The Romulans April 1991 six-song cassette

23 Aug

Gawd, I loved The Romulans. They embodied all that was great about Upper Midwest Psych, and their three 7″ singles & “Flight of The Romulans” CD prove it. Lots of Radio K airplay & gigs around the midwest all followed this, their first cassette. A band with a (Madison) Wisconsin pedigree, it follows logically that this band could hold their liquor better than any I’ve ever seen before or afterward. The first and third  tracks were not used on any of their official releases, the second was re-recorded & used as their debut 7″ single. Thanks to Dave Junker for granting permission to post a few tracks from their first demo.

UPDATE OCTOBER 2010: just found ANOTHER cassette with an outtake from The Romulans’ third 7″ single- DIG THE FUZZ, it is called “Sugar & Spice”

    Nice one, John! Do you know I haven’t heard this since about the date on the tape? Glad you held on to stuff like this.

      Hi Bob! I plan on putting up all three of The Romulans singles, along with ALL the Prospective & some of the Susstones Records 45s, as soon as I finish going through my cassette collection, which will be sometime this summer, I’m guessing.
