Bikes, music, computers, comics--what else do you need?

So many Al Jourgensen stories to tell….

NoMeansNo stayed at my house the night they played for Sonic Warp. They went over early as Mark and I had to tear down the sound system. We got home at 3am and went to sleep immediately. We woke up the next morning to a breakfast they made for us AND they had cleaned up the house (Filth/MDC had stayed there the night before and had trashed the house). I love those men.

More Chicago awesomeness. Steve Albini played bass on this EP. Pegboy was formed by ex-Naked Raygun members, Joe and John Haggerty.

I am still working on my Naked Raygun booking story. Stay tuned.

More Minneapolis greatness from the late ’80s. The Bastards may have been the angriest band in the history of music.

Misery has broken up after an almost 30 year run as crust punk legends. They played one of their first shows in my basement at the 26th and Pillsbury house. 300 people, 10+ kegs (liquor store stayed open after hours so we could keep buying kegs) what’s not to love?

Mpls crust punk legends. Members formed Profane Existence and one became a professional road bike racer.

The Minneapolis anti-racist Code 13 not the FL bonehead version.

Who doesn’t love an all bass band?

I love Minneapolis/St Paul bike culture. It is about way more than bikes. Music provided by the Eclectic Ensemble.

Things I see/hear on a bike ride on the Greenway. This is a solar powered band called the Eclectic Ensemble.

Just thought you might want to meet the other woman in my life. Don’t worry, Stephiehell is aware and approves of this relationship.
