The Partially Examined Life Philosophy Podcast

Monday, 10 May

Steve was in one of Minneapolis' first big punk bands, The Suicide Commandos, but after one album in 1977, he soon left for New York City and eventually hit it relatively big with two records on IRS as Beat Rodeo, with a solo career continuing the country-rock style beginning in 1992 through nine albums.

We discuss "The Way I Treated You" (and listen to "Goodbye Nicolina," featuring The Jayhawks' Gary Louris) from Everywhere You've Been (2021), "Try Again" by The Suicide Commandos from their reunion album Time Bomb (2017), and the title track from Steve's first solo record East River Blues (1992). Intro: "Just Friends" from Staying Out Late w/ the Beat Rodeo (1984).
