Performer Notes

  • Personnel: Michael Yonkers (vocals, guitar, electronics); Jim Yunker (drums).
  • Liner Note Author: Karl Ikola.
  • Recording information: Dove Studios, Bloomington, MN (1968-1969); Michael Yonkers' Parents' Basement (1968-1969).
  • Featuring the kind of aural insanity associated mostly with later eras and bands like Pere Ubu in '70s Cleveland or even Sonic Youth in early '80s NYC, MICROMINIATURE LOVE is an astounding and scary achievement in proto-noise rock circa 1968. Its creator, Michael Yonkers, had haunted proms throughout the Minneapolis area in the mid '60s before modifying his pedals and guitar to one up his hero, Link Wray, with a frenzy of saw-toothed distortion and eerie riffs.
  • Lyrically concerned with (and musically evocative of) violence, mental anguish, paranoia, and war, MICROMINIATURE LOVE is as disturbing a soundtrack--particularly "Kill the Enemy" and "Boy in the Sandbox"--to the Vietnam era as anything in the Doors or Creedence catalogs. Lost for decades due to a fizzled contract with Sire, the album resurfaced--first via DeStijl Records, and then Subpop--in the mid '00s to critical raves among the record geek set. Light years ahead of its time, MICROMINIATURE LOVE is a thankfully uncovered gem and an essential purchase for fans of freaked-out psych, noise rock, and proto-punk.
