Nice to find this one as I had it back when it came out after hearing the 'slow scream' of the first singer on the MRR classic first compilation.  Sounds better with the equipment I have these days!


SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON:  The demo with some of these songs rules!

DROOGS - kingdom day LP 87 w Stone Cold World LP 88 w WANT SOMETHING LP 90

I commented over at Wildevilman's blog ( ) last week or so when he posted a compilation with this band that I would be posting the albums I have so here they are now. BTW the last song sounds like an outtake off an old favorite: T.S.O.L. - Beneath the Shadows LP which is a good thing as I have adored that album for a long time whereas some didn't back then.

Clay idols - Falling Down Backwards LP 90

Have that Del Amitri kind of sound.

Tane Cain - st LP 82

Are you the 'Hurtin' Kind'?  LOL

Carlene Carter - Two Sides To Every Woman LP 79

Close to country music sounding but not's that?

KAREN YOUNG - Hot Shot LP 78

Some very funky sounds bordering on disco.  She got some pizzazz!


Short female artist theme above.  This one produced by Genya Ravan, on the Golden Ravan Co. label for RCA.

NOVA MOB 7-29-1994 at the 7th Street Entry - Grant Hart Tribute

Want to post a special video highlighting Grant Hart (R.I.P.) and his talented band Nova Mob.  We used to see them quite regularly at their home club First Ave/7th St. in Minneapolis.  It is TV news footage used for a story at the time so keep that in mind as it is not perfect except for sound is great but just too good to stay off the air when they took down my channel.  I give it as a present to the fans as I made the MPG and it was a very popular post before my channel takedown with 3 copyrt strikes.  Sorry posts so late this week but Hurricane Irma made me migrate up North last weekend.
