Punk, pop and roots rock meet in the too-hip-for-the-garage tunes of Minneapolis-based Magnatone. Released a split-single with Boston band The Cretins on New York label Melted Records in '96. Front guy Tom Rosenthal's previous project Speedway had a 10" 8-song EP on Dionysus Records in '95. This is a hard touring band (particularly throughout the Midwest and East), with a kickin' live show.

Produced by Hans Buff (Son Volt, Live, the Beatifics).
