PODCAST: EP. 32 – Soul Asylum, Gear Daddies, Husker Du, and the Minnesota Sound (part 3)

Bar band swagger. Like many Minneapolis artists we have been talking about, there were a number of rock and roll bands that paid lots of night-after-night dues in rock clubs and van tours. They too recorded critically-acclaimed, small-label indie albums before eventually landing a big deal. Or not.

Artists – Just like Prince did – heard themselves on top 40 radio stations alongside other cuts from bands playing something different than their core sound, and artists took part of those sounds as their own. Styles weaving into each. Grabbing something from another band and slipping that sound into their own.
