Werewolves - st LP 78 w Ship Of Fools (summer weekends and no more blues) LP 78

REPOST Request:  I was going to repost this for Halloween but newer stuff took priority.  This rip is from the early days and luckily sounds good...damn!  I wish I would have kept these vinyl.

EXIL - Das Wort Muss Würgen EP 96 w Onkel Feinkost's Super 8 Memories LP 97

REPOST Request:  Thanks to Mark Underground for originally posting this band who he says contains former members of TURBOSTAAT.  I enjoyed it.

HELICOPTER - insect perfect LP 81

REPOST Request:  Cool band!

Residue Of The RESIDENTS LP Ralph Records 83

A San Francisco Institution by the sheer number of records this band has made over the years.

The Eclectics - Idle Worship LP 97

REPOST Request:  Where to begin with third wave ska bands?  How about with one produced by Steve Albini, with a Gorilla Biscuits cover and a Wesley Willis personal endorsement at the end.

The Headboys - st LP 79

Sorry there tiny anonymous kiddo, I didn't notice any 'ripping errors' on my last post of this....perhaps an earlier rip?  In fact it's a pretty dang good rip if I do say so myself....have another try at it...btw this band gets better and better with each listen as the little additions on guitar stand out, etc.

AZYMUTH - Cascades LP 82 w Telecommunication LP 82

Brazilian jazz funk group with many releases.  These two 1982 albums are terrific.

CHRIS DE BURGH - The Getaway LP 82 w Man On The Line LP 84

Had to hear a couple of these old tunes of my youth like 'Don't Pay The Ferryman" and more here.

BETTiE serveert - Dust Bunnies CD 97

O.K. I know this is a Radio K winning as my old phone number is written on it by the station.  Also an old favorite disk for a while.  And here begins a mini theme of female fronted bands.

Endless Blue - st CD 04

Yep, just when other Mpls. slocore (Low, etc) were becoming a thought in the back of the mind, there were these type bands with female lead

Esthero - Breath From Another CD 98

Another female fronted band to match the mini-theme this week.  More on the trip hop edge.  Actually a ground-breaking album as one of the first of this hip hop instrumentation with female vocals and about every song is a hit!

FOG - Check Fraud EP 02 w Ether Teeth 2LP 03

This band features the very talented Andrew Broder.  Check Fraud song was a hit on my old youtube.


SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON:  Must have missed this one last post of her solo stuff.

Julee Cruise - Floating Into The Night CD w The Voice Of Love CD 90

Another Minneapolis native and from the old Twin Peaks TV series you will recognize her music.  I have a tape/CD copy of the first album and this is why I am missing the song 'The Swan' which is short but could not fit on the tape at the time.

Keith Carradine - I'm Easy LP 76 w Lost And Found LP 78

Originally got the first one as I was making my mom a mix since "I'm Easy' is her favorite song.  Hey, if it's too mellow for Mark Underground he can always just take down the link or make a complaint with blogger to have them take it down.  The rest of the songs are actually pretty good.

Another cool band for perusal.  Let us know what you think.

sukpatch - Haulin' Grass And Smokin' Ass CD 96 w Honky-Tonk Operation CD w Twenty-Three CD 06

This Radio K 'hit band' were transplants to our Mpls. scene from Denver.  This loose beat box kind of band has a keen ear for dance hits.

The Dollyrots - Eat My Heart Out CD 04

Another female punk band from not that long ago.
