Loose Rails: You Got Mine b/w Teenage Kicks 7″ single, 1993

29 May


11442Power-pop-punk from Minneapolis (cat# PS592), this is the band’s third release on the Prospective label.

The Loose Rails formed in the waning days of the Big 80s by native Minneapolitan Jeff Kase and Iowa transplant Matt Potts. The pair was soon joined by Hollywood, California exile Johnny Hodges and Adam Fesenmaier, a fellow Minneapolis native and grammar-school playground buddy of Kase. The meteoric early success of live shows led to the new term “Spasm Rock” and piqued the interest of John Kass’s Prospective Records—peddlers of power-pop and punk platters. The union of band and label soon produced 2 singles and one EP.

Photos: Deniz Tek crash lands in Minneapolis, 1993

25 Sep

First of all a disclaimer: Deniz Tek is my all-time Rock n Roll Hero. No shit: fighter pilot, surgeon, Rock n Roll Star. Here is video of him performing with local legends The Spectors- I was the camera man.

Deniz came to town to deal with some personal matters & decided to stop by legendary record store Oar Folkjokeopus. The kind staff there inform him of a band with a sympathetic ear for Deniz’ legacy, so he decides to do a song with The Spectors at The Uptown Bar. I was on a job working construction when I got a beep on my beeper (remember those?) abut the upcoming evening’s performance. Luckily, right before The Spectors hit the stage, guitarist Dan Boardman handed me his video camera, so I got to do the filming on the YouTube clip.  The live photos were taken by Dan Miggler.  Here’s Deniz onstage & posing with some of my buddies afterward. Thanks to Dan for allowing me to put these up.

The Deniz Tek Group played The 400 Bar a couple years later, and Deniz Took me to Flying Cloud Airport to see one of the planes he was flying around. I took the plane photo.
