John, Erik, Erik, & Scott. AAAND Slug on “Pea King”, at least a full year before the first Atmosphere full-length dropped. My favorite local Jazz release ever, hands down.
I was tempted to put this entire tape up, but it was released on a CD, and it isn’t too hard to find. You should track one down: try Cheapo or Amazon. “Quadelody” is almost 13 minutes, so I’m keeping this posting to two tracks. “Q” has an almost Hawkwind-like middle part(!), I’m sure Mr. Fratzke had something to do with that.
I’ve already put up some Casino Royale with Phull Surkle here.
Thanks again to John Keston for granting me permission to put this up. Hat’s off to ya, John, I love your music! Here’s John’s world nowadays: Audio Cookbook.
The flyer above is for the follow-up show, which I’ll post later. Mastered from a series of cassettes. Thanks to THE LIZARD for granting me permission to post this. Vince, if you find this, please contact me.
This is early Dwindle. Two of the four songs were re-recorded in Olympia by Tim Green & that tape (Inki Red) was issued by Guilt Ridden Pop Records as the Present General Conditions CD EP in 1996. The tape included here pre-dates those recordings. Dwindle were awesome! Thanks to Keith Moran fr giving me the OK to post these here.
An all-star lineup of East Side rockers, you can hear the Destroy All Monsters and Radio Birdman influence in these songs. Electra Glide went on to release a CD too. Guitarist Roger DeBace is an astoundingly great guitarist, and by this point he knew his way around a recording studio since he had quite a few recordings behind him (Willful Neglect, Mother Frank & Cherry, etc). The sound and arrangements here are top notch. Dan Miggler on vocals! Hertz on bass! Thanks to Dan for giving me the permission to post these here.
This is the second Sedgwicks cassette that I’ve posted, the other was one that guitarist David Beckey had found. Of course, I found one a couple of weeks later. Great guitar pop songs that fit the time perfectly and sound great today. Thanks to Jay & David for allowing me to present this great old tuneage.

Dragnet ruled. A good hint to that is their choice of covers on this tape: The Suicide Commandos and The Who. Produced by the estimable Terry Katzman. None of the five original songs here made it onto their two 7″ singles or their Life in General LP. Thanks to Greg Schaefer for turning on the green light to post these tracks for you, and to John at City of Dust for pointing me to this tape.
GJG is certainly the best place to buy a ton of records. We have 470,000 of them, and have been selling 'em for 29 years. GJG is also a blog: I like lo-fi analog sound (cassettes and vinyl, please) and lo-rez/highly-pixelated/blurry photographs of (mainly) Minnesota music and its related ephemera.
A word about the audio clips posted on this blog: ABSOLUTELY NO sound editing is used. No level boosting, no de-clicking, no 'cleaning up', no sweetening, no mastering. You can do that yourself if you like- we're trying to give you the actual sound from the item provided- warts and all.
TURN IT UP if you want to!
I ask that you please make comments if you have info to add here- this is a resource for all of us. THANK YOU
