Oh the memories

"For my money, one of the most intriguing bands ever. I can just count my blessings I still have all of their albums in pristine condition on vinyl. For convenience this is a nice cd. It contains their big hits but to be honest every song they ever did was a hit. Music For Boys is still anthemic though. As someone else he said, if they were born 10 years later they would have been huge."
The Best of Minneapolis

"The Suburbs are one of the most amusing and fun to listen to bands of all time, possibly because they were also loaded most of the time! They were "the other band from Minneapolis" when Prince and Morris Day were in their early heydays. They never took themselves too serious but, knew how to write and play music that would make Amish people jump up and DANCE! If you followed VH1's "Bands On the Run", they basically are Flickerstick. The Suburbs never became big time famous but, everyone who heard them had a stomping great time. They started in the late 1970s so, you will hear hints of early punk driven mostly by bass that was (and is) pure dippy fun on the club dance floor. This collection spans much of their best of from the Polygram era put onto Twin/Tone Records. The great songs are mostly there including "Love Is the Law", "Music For Boys", "Rattle My Bones", "Cig In Backwards", "Cows", "Drinking With An Angel", "Waiting", and "The Best Is Over".The bottom line: Pick it up ... and play it at parties. The music is still way hip today and you'll want to learn how to play bass if you can't already!"
Big Bad Stomping Band

"I "discovered" these guys while at was at UW Madison and followed them until their demise. A killer live band (when relatively sober) with smart, dark lyrics. If you like driving, funny, well written rock then you should buy this CD....and tape your wife to the ceiling."
