After about 32 years of trying to write music, a year of recording stuff, and a few months of frantic planning, it’s here: the debut (and who knows, likely final) album by my band, The Supreme Soviet of Love.
See Red goes onsale today at your favorite music online music retailer:
The album includes a few songs that date back to the eighties – “Fourth of July”, “Chicago” and “Great Northern Avenue” are songs I used to play with bands back at the Seventh Street Entry way back when.
Others – “The Wonders Each New Day Brings”, “Almost Monday” and “Snake”, among others – are things I wrote in the past year, largely to prove to myself that the whole thing wasn’t just a nostalgia exercise.
And a couple others – “Shotgun”, “The Ugly LIghts” – split the difference; they’re lyrical reboots of ideas that’ve been knocking around my head for years, sometimes decades.
Anyway – the album is on sales as of today:
Coming soon (like, probably today) on:
- iHeart Radio
- YouTube Music
And hey – it’s priced to move!
And I’d be remiss if I didn’t remind y’all one last time:
Tomorrow (Saturday) Night: Elephant in the Room (rock and roll covers, ’50s-’90s) at the Sundance in Maple Grove
8-12PM. No cover.
Sunday Night: Album Release Party; The Supreme Soviet of Love at O‘Gara’s in Saint Paul

Hope to see you there!
