I've been doing some research on bands from the Twin Cities in the 80s because I bought a bass that was owned by the bassist for a band called The Criminals that played at various venues in the Twin Cities in the mid to late 80s. So if anyone knows about them, please post! In the meantime, I have learned about some interesting bands like Lamont Cranston, the Flamin' Oh's, Obsession (from CT but played alot in TC), Slave Raider, etc. Some of the venues I have found that had interesting bands are Cabooze, Ryan's, Brady's, and the Winter Carnival in St. Pauls. Anybody here familiar with this scene?
