A rare live performance by Minneapolis garage/surf/noise pioneer Michael Yonkers. His early albums achieved cult following status and were re-released by the Sub Pop label in 2011. With modified guitar and homemade effects he creates a wall of distorted sound with ragged beat poetry vocals. Recorded at the Turf Club in St. Paul, Minnesota. Produced and recorded by Tom Garneau.
