Lifter Puller – Fiesta + Fiascos

“Fiestas + Fiascos”

It’s always tragic and sad when a bands calls it a day after releasing a near-masterpiece.  Lifter Puller went out on top, like no other; building a fan base that would eventually propel Craig and Tad’s “The Hold Steady” fame.  Fiesta + Fiascos is, in my mind, the best Minnesota album of all-time… and I owe my discovery of Craig Finn and Lifter Puller to a free album urging the youth not to smoke (Target Market, anyone?).

Grade: A+

Favorite Track: Touch My Stuff

Second Favorite: The Flex And The Buff Result
