle, and King Crimson/Bowie vet Robert Fripp added "triggered sounds" to his trademark guitar whir. The sense of open space in the music recalled—without sounding like—'70s Miles Davis, or the long, inexorable build of an Art Ensemble of Chicago performance.
