St. Paul Bike Blog

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

This was a great show circa 1989. Shotgun Rationale was  one of Bob Stinson's (Replacements) last bands before his death. It Included Sonny Vincent (the Testors) and Cheetah Chrome (The Dead Boys) as members. So strange that these legends OPENED for the Bastards and Alice Donut, who were both phenomenal that night BTW. This is the night that Anthony of the Bastards (very mature subject matter) was flummoxed by a 12 and 13 year old (w/ mom) that wanted their Monticello albums signed by him after destroying his bass on stage in anger. When finding out their age he said in a very sweet voice, “Your parents will pay for the way they raised you.” Sad I have to resort to using cropped photos of fliers of my shows in the background of pictures rather than having archived them myself.
