From bobEE Sweet:

St. Louis based reissue label Rerun Records put out several gems: BOB, herky jerky art punk, and The Shivvers, some of the best power pop you'll ever hear. Shopping continued to carry post-punk into the 21C.  Sadly the trio's first scheduled appearance in St. Louis, with Middle Class Fashion, was cancelled this year.  Wolf Roxon, formerly of St. Louis with The Moldy Dogs, put out another great collection of songs. X's Alphabetland ranks with their records from the 80s. Sparks with 25 studio albums in their 50 year career continue to deliver. St. Louis' CaveofswordS third album is a sonic soundtrack for 2020.
