    Anybody know anything about a band called The Criminals from Minnesota. I got a bass that has their sticker on the case. They played at the Stroh's Winter Carnival in St. Paul in 1988. Here is a pic that shows the band's sticker and a sticker from the Winter Carnival (I also found a bill that show the band played at this festival):

    Ha small world! I ended up talking to Mike Ryan, the guitarist/singer of the band. So your dad is Brian Primus? That's cool. The bass player was Tom Newhouse; I ended up chatting with him also. Are you a bass player?
