The Minus 5
The Minus 5
THE MINUS 5 began life as a side project of the Young Fresh Fellows' Scott McCaughey, who formed the band in 1993. McCaughey designed The Minus 5 as a pop collective, and each record the group released featured a new lineup. Throughout these releases, he worked most frequently with R.E.M.'s Peter Buck, who was featured on the group's eponymous debut EP, which was only released through They Might Be Giants' mail-order record club, Hello Records.
Lewi Longmire & The Left Coast Roasters
LEWI LONGMIRE has built a reputation as Portland's multi-instrumentalist "go to guy." In the years since relocating to Portland from Albuquerque, New Mexico, he's been included on shows and recordings by many of the Northwest's finest bands and songwriters. He's worked with national acts Michael Hurley, Victoria Williams, Blue Giant/Viva Voce/The Robinsons, Dolorean, the Minus 5 and Tara Jane O'Neill as well as local luminaries AgesandAges, Fernando, James Low, Denver, Pancake Breakfast, Quiet Life, Little Sue, Casey Neill, The Portland Country Underground, Michael Jodell and the Freak Mountain Ramblers. More recently, though, Lewi has taken all the things he learned from working with these fine performers and has been spending his time leading a roots rock/americana band of his own, singing the songs he has written himself. The group owes much to the American tradition of good songs played with high energy, deep roots, and an unpretentious sense of fun. Their sound finds the connection between the basement feel of The Band, the raspy blue-eyed soul of Joe Cocker, the desert space of Giant Sand, the "without a net" deep space improvisations of the San Francisco ballrooms, the punk abandon of The Stooges and the quiet contemplation of Neil Young playing solo.

Helping achieve this sound are THE LEFT COAST ROASTERS, a band of stalwart Portland musicians: Bill Rudolph (bass and vocals) played with the Crackpots and Little Sue for years, driving their home crowd into an energetic frenzy with his low tones; Ned Folkerth (drums) has toured the world over with many groups, including the midwest's Pinetop Seven and Portland's Caleb Klauder Band, always laying down the perfect groove to cure whatever ails ya; and rounding out the 'Roasters on lead guitar is Dan Eccles, who has electrified ears both locally and around the world as a member of both Fernando and Richmond Fontaine.
