The Baseball Project release "El Hombre/Harvey Haddix" 7" for RSD
Coming on Record Store Day 2012 is the first Euclid Sessions single recorded at Euclid Records NOLA.
The Baseball Project, made up of Steve Wynn, Scott McCaughey, Peter Buck and Linda Pitmon, perform “El Hombre” a rockin’ little number that should become a major hit in Los Angeles this summer.
The B-Side is “Harvey Haddix” a virtual who’s who from that small fraternity of pitchers that have pitched perfect games in the big leagues and the man who was left off said list. As far as I know, this is the only song that gives a shout out to former Indian and Brave Len Barker. The cover will be a lenticular 3-D design by artist Amelie Mancini.

you can pre-order the single here

i think i deleted the news archive.
by trying to update the news program i use for the site i most likely deleted the entire news archive. well seems the last backup i made was somewhere in 2008. i am truly sorry for that. seems we have to start over all again.

you can always visit http://web.archive.org/web/20110720171523/http://www.universaltrendsetter.org, they seem to have it backed up to july last year.

For superfan, finding partners for a supergroup is easy
By Barbara Mitchell
The Portland Tribune, Jan 11, 2008


If you’ve been to a local show by the Decemberists, Death Cab for Cutie or Wilco over the past four years – or if you’ve witnessed on stage Robyn Hitchcock, John Wesley Harding or KMRIA, the Pogues cover band featuring members of the Decemberists, during that same time period, you’ve probably wondered who the cool-looking guy is with the unruly hair, huge grin and sunglasses.


BY JIM CLARK

If you’ve seen the Minus 5, a Northwest supergroup of sorts that typically includes R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck, you already know that the individual in question is Scott McCaughey – one of the hardest-working and most beloved members of the Northwest music community.
