6/20/06: Salt Lake's Punk Scene

If you were into obscure, but raw music, there was one brief moment in the early 90s when Utah's underground music scene really lived up to its name. They called it punk, but that wasn't the best way of defining the sound. Some of these musicians came out of hardcore straight edge bands. They fused coarse riffs with atonal jazz and hard rock. In the process, they also developed a tight community infused with a remarkable energy. Doug talks with veterans of Salt Lake's punk scene Tuesday on RadioWest.
