2 Oct

Every once in awhile, I’ll run into someone who tells me about one of these. Great stuff. Thanx to FaceBook’s ‘Twin Cities Music Scene ’70s – ’80s’page.

The Romulans: Billy the Monster b/w Black and White Days 7″ single, 1993

28 Jun

billymonster  Psychedelic garage-rock from Madison-via-Minneapolis. This is the 4th release from the band in which 700 copies were pressed for the Prospective label; cat# 593 at GoJohnnyGo. In case you were wondering, the cover art is a tribute to The Deviants’ third self-titled album. http://gojohnnygo.com/as_for-sale&product_category=447&productID=121722

If you already own a copy, you are one of the beautiful people.

The Romulans April 1991 six-song cassette

23 Aug

Gawd, I loved The Romulans. They embodied all that was great about Upper Midwest Psych, and their three 7″ singles & “Flight of The Romulans” CD prove it. Lots of Radio K airplay & gigs around the midwest all followed this, their first cassette. A band with a (Madison) Wisconsin pedigree, it follows logically that this band could hold their liquor better than any I’ve ever seen before or afterward. The first and third  tracks were not used on any of their official releases, the second was re-recorded & used as their debut 7″ single. Thanks to Dave Junker for granting permission to post a few tracks from their first demo.

UPDATE OCTOBER 2010: just found ANOTHER cassette with an outtake from The Romulans’ third 7″ single- DIG THE FUZZ, it is called “Sugar & Spice”
