JunkboatMembers of the rock band Junkboat paid their dues in the late 1980s and early ’90s during the height of Minneapolis’ burgeoning music scene with iconic groups like the Glenrustles, Smut and Urban Guerillas. Now older and more mature, they’ve traded in faux-ripped jeans and faded T-shirts for real-life Iron Range Carhartts and flannels. Their dedication to quality songwriting has also matured. Germaine Gemberling’s country-fried vocals/lyrics lead the way for Rich Mattson, David Loy and Al Schroeter to hammer in a sundry of musical nails. They released a self-titled album in 2011 and have been featured on WDSE-TV’s The Playlist and KUMD.
