The Minus 5: “My Life as a Creep” (2006)

Scott McCaughey of Young Fresh Fellows has been heading up the Minus 5 since 1993, which makes it a little more than a side project. In fact, on their self-titled 2006 LP (nicknamed “The Gun Album”) it’s more Alan Parsons Project, with a stellar lineup of contributors including Jeff Tweedy, Peter Buck, Colin Meloy, Ken Stringfellow, John Wesley Harding, Kelly Hogan, and even Mott the Hoople alum Morgan Fisher.

It’s┬ámostly downer lyrics with bright, perky┬ámelodies, a combination I’ve never been able to resist since the days of ABBA.
