The Gun Album reviewed by 3 imaginary girls
The Minus Five - The Gun Album The Minus Five "The Gun Album" {7.9}

By Chris Estey - threeimaginarygirls.com

The Minus Five is a project of Seattle longtime legend* Scott McCaughey, who you can at times see taking Metro to his local gigs, as I did a couple summers back (when he opened for Jon Langford at the Sunset Tavern). I had no idea that the scruffy dude I was sharing the #15 with had accomplished so much, including playing with the iconic Young Fresh Fellows since 1983, forming The Minus Five a decade later, and recording and touring with REM. More importantly, I didn't really know how great a songwriter he was till I saw him open for Langford and this album is even more convincing of his talents than that wickedly good appearance was.

Rock and Roll Pest Control - YFF Seattle review 2 + Setlist
I hope the Young Fresh Fellows are happy. I'm never going to be able to go to another rock show ever again. Nothing I could see would even come close to the amazing rawk show I saw the other night.

First up was Llama. I had high hopes for them, seeing how this was the first Scott Sutherland band I've seen since the Model Rockets broke up. I hate to say it, I wasn't too impressed. The songs were okay, and the playing was good.... I just didn't find 'em all that interesting

Girl Trouble, however, were awesome! I wish we would have picked up their CDs at the club, since they'll be hard to find here in Portland. For awhile there, I thought the lead singer might be Rob Morgan of The Squirrels... but I was wrong. Although I couldn't hear the vocals too well, the onstage antics made the show entertaining. The lead singer began the set fully clothed, and ended the set topless. At one point he had a bag of small toys that he was throwing in the audience. Jason got a small snowman kalidascope. They ended the set with "Walkin' the Dog" ala the Sonics, with the lead singer standing in the audience. Coming back to the stage, he knocked over Jason's water glass, but it was all in the name of rawk.

Rock and Roll Pest Control - YFF Seattle review 1
So, last night -- there aren't too many nights where you can say you've seen the Worst Funk Band In The World play for 2 hours straight. But those nights? Those are the best nights.

The first act was LLama, Rusty Willoughby's new band -- I actually dug them quite a bit, despite not really being into Flop. They got a new record out on Book -- I'm thinking I should have picked it up the previous night at the Dial-A-Fight, but whatchagonnado. After that were Girl Trouble, and I have to say I wasn't a fan. But the kids seemed to like them.

But THEN. The FELLOWS. Tad didn't have his wok, but he did have a pipe! And the Caramel obsession from the last night had carried over to hilarious results (Scott falling over and rolling on the floor laughing at Tad; later, Scott asking "Does this even HAVE a punchline?" "NOOOOOO PUNCHLINEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" "Really, 'cause I need some sort of payoff for this." "Nopeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee").

Book Records "Dial-A-Fight!" review
I went to the Book Records Dial-A-Fight last night and it was pretty awesome. I ended up having to leave early (I go to work early in the morning, so...), but I DID get to see the Fellows. It was a real short set, about 15 minutes (after all, there were like 80 zillion bands), and right after the Chris & Tad show (which I came a little late to -- didn't realize they were STARTING at 9pm, though it was doors at 9...), which was pretty loose, fun, and awesome.
