WHO IS THIS MINNESOTA BAND?- ASI Studios’ Mystery Group #1

8 Jun

il_570xN.800354971_kd64

I’m guessing this is from 1976-1978. Unlabeled demo tape found in the stash of ASI Studio reels. Two tracks you can check out (with cut-off endings).

Come On Come On

track two was CONFIRMED by Gregg Inhofer: PEPPER FOG Please let the Sunshine

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.

Diggin’ thru the 78s

20 Apr

forty years of diggin’… I’ve probably looked at 100,000 78s in my day (so far!)

Here’s what I’ve found that would be considered bona-fide American BLUES 78s

John Henry …  Memphis Jug Band …  Blind Boy Fuller …  Big Bill Broozny

sealed 7-inch EP in a poly bag. Never seen one of these before. Rack-jobber, most likely? Anybody know more?
