Ye Olde Encyclopedia of Minnesota Heavy Metal Records, tapes, CDs- pre- 1990 AD.

31 May


I consider myself an aficionado on all things Rock and Roll, especially garage, punk, and psych rock, and I love r&b, soul, funk, and disco, especially local stuff. Soul-searching recently, it dawned on me: where did all this fanaticism start? Kiss, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Alice Cooper…
There are TONS of great Heavy Metal bands, old and new, from Minnesota. A google search on “Minnesota Heavy Metal” quickly landed me on a photograph of a cupcake with a french fry wedged in the frosting. Greasy and sticky, but not very thorough or definitive. The evidence of any study on MN HM is quite brief out there in internet-land.
I’m really glad all the ’80s Minnesota New Wave stuff has gotten so much attention lately, and I really love Cyn Collins new book ‘Complicated Fun’. And if y’all are ready to open up a new chapter, we can start the discussion HERE.

This list is UNDER CONSTRUCTION. Anything to add? Contact me.

A tip of the hat to Crow, Lightning, and White Lightning, Minnesota’s proto Metal legends, the grindcore bands like Scaphe, the zillions of bands post-1990…and today.

John Kass– Records I like 1985 – 2019

16 Jan



This list is largely influenced by:

Two music festivals that I’ve attended regularly over that time frame– Heliotrope, an event hosting (nearly all) local experimental/psych/noise/free jazz artists, and The Deep Blues Festival, which conversely hosts almost exclusively out-of-town acts.

RADIO K, Minnesota’s fantastic college radio station from The University of Minnesota. Certainly one of the best reasons to live here.

In 2009, I worked for Acoustic Sounds as a buyer, so I had my nose in record distributor catalogs a lot, hence the robust nature of that year.

Starting out the record store Dead Media has sure rubbed off on my musical tastes, thanx to my partners Joey, Colin, Simon, and Walker.

Oh, yeah, friend’s fave lists too (particularly Connie Voltaire’s & Ed Ackerson‘s best-of lists). Who knows? They both probably read a lot of good magazines & blogs, and I’m glad they do!

Faster and Louder Blog on Blogspot

The list fleshes out greatly in December, when I check out what my peers have picked. I’ve skipped releases that I put out myself on the Prospective, Susstones, and GoJohnnyGo labels, but I might add them in too sometime.
