The Carpetbaggers


An alternative nation trio from, of most areas, the affluent Minneapolis suburb of Edina, the Carpetbaggers were shaped in 1991 by guitarists Mike Crabtree and John Magnuson, alongside vertical bassist Rich Copley. Two well-received 3rd party label produces, 1992’s Country Mls Aside and 1993’s Nowhere to look But Down, helped gain the Carpetbaggers some high-profile gigs starting for Boy Volt. In 1996, the group released Sin Today…Pray Later.
