Book Mpls punk godfathers Suicide Commandos

Still amazingly vital live, the mid-70's Minneapolis punk trio the Suicide Commandos lit the fuse from whence The Replacements, Husker Du, COWS, Dillinger Four etc all came. Fun fact: Singer/guitarist Chris Osgood gave guitar lessons to Bob Mould and Dave Pirner. Bonus fact: all three of these cats sing and our still great pals. Their 1978 release "Make A Record" is a seminal slab of American punk rock. Contemporaries of the Ramones (whom they played with along with Iggy). Still just as potent. Please seek out this, uh, CD and consider an invite please. Utter giants and total innovators; they came upon their sound before hearing the Ramones' first LP. So ahead of their time, they were referred to as "from New York" (though they were not) because the "punk" label hadn't been thunk up an stuck yet. Honest: an all killer classic slab of American punk rawk which hasn't aged one day.
