Due to the obscurity factor concerning basement party bands and bands that played at "The Upper Deck" or "The Whole" you can add.....


The Thalidomide Kids
Fucking Frogi's Army (FFA)----

The reason for most of those "bands" being obscure is simple; no one cares. I say don't mention them. I think you need to play out at least half a dozen times to be considered a band.

Concerning obscure bands….most of them are or should have been if we had any standards. How fast would a show clear out when Ground Zero played the Upper Deck? If you’re going for some criteria why not pick bands that have released something in quantities greater than 5000 copies (tapes, 45s, records, CDs). At that cutoff there could once again be a cutoff concerning bands that have music that could be acquired today. (Help me out if you can, but I lost my Red Meat demo tape ~15 years ago)
In that sense there is some recognition by sales rather than ~6 shows that ~50 friends show up for each time they play. I’d estimate that roughly 25% of your list distributed tunes in significant quantities to be noticed and the likelihood that a band could stay together long enough to get money for a half-ass recording was pretty slim. Split the list to include some sort of criteria if you want to toss out the obscure or keep them all.

I like what I'm hearing,this whole numbers crunching thing is right on if you wanna look at things that way,but non to many acts in those days had access to tecnology like now.So it was more costly and difficult to put stuff out,you could do it but you had be able to be something more than some punk on the street.Red Meat for example was nothing more than that.We did record but we thought we sucked so much and were one of the few Hardcore type bands in town that we did'nt do it.Look for a mp3.com website featuring some demos.Ar'nt you excited?

as accurately as I can remember
there were a lot of people in crumby bands,
most of which played a few shows and broke up and maybe they only hold nostalgia for a few people, I think they should all be listed
because who is going to say "you cant play,
you never put out a record and you only have fifty freinds" thats not punk rock.

Steve Brantseg, CJ, Monty, Brian Paulson,I don't remember who else. Spyder Bite. Bil Sullivan, Jim Boquist, Tommy Stinson, Caleb, Chris Mars, Me,(this is not the fake one that played this past halloween). Big Hair, Brian Paulson and me. I could go on and on.

Dear Marcodane.
No I'm not your enemy and I hope you continue to post. I simply call it as I see it. Judgement of Paris "Signal" 9 Track CD only distributed by TCI on Audiocon Release AR1003 1993 and they Formed as a band 6 months after the Korg M1 was released. Not in the 80's

Herion does keep your thin skin young tho.

A brief history of S. Pike's first few bands and me:

Shawn's first band was actually "The Burkes." Of course, we never played anywhere, since the band consisted of me and Shawn and our imaginations.

This was after he met me in the hall at Free School, and told me I "looked like a bass player." I promptly bought a bass.

Eventually, we added Jeff Stichowskie, Ginger Kaufman, and Zell, and became "Four Out of Five Doctors," later "The Sacred Version" after a REAL band took the first name.

When that band broke up, we started "Bwana Devil," (there was a latter-day band named that, too,) with Mark McGirl and Pogo. (Paul Lucas.)

When that band broke up, Buck approached me about playing together. The original idea was Buck on drums, me on bass and vocals, and no one else. (Tim, Buck, two -- get it?) It (specifically I,) sucked, and so Shawn, Sari and Ivan were added. They promptly threw me out of the band. Heh.

Luckily, we all drank a lot back then, so I was placed back in the lineup for the aforementioned Uptown Theater gig that cemented the lineup and involved enormous falling drag-queens.

One cool thing: The Sacred Version was the first band ever to play the 7th Street Entry, opening for Curtiss A.

Hey was in a band with Zell(was he a weird dude or what)and that crazy Ginger,she was also a female boxer.It was the band after this Sacred Version,of which I've never heard of.I do remember a band I saw at The Longhorn by the name of "600",maybe you weren't in that band.They had some song called "Sciccors"and the only lyrics were Sciccors,scissors..... song by that crazy guy Luke,I think he had a big swastika on his shirt.

Zell also worked with Mudpie guy Verne. They had some strong success as "NO SOCIAL SKILS" a fabulous project in which I'M certain the plan was to fry the keg at the party. I'm not sure if it was the beer or the band that made me sick.

Slime Clowns were really good. One of them was a guy named Tim Miske, who has changed his name since then. He also was in New Egypt. They once went to the renaissance festival on wheelchairs, giving out deformed candy canes to the kiddies.

Ed Gein Fan Club

played one party in 1985, played an Entry gig in 91 opening for the Fixtures, played a party in 97.

Wilma and the Wilburs I don't think made it into the 80's.

The Vista Cruisers were a short lived band headed by Kevin Bowe's younger brother John, whom I think would have prefered that they be forgotten.

Also I am not sure this counts but the Suburbs performed in various formations as the Jumbo Shrimp and the Porch Monkeys.

>>Swill Mongrel.

Yes, Swillmongrel. Together for almost a decade yet public appearances were rare, limited to one 20 minute Entry performance third on the bill to Bad Trip, one high school gig in Minnetonka in which the power is cut mid-set and a handful of basement parties. Recorded output is equally sketchy, official releases limited to the flip side of the Bad Trip demo tape.
