Fever Dream: 83′

In 1983 Duluth, MN based new wave group Fever Dream self- released what is believed to be their one and only album. Outside of the ten songs on this record and a series of mysterious videos little else is known about its creators. Chaperone Records (Retribution Gospel Choir, Southwire, et al) is pleased to announce the re-release of this obscure gem from northern Minnesota.

And how exactly did Chaperone come in contact with this relic? Marc Gartman, a musician living and working in Duluth, MN (Two Many Banjos, Coyote) found the LP while searching through vinyl at the Record Cave in Superior, WI. Intrigued by the artwork and the 99-cent price tag he figured it was worth the chance. What he found on it he deemed worthy of the attention of head Chaperone Bob Monahan. Bob was interested in putting out the album but only if Gartman agreed to play shows in support of the songs. In the spirit of how and when the music was produced Marc plays on a vintage keyboard and drum machine.

It should be noted that while there were attempts to locate the original artist(s) who created Fever Dream little has been discovered. The debut album sleeve held very little information and outside of a couple of local barflies maybe remembering something, not much else is known. Anyone with any further information is encouraged to contact Gartman or Chaperone Records.
