#6 Free Truman

This episode is no longer available.

Due to allegations of sexual assault made against former Free Truman bassist Scott Heidinger (also of Fargo band Crab Legs), this episode of Prairie Goth is no longer available.

From Free Truman’s August 9th, 2018 Facebook post:

Scott Heidinger played bass in Free Truman from fall 2015 to July 2017 when we made the decision to part ways with him. Due to recent allegations against our ex-bandmate we have decided to remove all of our music from band-camp. We also will no longer be selling physical copies. Scott recorded our 1st demo and played bass on our 1st and 2nd EPs. We are very upset, disgusted, and disappointed by his actions. We have cut all ties with Scott Heidinger.

To his victim(s?) We are so sorry this happened to you. We are proud of you for coming forward and sharing your story. We wish you comfort and healing going forward. Thanks for reading. Have a great day.


From the Original Blog Post

Today's interview is with Tayler, Tia and Scott of Free Truman, a surf punk band from Fargo/Moorhead. Our conversation revolves around topics like Tia's fear of belly buttons, Scott's love of sinners and the joys & hardships of tour life, including Tayler getting accosted by some huge jerk loser in Kansas City ... and then also in Minneapolis by the King of Mansplaining. Post-interview BONUS CONTENT: I ramble about junk for like a half hour.

You can hear Free Truman's demo from 2015 at freetruman.bandcamp.com.

Thanks to Rod Hadland for letting me goth up the sick photo of Free Truman that he shot at a show at the Hawk's Nest in Fargo! My band Vanity Plate is playing a show there with Free Truman & a bunch uh others on March 31st. See y'all there!!
