Iowa Basement Tapes #16 10-18-18

Night Listeners of 98.9 FM KFMG –

We are half way through October and I am in the mood for blues. My buddy Buffalo Bonker brought me a pile of Iowa blues tunes and I’m going to dig into them with Scarlet Runner from Gilbertville and The Graveyard Blues Band from Cedar Rapids (there is also rad avant-garde jazz band from Lansing, MI called Graveyards that everyone should check out). I also met a stone mason who talked to me about the Iowa metal and punk scene of the 80s. He talked a lot about Voodoo Gearshift which made me finally want to check them out. I also got Sioux City Pete with a song from Necro Blues (I had to omit the title).
