Description

Period on LP

Music freaks world-wide know now know Michael Yonkers as one of the most exciting sounds in psychedelia. However, although Michael Yonkers has been making music since the early 1960's, until the release of Micro miniature Love by DeStijl Records in 2002, he was a relatively obscure figure in the Minneapolis music scene. That might have been different if Sire Records would have released his psych classic Microminiature Love in 1968, as planned, but that was not to be. Shelved for decades, the world - or a small handful of the world - got to hear folk offerings like Grimwood. Things changed when Clint Simonson of Destijl stumbled on one of Michael's records - Border of My Mind - in the late 90's. Brothers Jim & Mike Blaha also lucked their way into Michael Yonkers world by a chance encounter with a 7" put out by Get Hip Records. All three set off to find this fascinating musician... and they did. While Simonson heard, fell in love with, and finally released Microminiature Love, the Blaha brothers and their band The Blind Shake chanced into a jam session with Yonkers. That jam was to lead to a fantastic collaboration by Michael Yonkers with the Blind Shake entitled Carbohydrates Hydrocarbons.
