Shoegazer DreamPop from Minneapolis; Colfax Abbey offered up this debut release for The Prospective label. One listen to this quiet yet roaring piece of sonic pleasure and you will understand why they were in the lead. I have heard the word “Droning” many times being used to describe the band’s trademark sound; graciously I agree.
What can you say about David Koresh……..hmmm, I guess you can fill in the blanks. These recordings were found after his death, it looks as though his claim to fame is that Timothy McVeigh & Terry Nichols found inspiration from him while planning the Oklahoma Bombings. Wow what a winner…..Well if like “bizarre” this is it.
Psychedelic Indie Pop from right here in Minneapolis, MN. This is the band’s debut release with the Prospective label, cat# 599, 7″ single.

Indie Pop from Minneapolis, and this being the first release from the band. This band also features John “Landing Gear” Hunt, who has gone on to work with the Sundazed company doing artwork for the label. 500 copies were pressed of this little gem, Cat# 603.
GJG is certainly the best place to buy a ton of records. We have 470,000 of them, and have been selling 'em for 29 years. GJG is also a blog: I like lo-fi analog sound (cassettes and vinyl, please) and lo-rez/highly-pixelated/blurry photographs of (mainly) Minnesota music and its related ephemera.
A word about the audio clips posted on this blog: ABSOLUTELY NO sound editing is used. No level boosting, no de-clicking, no 'cleaning up', no sweetening, no mastering. You can do that yourself if you like- we're trying to give you the actual sound from the item provided- warts and all.
TURN IT UP if you want to!
