list of Sixties bands from St Paul as compiled by Zip Caplan of THE LITTER

25 Mar

Zip Caplan, lead guitarist and leader of legendary garage psychedelic monsters The Litter, is an affable guy who shows up at just about every Minnesota Record Show. He grew up in St Paul like me, so I recently posed a question to him that I’ve always wanted answered: there are lots of great sixties bands from Minnesota, but which of them were from St Paul specifically? For the price of a lunchtime hot dog, Zip wrote down a list of bands in pen for me, off the top of his head. Thanx Zip for satisfying my curiosity. (ed. note: One of the guys in The Deacons added Sir Lawrence and The Crescents to the list.)


The Uniques
The Escapades
The Continentals
The Rhythm Kings
Tim & The Galaxies
The Blackhawks
The Deacons
Keith Zeller and The Starliners
