F*ck the Police: 3 Minute Hero reunites!
After a seven-year absence, skankin' rockers 3 Minute Hero are reuniting for a couple of shows in Minneapolis this weekend. (Dear readers in St. Peter, MN, can catch a preview tonight at Patrick's on 3rd.) Formed in Fargo in 1995, the eight-piece band was a popular fixture on the Minneapolis scene, releasing three CDs before folding in 2000. 3 Minute Hero's chanteur, the Reverend Colonel J.R. Nelson, tells City Pages all the major players are going be back, including current members of Go Jimmy Go, Rasputina, and the Secondhand Ska Kings. Show highlights will include the opening of a 1997 time capsule, and we can only hope, a rousing rendition of their smash hit "We're So Happy! (We're Going to Pee in Your Pants!)" 3 Minute Hero will be playing Bunkers on Friday, June 8, and the Fine Line Music Café on Saturday, June 9.
