Soul Asylum (aka Loud Fast Rules) - Times Incinerator '81-'86 w 12 Promo James At 16 (Heavy Medley) 88 w Clam Dip And Other Delights (Rare EURO Version) EP 88 first 7 w KJ104 Emergency Food Shelf Benefit w KFAI 90.3 Acoustic w Various Bonus Live

REPOST Request:  Gosh, I used to see Dave Pirner lead singer back in the early eighties riding his jalopy bike around downtown Minneapolis all the time.  Here is what I wrote before on this post:  These guys used to play around this time of year and I would see them every time, many times at the annual Thanksgiving shows at First Avenue club so I was kind of missing that and so here is a cool post for you.  I was at the canned food drive show while a friend taped it for me on the radio then I also taped the other radio segment with a few CARS songs mixed with a Jane's Addiction song!  They also cover my favorites by the Descendents (Hope), Eddie and the Hot Rods (Do Anything You Want To Do), MC5 (Shakin' Street), Lulu (To Sir With Love) and even Marvin Gaye (Sexual Healing)!!  I was surprised the old Loud Fast Rules early stuff per their first band name link didn't expire after last download with 30 day gap so check that out for the faster stuff.  I had a request for the first 1984 LP "Say What You Will" so I pulled it out and damn those first two songs with Voodoo Doll really took me back to those "Long Day" s in my room growing up listening to that album quite a bit, when Dave had that controlled-to-silent scream--first two songs are killer but Twin Tone re-released all the albums w bonus tunes and will digitize so I won't post those later ones.

Wow! Some Soul Asylum I haven't heard before. Many thanks. Like yourself, I made sure to catch Soul Asylum everytime they managed to swing thru town (London at the time). In the late 80s, Soul Asylum were one of the best live bands on the planet! From small bars to medium sized venues they always delivered. I dragged many friends along to a S.A. gig knowing they'd be a convert before we left the venue.
Unfortunately, post "Runaway Train", it was harder to convince others (and myself) to go and see them, and so I haven't since 1992. But those late 80s gigs still rank right up there as some of the best...
Thanks again for the Soul Asylum

Thanks for Times Incinerator '81-'86. I dig LFR tracks more than SA's. Some day would like to hear albums they put out before major label deal.

Thanks for this.

I'm of the mind that WInona Ryder sapped Dave's mojo.
