Paradox ‘KQRS 92.5 FM interview 11-16-1986’from cassette tape

The sound quality of the songs on the cassette isn’t as good as the CD or vinyl; hopefully this will inspire you to BUY THE CD so you can hear the songs better.

I’ve provided what radio insiders call a “scope” of the broadcast- the talking is presented with beginnings & ends of the songs only.

Thanks to John Eller for approving this. Photos by Patty DuBois.

Disturbed were a metal band from Minnesota during the 1980s. We came across this six song demo and really wanted to share this with you! The band consisted of:

Earl Root: All Guitars & b/u vox hellnoize & screams

James Odegard: Vocals & hellnoize

Mike Nelson: Drums & Thunder

Gregg Bleaker: Bass & Rumble

This recording was made on June 15th, 1987 and had been together about month at the time of recording. There are six songs total on the demo ready to thump your ears and wake them up!











1. Kill ‘Em (Before they X)

2. Tear it Apart

3. I Don’t Kare

4. What the Fuck!?!

5. Comatose

6. Bought & Sold

We would like to thank Nancy Root for allowing us to share this with you.

awesome ‘HYPNOTIC TORNADO’ compilation cassette from 1985

30 Mar

Everyone knows about most of the great Minnesota compilation records. There’s ‘Big Hits of Mid-America Vol. I-IV’, ‘Barefoot & Pregnant’, ‘Kitten’, ‘No Slow All Go’. Some of you may have even heard of ‘Burger Corpse’ or ‘Lung Cookies’. ‘Hypnotic Tornado’ is thee best Minnesota compilation you’ve never heard of. It is St Paul-centric, which means a lot to us at GJG.

Thanks to Paul Dickinson for releasing this great cassette. Paul was in Manifest Destiny, Pax Americana, Poetry Grenade, and you can still see him perform with FRANCES GUMM. Paul wrote one of Minnesota’s greatest anthems “I Will Not be Destroyed”. Sonic Boom Records would go onto release the first Tiltawhirl 7″ single “Pint of Blood” b/w “Define My Life” a couple years later. Tiltawhirl then became Arcwelder.
