Nottingham review - furry black legs and a spicy goatee
not a great start... i'd done a recce earlier to find the gig and failed, got the wrong emtrance, so i bumble around until i have to ask..

once inside it all looks familiar, the front row at least. on a hunch i ask if they're from here and they are.. here and murmurs. i won't give names away, but hello guys!

the set was much the same as Birmingham, which is no complaint. The biggest difference was no Morris on vocals/percussion/drums for the end.

Tonight the troublesome 12 string wasn't even tried and Peter's amp worked first time, which is more than can be said for Robyn's.

The Gun Album reviewed by 3 imaginary girls
The Minus Five - The Gun Album The Minus Five "The Gun Album" {7.9}

By Chris Estey - threeimaginarygirls.com

The Minus Five is a project of Seattle longtime legend* Scott McCaughey, who you can at times see taking Metro to his local gigs, as I did a couple summers back (when he opened for Jon Langford at the Sunset Tavern). I had no idea that the scruffy dude I was sharing the #15 with had accomplished so much, including playing with the iconic Young Fresh Fellows since 1983, forming The Minus Five a decade later, and recording and touring with REM. More importantly, I didn't really know how great a songwriter he was till I saw him open for Langford and this album is even more convincing of his talents than that wickedly good appearance was.
