John Bonham to play drums on the next Minus 5 record? A Q and A with Scott McCaughey
The new Minus 5 album has been out for 2 weeks now, so it's the perfect time to sit down with Scott McCaughey and ask him to clear up a few things about this album.
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.

31 January - Secret show
you thought it was all over, it is now.
We were all sworn to secrecy.
a secret venue somewhere secret (did i mention it was a secret?). It was only a small shindig and friends, family and people who know such people were invited along with their door money going to Medicins Sans Frintiers.
The evening started with Robyn and niece, Ruby Wright doing some guitar and saw numbers, so 'Trains' was played virtually as an instrumental, just an oddly whispered last verse that floated over Ruby's saw. Then it was 'Trams Of Old London'. Scott joined them for a soft rendition of 'Back Room Of The Bar' and that was it as the 18th day took to the 'stage' for a very short set.
