The Pedaljets originated in Lawrence, Kansas in 1984 and were one of the “almost famous” alternative acts of the 1980s – a missing link between The Replacements and Nirvana. From their beginning, the Pedaljets toured the country nonstop, often opening for the likes of Hüsker Dü, The Flaming Lips, The Replacements, Meat Puppets, and other usual suspects of 1980s alternative/punk America. They released two full lengths – the first, Today Today, on Twilight Records in 1988 to great accolades and the second LP, Pedaljets, was released on Communion in 1989 but was rushed out as an unfinished, poorly realized “what might have been” of an LP. The Pedaljets LP garnered solid national attention and good reviews, despite its flaws. After six years of almost nonstop touring and born upon a deep disappointment with this second LP, the Pedaljets quietly disbanded in July 1990. Ironically, at the time they broke up, the Pedaljets’ flag was flying higher than ever. They were on MTV and packing clubs around the country; even the opening montage of credits on Saturday Night Live featured a quick shot of a Pedaljets poster.
