[ALT-ROCK SURVIVORS] Coming of age as a band in ’80s Minneapolis must’ve sucked. Not only were you toiling under the shadow of Prince—such a dominating figure his music literally became the “Minneapolis sound”—but you also had to compete with both the most ambitious indie-rock band in America (Hüsker Dü) and the flat-out best band in America (the Replacements). A band like Soul Asylum never stood a chance. Yet here we are, 30-some years later, and Prince is surviving off his back catalog, Hüsker Dü and the Replacements ain’t never getting back together, and Soul Asylum is still putting out new records. Even if those records mostly play like arguments against allowing punk bands to grow old—2012’s Delayed Reaction, while a solid example of veteran tunesmithery, sounds awfully nostalgic—it’s still more than anyone could’ve expected  from the guys who did “Runaway Train.” Heck, they even had Replacements bassist Tommy Stinson in the band for a spell a few years back. That’s got to count as some sort of victory.
