Holy guacamole, you've gotta see this video (if you're a Twin Cities music history person)

Once upon a time, KSTP ran a craptacular local chat show called "Good Company," hosted by two minty-fresh closet crackheads named Steve and Sharon. Well, back in 1986, some genius (who probably lost his job as a result) decided to have Husker Du on as musical guests. The results, in my opinion, are stunning. The look on the faces of an audience full of middled-aged hausfraus is simply priceless.

P.S. The guy with the handlebar moustache is the only one who isn't gay. Go figure.
P.P.S. I'll betcha a sixer of Grain Belt that they were skagged out of their gourds throughout the interview.
P.P.P.S. Drummer Grant Hart attended South Saint Paul High School with Tim Pawlenty. Again, go figure.
P.P.P.P.S. As long as we're talking Husker Du, check out this video for 'Don't Want to Know If You are Lonely:'

Steve and Sharon know what the people want.

Man, I usd to watch that show with my Mom when I was a kid. I loved that Gary Lumpkin Guy.

Did you know that Steve and Sharon own a cable tv powerhouse:

You probably did!

P.S. Grant Hart has a practice space bymy old band "Vegas Kings" and he used to sit around making plastic model airplanes all the time, and when we asked him about it, he smiled and showed us teeth only a momma could love, and said "It's the glue!" Anyway, Greg Norton is a restauranteur down in Red Wing or something now. I guess a restauranteur is like a provocateur, but it's arestaurant instead of a provocation, or something like that.

P.P.S. I meant to say Grant Hart "had" a practice space by us, because that was back 20 years ago (damn that's along time) back when the Rossmore had Mr. C's Barbeque on the first floor and it hadn't been converted into a bunch of condom-iniums yet. People would leave copies of "Thrasher" in the communal bathroom. It was all very cool and collective until some guys cut a hole through the wall into our practice space and stole everything we had worked our asses off to buy over the course of the previous three years. Gotta hand it to 'em though, never thought of that cutting a hole through the wall approach. We think the dudes from Vermin did it.

Gary Lumpkin is now a realtor. I run into him once in a while.

He may be an entertaining realtor, but not as entertaining as that realtor over at Buycurious, as supported by the Pirate of Selby Avenue. She has a history of selling those (totally amazing) condos at the Rossmor (which has lost it's poverty chic cred but gained in upstanding citizens).

Why is my secret code to type in
Is that like an abbreviated orgasm?
