Bio

Portastatic is the solo project of Mac McCaughan, who is also known for his work in Superchunk and as co-owner of Merge Records. Started in the early '90s as a lo-fi side project and musical foil to Superchunk, over the years, Portastatic has evolved into a credible artistic entity of its own. A showcase for McCaughan's expansive songwriting skills and interests, the last few Portastatic recordings have included an instrumental film score (Looking For Leonard, 2001), a collection of Brazilian tropicalia covers (De Mel, De Melao, 2000), and a collaboration with two of the Chicago jazz-scene's most respected members, Ken Vandermark and Tim Mulvena (A Perfect Little Door, 2001). How's that for diversity and range?
