Iowa Basement Tapes #42 - 4/18/2019


Night Listeners -


I am all over the place tonight with tunes from every part of the state: Sioux City, Des Moines, Waterloo, Waverly, Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Clinton, Keokuk, and Dubuque. I was presented with an email earlier in the week from Bensmasher sharing with me some really interesting finds. One of the most interesting is a group from Clinton called Mississippi Belle. Two boat captains who made a record using a keyboard a drum machine. I love this stuff.
