Another colaboration in the works
From "The Village Voice"
interview with Steve Wynn
....And the recording project after that:Steve Wynn:
“I’m doing a baseball record. I’ve wanted to do this for a long time, a record entirely about baseball, touting specific players or incidents, things like that. I’ve been talking about this for a long time now, thinking of ways to do it, and I met up with Scott McCaughey from R.E.M., Young Fresh Fellows, the Minus Five. We met up about half a year ago and I told him about it and it turns out he’s as big a baseball fan as I am and he flipped out, so we’re going to get together, Scott and myself and Peter Buck and Linda (Miracle 3 drummer Pitmon), and do the record in December in Portland because Peter’s got a studio there. It’s pretty convenient. And again, we’re going to write a lot on our own before we get together and then collaborate once we’re there. I’ll probably come back from Slovenia and watch the World Series and write during the entire Series.”

I never seen a couple Young Fresh Fellows before
Well they were walking down the street
I never seen a couple Young Fresh Fellows before
Well there was something about the way they combed their hair
and something about the clothes that they wore
Well they don't act so cool, they're just regular Joes
Well they're the Young Fresh Fellows now nobody knows them
I've never seen a couple Young Fresh Fellows before
Ahhh-hhhh Young Fresh Fellows!

Rock For Darfur Nov. 10
The United Nations calls it "the world's greatest humanitarian crisis." The US calls it genocide.
The people of Darfur have suffered for 4 years in a crisis that has left over 400,000 dead and 2.5 million displaced from their homes.
There is something you can do to help them: GO TO A CONCERT on November 10.
MySpace has brought its bands together to help send aid to the people of Darfur.
Join us('The Minus 5') at our show in Portland, Oregon at The Towne Lounge and a portion of your ticket purchase will go directly to the ROCK FOR DARFUR cause.
More than 30 other bands have united with Rock for Darfur shows that span the globe—all on November 10. So if our show isn't in your neighborhood, then go to "http://myspace.com/rockfordarfur
" to find one that is.
Help us send a strong message to the world that this crisis must end now.

Amalgam of Americana
The last time Scott McCaughey visited Lexington, he stood before 10,000 people at Rupp Arena.
The jovial Seattle songsmith will be the first to admit that they weren't entirely there to see him. The feverish October 1995 turnout was for R.E.M., the Georgia alt-rock institution of which McCaughey (pronounced McCoy) has long been an auxiliary member. McCaughey played keyboards, sang a bit, added some rhythm guitar here and there, and generally grinned like a kid having the time of his life, all night long.
