Scott McCaughey (Young Fresh Fellows/Minus 5) recently teamed up with fellow baseball fanatic Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate/Steve Wynn and the Miracle 3) to form The Baseball Project along with Peter Buck (Minus 5/R.E.M.) on bass and Linda Pitmon (Miracle 3) on drums. They’ve got a pretty great album called Volume One: Frozen Ropes and Dying Quails coming out July 8th on the fabulous Yep Roc Records. 13 hits, every single one of ‘em about baseball. You can read all about it and stream the whole record over at Yep Roc.
The Baseball Project played the Late Show with David Letterman last Friday night. Don’t feel bad if you missed it, I did too but fortunately some kind, technologically savvy fan posted it to YouTube - so here you go.
