Germaine Gemberling Live at Lee’s

Germaine Gemberling is a singer-songwriter born and raised in St. Paul. She began studying music a child, and grew up on in the midst of the indie-rock explosion that brought us the Replacements, Husker Du, Jayhawks and Soul Asylum. She fronted her first band at 17—the all-girl punk band SMUT—who signed to Spanish Fly/Twin-Tone Records in 1992. A few years later Germaine left the Twin Cities for the beauty and solitude of northern Minnesota. She performs with her folk-rock band, Junkboat, as well as acoustically and with Rich Mattson and Ol’ Yeller. Her most recent release, Generator, was recorded at Sparta Sound in 2013.

She performed recently at Lee’s Liquor Lounge in Minneapolis. This program was recorded and edited for MinneCulture by Tom Garneau. It airs Wed, Nov 6 from 7:30-8pm. MinneCulture is made possible by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

  1. Spice Boys – Glade (PNKSLM, Rock)

Spice Boys are the Swedish response to America's psych-punk boom of the last decade. Sure there are plenty of punk songs about not being social, but "I Don't Get Around" actually revels in it. After all, there doesn't seem to be much use in going out when you're a competent enough punk group to stick to the tried and true 2-minute-song formula on "Fuk Lov."
