IS LIFTER PULLER THE BEST PUNK BAND TO COME OUT OF MINNEAPOLIS?
Tough call. Many will argue that the first wave of punk, from The Replacements to Husker Du, were the best bands to come out of Minneapolis. But long after them, Lifter Puller filled a void that combined spoken word, post punk and linear songwriting that put the Twin Cities back on the map, later morphing into The Hold Steady after a move to New York City.
