John Roeser Avenue ON MANITOU ISLAND/IN HOT DOG CITY Vinyl Record

John Roeser Avenue ON MANITOU ISLAND/IN HOT DOG CITY Vinyl Record
A Minnesota native now ensconced in Chicago, JR began playing the murky basements of St. Paul and Minneapolis in the equally murky and loud outfits Powerwagon and Silver Rocket Band. An invitation from his brother Ed of Urge Overkill lured him to Chicago, and he and Ed formed Electric Airlines, playing local and regional shows with the likes of Dinosaur Jr. and Guided by Voices. After an escape to the wild west for a season as a ski bum (and bus driver) JR returned to Chicago to record a 7' under the name Hot Dog City. JR also joined the bands Fast Product and Big Buildings, this time as a drummer. After a few years of HDC being on the back burner, JR was contacted by an old Minnesota acquaintance who was now running a record label in Minneapolis. To make a long story short, demos were sent, enthusiasm was expressed, a band was assembled, and now John Roeser Avenue 'On Manitou Island/In Hot Dog City' is released on vinyl and as a download on Mpls Ltd. We hope you like it.
