The band that influenced acts like: Husker Du, Replacements and have to been a big wehicle for the spiring Minneapolis scene to come in the early ’80s. Rumours has it that Chris Osgood(guitar/vocals) was a guitar teacher for Bob Mould. If then thank you Chris since early Husker Du have been one of my favourite early Hardcore bands.
“In 1974 Chris Osgood (the godfather of the Minneapolis music scene), Dave Ahl, and Steve Almaas formed The Suicide Commandos. They released two singles on PS Records (which preceded Twin/Tone Records.) The Commandos were one of the pioneer US bands touring the country, having to book themselves by convincing club owners in every city that their kind of music would draw people.”
The “Make A Record” seemed to float around everywhere as far as I can remember it. It didn’t look good(yeah I used to be a shallow bastard NOW I know it’s what inside that counts. yeah sure!) even though it had many songs so it took a long time before I picked it up. I think it was the TV Eye drummer who turned me on to this masterpiece.
