Peter Scholtes is on fire, people. He's gunning for Minneapolis oral historian laureate--first his stunning First Avenue oral history (can't wait to see the 1st Ave. documentary on the bonus disc of the forthcoming Purple Rain DVD reissue, btw), then he runs down the early years of Mpls. funk, and with a quick stopover to Jukebox Jury with Low for my paper, he unearths the hidden history of Twin Cities rap. Who's the hardest working male in alt-weeklydom? Besides me and Bonazelli, I mean? This guy, folks. This guy.
