This week's show features all underground bands from the US with an unintended emphasis on Minneapolis. The first 1/2 hour leans towards postpunk and new wave. The second 1/2 hour focuses on what was a significant western/cowpunk/rockabilly sound in the mid-80s. The second hour has experimental/jazz/avantgarde meets punk then female fronted new wave then male fronted punk and debut releases by proto-grunge(ish) acts Screaming Trees (RIP Mark Langean) and The Fluid.

This show also marks the 7 year anniversary of Pulsebeat. As the show description confesses we spin all underground genres from the late 70s to 1989. Since the first show, we have NOT repeated any artists. Tonight's show brings us up to 9,586 unique artists. Pulsebeat will go off the air when we hit 10,000, in approximately 9 weeks ( May 1st, 2022).
