The Baby Astronauts 1987- 22 song cassette

30 Oct

The Baby Astronauts had some great songs, and have been called one of the unsung Minnesota bands from the 1980s post-Husker/Mats/whathaveyou.  Their sole LP “All the Pancakes You Can Eat” was reissued as a CD with extra tracks on Chris Johnson’s BIG MONEY label; both the LP & CD are now collector’s items.  I have an earlier cassette called “Strawberry Enema” that drummer Bill Sudz gave to me back in the mid-1980s. This tape follows both of those, and is titled “’87” on the cassette card and label.  Three of the songs are repeated here, so there are 19 different tunes, here is a few for you to hear. Thanks to Rob Weum for allowing me to put these up for you.

    I used to spend summers in Minneapolis in the early 80’s and played with Rob and Eric (the original bass player) of the Baby Astronauts. Sadly we lost contact over the years. I found an old letter from Eric in some stuff and did a search and found this….amazing. Thanks for posting, now to find the boys and get together for a jam! Dave Dudley

    Pleasepleaseplease put the whole tape up! I see lots of songs listed that I’m unfamiliar with, and I’m a diehard Baby Astronauts fan since 1984…those were the days in the twin cities.
