(By Michael Dawson)
Sled was a Twin Cities-based rock band formed in 1994 by Rick Montpetit (bass), Pat Prokosch (drums), and Michael Dawson (guitar/vocals). The band had a good run, writing and recording a handful of full-length demo albums, and playing live shows pretty regularly until calling it quits in 2001. Sled was never exactly a household name. We used to joke, "we’re so far underground we’re on the charts in China." But we were really in it to have fun, be creative, and just do what we love to do. So why the website? Well,for starters, those Chinese fans of ours have been requesting this for years. Also,I’m kind of a history buff. It’s been 10 years since the end of Sled and that seemed like a decent enough reason... oh, and I got really bored one day.
