i think i deleted the news archive.
by trying to update the news program i use for the site i most likely deleted the entire news archive. well seems the last backup i made was somewhere in 2008. i am truly sorry for that. seems we have to start over all again.

you can always visit http://web.archive.org/web/20110720171523/http://www.universaltrendsetter.org, they seem to have it backed up to july last year.

For superfan, finding partners for a supergroup is easy
By Barbara Mitchell
The Portland Tribune, Jan 11, 2008

If you’ve been to a local show by the Decemberists, Death Cab for Cutie or Wilco over the past four years or if you’ve witnessed on stage Robyn Hitchcock, John Wesley Harding or KMRIA, the Pogues cover band featuring members of the Decemberists, during that same time period, you’ve probably wondered who the cool-looking guy is with the unruly hair, huge grin and sunglasses.


If you’ve seen the Minus 5, a Northwest supergroup of sorts that typically includes R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck, you already know that the individual in question is Scott McCaughey one of the hardest-working and most beloved members of the Northwest music community.
