Tonight on MinneCulture, an encore presentation of the The Minneapolis Music Scene 1975-1980 Part I, produced by Cyn Collins. The Twin Cities has had a vibrant music scene for decades, but in the early to mid-1970s there was almost no original music being performed. Only a few bands dared to be different, and thanks to their creative diligence, the Minneapolis punk/rock scene was born. This two-part documentary describes the Minneapolis music scene between 1975 – 1980, and features interviews and music by Curtiss A (Thumbs Up/the Spooks), Chris Osgood (the Suicide Commandos), Robert Wilkinson (the Flamin’ Oh), Chan Poling (the Suburbs), Kevin Cole (Rev 105), Peter Jesperson (Twin Tone/New West Records) and many more.
