Craig Finn Talks About Lifter Puller

Lifter Puller

The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn sat down with Vulture in advance of both his former band, Lifter Puller’s reissued albums and the publication of a photo-anthology/oral-history Lifter Puller Vs. the End Of, to discuss the stories behind some of LP’s more well-known tunes. 

If you’re a fan of either band (and you should be?), Finn’s lyrical stories of druggy teenagers and wayward youth are more than half the draw, which makes the inspiration behind those songs so enthralling.
