Earlier this week on Fresh Air, Kevin Whitehead reviewed Scott McCaughey’s latest album — The Minus 5. Whitehead went on at some length about McCaughey’s obsession with guns, his at-times-nonsensical lyrics…and his great melodies. Hard to disagree. If I was all *that* into music…I’d even consider buying the album (and still might).
Whitehead played clips from a number of the songs on the album. One line in particular struck me as quite clever and amusing: “Last night I had five White Russians, and two of them were human.”
