The Minus 5 + The No Ones

The Minus 5 are yet another band featuring Scott McCaughey and Peter Buck, where a three-decade collaboration started. The friends have shared vans (with occasional bus) with R.E.M., Tuatara, Baseball Project, Filthy Friends, Tired Pony, CeDell Davis, Robyn Hitchcock/Venus 3, No Ones and no doubt a few others. But The Minus 5, with their floating (and frankly ridiculous) membership, remain the core of what they do, which is whatever they want, most of the time. Over the course of at least 13 (?) albums, 30-plus singles/compilations, and countless live line-up fluctuations, the band-that-wasn?t-meant-to-be-a-band have toured with both Wilco and Tweedy, and appeared on Conan O?Brien and The Late Show with David Letterman. Their next release ? out this June ? will be Calling Cortez (Neil Vol. 3), a continuation of tributes to the greatest, Neil Young, starting with 2020?s Scott The Hoople NEIL (Vol. 1). One would assume that there will be a Vol. 2 as well. On the new record, Neil songs share equal space with songs written by Scott McCaughey, but inspired by Mr. Young. The album features contributions from Minus 5 favourites like Kurt Bloch, Joe Adragna, Mike McCready, Linda Pitmon Wynn, Debbi Peterson, Jenny Conlee-Drizos, Jeff & Spencer Tweedy, Casey Neill, Jim Talstra and Pauly Pulvirenti. The No Ones? upcoming album, My Best Evil Friend, is released on Yep Roc on 31 March 2023. The No Ones are Peter Buck, Scott McCaughey, Arne Kjelsrud Mathisen and Frode Str?mstad. Consisting of members from R.E.M., The Minus 5, The Baseball Project and I Was A King, the bi-continental collaborators share their third collection of songs, My Best Evil Friend, paying tribute to the artists that inspire them and populate their turntables. Through their upbeat ?60s-style indie sound infused with psychedelic flourishes, The No Ones honour Nick Lowe, Pamela Polland, George Harrison, Jenny Lewis and Phil Ochs, among others. The group enlisted contributions from friends Debbi Peterson (Bangles), Ben Gibbard (Death Cab For Cutie) and Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub) for backing vocals, Victor Krummenacher (Camper Van Beethoven) on bass, and strings from Marin Stallemo Bakke. AGE RESTRICTION: 14+. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. PLEASE NOTE: The ticket price includes a 50p venue levy
