2 more bands I didn't see listed:

Mass Corruption (before the Nazi influence took over)

The Answers (Suburbs-ish new wave)

I know one of Nik's first bands was called Johnny Bondage and the Hostages (OK, so I ripped off the name from him, big deal, he lives in Gathersberg MD and told me to use the name all I wanted, so THERE!). He said that they played like 3 parties and did all Clash and DOA covers.

Fine Art (1977 - 1984)

Grey Area (1989 - 1991)

Fine Art had 2 records out and several past/future members of TC bands were members. We toured a bit (mostly west and south) but played most of the local rooms. We also recorded enough material for an album with Paul Stark (Twin Tone), but the masters were reportedly thrown into the river by the Replacements, along with a bunch of other stuff)

Our first album came out in '78, and "Scan" came out in '81.

Grey Area recorded two sets of demos, but we never released anything -- it was just too expensive that week. We did tour a lot, though. Grey Area was me (Colin) on guitar and tapes, Greg Norton (Husker Du's "the one with the moustache") on bass, Jo Jones (Loyal Subjects, Language Club), drums.

Corrected Ready Made became CRM. In the list they are called "Correct Ready Made." I recorded them , Loyal Subjects and John Music for a compilation project.

Loyal Subjects released a full-length cassette that I produced, "Subjectivity."

Language Club released an album "Babel," which I produced and K from Fine Art did the cover. The City Pages review compared Micky's singing to that of a pro wrestler, which would probably be an advantage these days, but was not, back then. (Ironically, Mickey *was* a wrestler in high school...)

I also worked on a full-length tape for Borrowed Time.

During the Fine Art time, I recorded demos for Husker Du (in the basement of Northern Lights!) (the master tapes were stolen from Grant's van and have shown up on quite a few bootlegs over the years) and produced "Statues" for them at Blackberry.

I could probably run downstairs and pull out all the local stuff I have (and have produced or recorded for people), but I think this is enough for now.

Fun trip...

If I remember correctly, wasn't there a fleeting band called "Froggie's Army?"

I believe that there was also a predecessor to "Dark Carnival" by the name of "Knob Carnival."

Don't forget that the great contribution in the way of New Wave - Information Society - or InSoc was also a Mpls group.

Who could ever for get the "Flamin' Oh's?"

I second that knob Carnival be recognized as one of the mind blowing punk bands of the early 80's. I want to know more about punk bands in Minneapolis in the 70's. Dale Nelson at Dumb Manor used to play music by bands that were here in the early 70's on the west bank like Savage Reserection and The Chocolate Watch Band and The Balloon Farm. Well, these last two were maybe a little more psychodelic than punk but had some kind of resonance or feel or murmer like the beginnings of what influenced punk. Dale correct all this when you log on.

To add to the list: there was an industrial band in '82-'83 I think called The Flower Industry of Pompeii. It was Girard Fox and his brother Greg Fox and his girlfriend Betsy and Hilliary? Who else? Hilliary moved to a private town off the map outside of the perifery of Sanfrancisco. The people there want to be untouchables, have no tourists, deal only with those who accidently wander in, sounded allering.
Back to the subject: The Maggots, circa '82, Joe Maggot, Matt Cisler, Valery, Al Schroeder and Tim Piotrowski screaming and screeching.
Other Greats: Mommy log balls, Deformo, Better off Airport, (The Heroine Sheiks)- a current N.Y. band with Shannon Selberg a Mpls Stiff.

Hey Tim what ever happened to Patrick. He was around in the early eighties. I don't remember his last name but I think it was a four letter word. He had black hair, was thin as a rail, always talked about the great crooked things that he would do when grows up and becomes rich.

I wouldn't call the Heroin Sheiks a Minneapolis band, Shannon formed them after he moved out of town. And if you hadn't noticed we don't have moderators, so update the lists yourselves, if you want to include your favorite obscure bands.

The only member of Kindergarten I knew was Scott Makela. See his obit at the deathwatch page. Scott was awsome, but the band was kind of you know.

Yeah! The Tusslers were good, and they completely slipped my mind.


You mentioned them earlier alongside my name, but don't forget Figures in your list. Also, Superball 63 started in 1989 .. so they make the cut too.

I was in Destroy, More of a Hardcore band but started in 88. Dale the original guitar player had previously been in a band called Filthy Alliance with Dave Eger, Rat Boy and a guy from St. Paul who's name I can't remember, Darren something. I think they played once or twice with Misery.

In response to zomzom's comment "bands that sucked: insoc, etc." (Information Society)
I thought we were pretty cool in that we were doing something very unique and creative. It's true that when I was 19 I couldn't sing very well and we were still struggling to understand what songwriting was... but I suspect your (and others') problem with us was that we didn't have any guitars.
I invite you to listen to the last InSoc album I made on Cleopatra records a few years ago: "Don't Be Afraid". You can get it at CDNOW.com or any major chain store. I think it shows a lot of growth over 17 years and still a lot of creativity.
I have no comment on the fact that we spent 5 years as a top 40 band. The Top 40 comes for YOU, not the other way around. We never saw it coming.

The problem I had with Insoc had nothing to do with not having guitars. I am and always have been into electronics and synth bands.
I do remember the spurious electronic devices and haughty attitude as being the reason for my comments.
Nothing personal you understand, and it was many years ago.

I always dug Insoc, but in a very non-punk way. The closest Mpls ever got to Gary Numan. Plus a great James Brown cover!!!

A friend of mine gave me a dub of a St Paul band very similar to Insoc called Process Blue. No, not THAT process blue, this one's all synth and Speak N Spell voice. Anyone know anything about them? 83-ish...

Monty Wilkes, Replacements sound guy, had a band called "The Device", musta been '86, '87 or so, think they opened for the 'mats once or twice, Monty sang and played bass, Eric Von Rabbanow(SP?) on guitar...sorta a Duluth band, but I think they re-located to the cities around then. If ya wanna talk Duluth, there was the kinda cool "Iron Youth", who did Proletariat and Fang covers w/Monty on bass, late 70's/early 80's punk/pop obscurities like the Bronx Zoo and the Planets, and fairly awful "hardcore" like Ratrut and the Wood Goons...all best forgotten, trust me!
