OTTO’S CHEMICAL LOUNGE
DUMPSTER JUICE, THE CARNEGIES, THE PSYCHEDELIC SOUNDS OF:, and JOE LYON MAGICIAN OF THE LIVING DEAD
Formed in 1990 in Uptown Minneapolis. Tom Duclos & Chris Rowland - knowing in advance the name "Dumpster Juice" would never leave the memory or taste buds of anyone who had ever stumbled across the stuff - called upon drummer John Bigelow. After consulting with Duclos & Rowland over large quantities of alcohol the decision was made to hold an abrupt practice at Bigelows brother Kevin's Uptown apartment. Duclos, Rowland, John Bigelow & Kevin Bigelow became Dumpster Juice. In June 1992 drummer Todd Petterson answered an ad Dumpster Juice left at the drum shop he just happened to be working at and within a week Todd learned the entire collection.
Current members: Rowland (Vocals), Todd Petterson (Drums), Steve Post (Bass), Kevin Bigelow (Guitar).
Appearing first in the early 1980s, The Magician of the Living Dead is a magic act sent up in the tradition of the exploitation films of the '70s and early '80s. Promising frightening chills and thrills, then like the exploitation film tactics of the bait and switch end up delivering a variety of mishaps and comedy with a thrill or two along the way!
