I've had numerous requests to post more Young Fresh Fellows shows and thank you for your response. I'll have some up soon, but in the meanwhile here's the very first performance from Scott McCaughey's "other band", The Minus 5. Scott formed the band with Peter Buck in 1993 as a pop collective with a revolving lineup of friends and musicians. The band is still going strong as Scott continues to divide his recording and touring time most frequently between the Baseball Project, The Minus 5, Young Fresh Fellows and as a solo artist with a recent tour of Spain.
For this show at the Crocodile Cafe in Seattle, the Minus 5 opened for The Silos. Scott and Peter performed together for the first five songs and were joined by members of The Silos for the last three. This show is also notable because a couple of days after this show The Silos were involved in a van crash in Wyoming that took the life of guitarist Manuel Versoza.
