2014 has been one hell of a year for Minnesota Punk. Extreme Noise turned 20, Amphetamine Reptile got the documentary treatment, Adam Degross put together a whole exhibit of scene photography and won the City Pages photographer poll, somebody finally bought the Medusa and, as always, about eight billion bands formed, broke up, reunited, and then broke up again. Oh, and some really cool groups made some really cool records, and it's time to celebrate that.
So whether you're a hardened DIY venue rat or just a "fraudulent piece of shit in neon green pants using artistic culture as an accessory," this list is for you. It's a list of records you really ought to buy. It's an article about punk. Let's try not take it too seriously, shall we?
Like last year's list, the 2014 edition is in alphabetical; not ranked, order. In order to qualify as an "album," the recording had to have at least 5 songs. Check out the end for a listing of some great EPs, singles, and demos as well.
