The Baseball Project

What happens when two great songwriters decide to focus their talents upon their favorite sport? You get the highly entertaining debut disc from The Baseball Project, Volume One: Frozen Ropes and Dying Quails. The album is the brainchild of Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate, Steve Wynn and the Miracle 3) and Scott McCaughey (Young Fresh Fellows, Minus 5, and R.E.M). The two musicians were longtime fans of each other's work throughout the 80s but never met until the early 90s. Wynn recalls, "I honestly think the first time we met was side-by-side at the urinals at the Offramp in Seattle when I played there in 1992." He adds, "Scott didn't try to shake my hand."
Stream the entire album now courtesy of Yep Roc. It will be in stores on July 8th. They performed on Letterman last night with drummer Linda Pitmon and R.E.M.'s Peter Buck as the rest of their band. Peter performed at Madison Square Garden a day earlier. Watch the Letterman video below....

That scream by Scott at the end belies all the pissy nitpicking here. This is a great song performed with passion. And the drummer is Steve's brand new wife, so hands off.

Peter Fuck looks like Peter Falk. and he certainly doesn't need another drink. a few years ago, he got blasted on a British Airways flight and threw a yogurt at one of the stewardesses. no joke.

gee, that story about Buck & the yogurt is real 'inside' info. You must have connections with the entertainment industry.

Steve and his band the Miracle 3 (which includes his lovely wife) are playing 'Days of Wine and Roses' at Maxwell's on July 25th. It will be epic.

Peter Buck could kick your ass in about half a second.

People who say mean things about Peter Buck make me mad!!

Peter Buck is the fucking man, and is so much more worthy of the air breathed by Anon 1:27.

"peter buck is a man???" WTF. you sound like a republican frat boy. peter buck would laugh at you.

^ I met Peter Buck a few times, and no laughing ensued. Then again, he did mention how much he hated hipster douchebags. Maybe he was thinking of you?

Posted by Dr. Bruce Banner | June 23, 2008 10:12 PM

no. he was thinking of macho "men" who walk around with their dicks out like you. you sound like a pussy though, so go fuck yourself.
