The Minus 5
“…Stroke Manor is first and foremost the work of a one-of-a-kind talent who, for all his setbacks, has not lost his gifts or his determination to make the most of them…this is a unique and truly powerful work.” – All Music
Northwest underground stalwart Scotty McCaughey suffered a stroke in November 2017, that nearly killed him and wiped his entire musical catalog, including material from The Minus 5, Young Fresh Fellows, The Baseball Project, R.E.M., and more, from his memory.
Less than three days after a doctor predicted he would never play music again, McCaughey began writing his next The Minus 5 album while still in ICU, unable to speak coherently, and with his right side just awakening from paralysis. Instead of wallowing in self-pity, he channeled his positive spirit and began to write down whatever incoherent thoughts crossed his mind.
He turned those stream-of-consciousness notebook pages into The Minus 5’ 13th album, Stroke Manor. And, after a couple of weeks in a hospital bed and recovery at his home in Portland, McCaughey recorded the album with significant contributions from Peter Buck, Corin Tucker, Joe Adragna, Jeff Tweedy and more.
Yep Roc Records released Stroke Manor on CD, LP and digital platforms on June 14.

"Listening to “Upside 85”—or frankly, any track by the Cali natives—feels like stepping into a wonderfully gritty postcard of the Golden State." - The Deli Magazine SF (write-up on Milk For The Angry's single premiere of "Upside 85")
"Oakland rockers Milk For The Angry have already established themselves as necessary and relevant contributors to the Bay Area garage rock scene...their abilities are unquestionable, and their music is electrifyingly exciting." - Lily Milman, freelance music writer
“Milk For The Angry’s Instagram video is awesome. ‘Get your cables out and charge your s**t!” - The A.V. Club
"San Francisco-based psych-band Milk For the Angry posted this charming video on their Facebook page this week. It shows a nice musical interaction between a couple of band members sitting on a stoop near the Oakland-Emeryville border and a neighbor named Cleopatra." - Andre Torrez, journalist for FOX KTVU 2 News
Milk For The Angry's dysfunctionally jaunty brand of melodic, guitar-drenched psychedelic rock has garnered audiences from their humble beginnings in the Golden State and onward.
Formed in 2017 by guitarist and songwriter Dana Lindström, they remained a studio band until landing on a line up of Cole Bailey on drums, Kyle Stringer on bass, and Jackson Langford on guitar. Together, the band plays steadily around the San Francisco Bay Area, having shared the stage with the likes of Post Animal, SadGirl, Ecstatic Vision, and New Candys.
Milk For The Angry had a brush with mainstream media when Fox KTVU 2 did an article about an impromptu jam they had with their neighbor Cleopatra coined "Jumper Cable Jam," quickly becoming an Internet smash.
