Lots of guys from bands you have heard of before come together
to form The Minus 5
, a band that made an album this
year called Down With
That just there was my short exposition for this post.
The longer version would go something like
The Minus 5 are like, so cool! They sound a bit like
Wilco mixed with the Beatles mixed with The
and then I would prattle on for a while about
how much I love this album and how many other bands influenced it.
But you guys hate it when I do that so I will keep this post
short. In fact it's a pitty that I had to mention
Wilco at all. This will be the second posts in a row now. It makes me look
like some sort of
weird wilco-loving nerdbo. And i'm totally not.
Jeff Tweedy didn't even write the songs on this album (ok i
think he might have written 1 or 2). For the most part,
Wilco are just the backing band for The Minus 5, who are made up of
Peter Buck from REM
, Scott McCaughey of the Young
(McCaughey does the words and the singing
and is the main man in The Minus 5), Ken Stringfellow of The
and Sean O'Hagan of High Llamas
But none of that is as important as the fact that Jeff Tweedy has
got his fucking name into yet another post on this site with his contribution to this
album from The Minus 5.
Damn your evil alt-country genius. Damn it to hell Jeff Tweedy!
