    I saw Tapes n' Tapes open for a band called "The Slats" back in Minneapolis last January. They sure have come a long way. I did find this stuff below on "The Slats" MySpace....

    Perfect Porridge said, "With tracks ranging from Beastie shout outs ("Boom Patrol") Malkmus indie guitar nods ("I Wrote the Code") and shout along anthems ("I Will Erase You"), Boom Patrol might just be the next big thing to come from the Twin Cities. And that would totally redefine what people think of Minnesota nice."

    Left of the Dial Magazine said, "You almost have to love any band that names their van “Robocop Killer” and hails from Minneapolis [...] with plenty of nods to The Cars, Spoon, Polvo, and Brainiac/Enon. “Ironman” does a fine job laying down the quirky and clanky, art-house aficionado, post-consumer culture hootenanny, all mishap metal, as if C3PO was trying to play CBGBs."
