Fivetools.com is the online home of me, Peter Hughes. Here you will find music I’ve written and recorded (solo work as Peter Peter Hughes as well as stuff by my old band, DiskothiQ); a ton of photos taken over the years while touring and recording with The Mountain Goats; a link to a livejournal where I’ve been writing about Mountain Goats–related activity since 2003 (it’s friends-only because I have a zero-tolerance trolling policy, but all you have to do to be friended is ask and all non-trolls are welcome); some stuff I wrote about going to a million baseball games a really long time ago when that was something I used to do and which has absolutely no relevance to my life today, but I figure it’s been up for X years, what’s the point of taking it down now; links to an automobilia blog I occasionally update called Firebird Man and to my tumblr feed, Superdiscochino (you have to go back to the very first entry for an explanation of the name); and, uh, who knows what else. Thanks for visiting.


Mr. Hughes, this is a fantastic website. Ashamedly, though, I must admit I was completely unaware of its existence until just recently. These photo diaries are awesome to browse through, even if it feels a little voyeuristic at times. I’m a fan of your music – both solo and with other groups – as well.

Thank you!
