There’s a small but definite difference between a band that is influenced by an era and one that copies it. Over the past year or two, I’ve gone to countless shows in dark and beer-drenched local venues where punk band after punk band try – and fail – to recreate the work of acts like the Replacements, Husker Dü, or Babes in Toyland.

These are songs that thousands of punk bands around the country would kill to be able to write – Mayo and Bighorse managed to do it before they were old enough to legally drink or even attend the shows that
