25 February - Key Club, Los Angeles, CA
I was fortunate enough to catch The Minus Five w/Robyn Hitchcock at The Key Club in Los Angeles last night. After a one-half hour set by an acoustic soloist from Ireland called Shane, Mssrs. McOi, Buck, Rieflin, and Ramberg hit the stage full-throddle. I don't have a complete set list, but many songs from the new album, "The Minus Five (a.k.a. The Gun Album)" were delightfully represented, including the rowdy set-closer 'Aw Shit Man'. Other songs I remember off the top of my head were 'The Days of Wine & Booze,' and 'Lyrical Stance'.

Meanwhile the Minus 5 is ready to hit the road in the US, next week they will start with a small tour on the west coast and play in Callifornia, Oregon and end it in Seattle, Washington. After that they take a few days off before starting a 3 week tour that begins at SXSW festival in Austin.
- You recorded most of the record with the "In Rock" line up, but like on previous Minus 5 records there are a lot of guests. How did they record their parts? Did they come over to the studio, did they send in their submissions, or did you go on the road to record with them?
A little bit of all these ways!
The tracks with Wilco (With A Gun and Hotel Senator) were recorded at Soma Studios in Chicago (on day off during R.E.M. tour), same place where we did Down With Wilco album. Peter and Ken came by too.
I recorded John Wesley Harding and Kelly Hogan's vocals on Twilight Distillery in their motel room when the Love Hall Tryst tour was coming through Portland.
Sean Nelson came over and did his ...
