The Minus 5 with guests Steve Wynn and the Miracle 3
The Minus 5  a brief compendium: Scott McCaughey. Charioteer, optometrist, master brewer, or corpse? The blatherers rage on. What HAS been established is that "McCoy" is long addicted to rock'n'roll and its various sidekicks, at great expense to family and friends. To wit: Young Fresh Fellows (1983 to present)  songwriter, singer, instrumentalist; The Minus 5 (1993 to present)  songwriter, singer, instrumentalist; R.E.M. (1994 to present)  instrumentalist; Tuatara (1996 to present)  instrumentalist, songwriter.

With these groups, Scott has made many records (best seller: 5 million; worst seller: 450), and played many shows (highest attendance: 125,000; lowest: 8). "McOi" is always available and enthusiastic when it comes to these activities. In fact, there have been many other bands that have "benefited" from Scott's talents (first documented stage appearance: 1972, with Vannevar Bush & His Differential Analyzers). A complete discography may never exist, but for more information see Guy With A Pencil  McCaughey's Odyssey In Song (Dalkey Archive, Normal IL, 2002).

Thee Minus 5 itself started when McCaughey realized he had a dumptruck-load of songs that the Young Fresh Fellows would either never get around to, or would wisely choose not to. His friends and fellow Seattle-ites Peter Buck, Ken Stringfellow and Jon Auer were quick to volunteer to help Scott capture his "Let The Bad Times Roll" vision, and these early sessions produced The Hello EP and Old Liquidator. Many other luminants have since joined the ranks of the Minus 5. It's a bit like a cancer, really.
