Bring on the bedspins, bring on the mini-thins -- let's get incredibly immersed in the tale of Lifter Puller, as told by Steve Barone.

Between the band's Red Rox and Brooklyn Bowl reunion sets at the close of 2016, to the soundtrack of a series of their classic songs, Steve reflects on the increasing frequency of Lifter Puller reunions and on the genesis of everything from his synth hook for "Space Humpin' $19.99" to Craig Finn's Muddy Waters-facilitated friendship with Slug from Atmosphere. And that's just the first five minutes. Crank up your amps, man -- this is still a party.
