Although barely considered worth a footnote today (cross-reference under "singleminded" and "energy OD"), the Hypstrz were nevertheless radical in their own special time and place, blasting through '60s garagemania in late-'70s Minneapolis, purposefully stamping their frantic rifferama into countless pubescent brains, personalizing punk in a subversively idiosyncratic (and decidedly song-oriented) manner, thereby paving the way for the Twin City sound of the early '80s.
