Love Gramps by Michael J. Bowman, from GAJOOB's First Compilation Tape From 1990 - GAJOOBilation One

I've managed to locate the old cassette master of GAJOOB's first compilation tape from 1990 as well as a few of the original sleeves. I may post a track here and there over the next little bit.

Track 1 is "Love Gramps" by Michael J. Bowman. Mike has gone by MJB90, CLOUD, Velveeta Heartbreak and other names. This song is from his Fuzzy Logic cassette released in 1989. Bowman illustrated the cover for GAJOOB 7 and we collaborated on a song after he paid me a visit and we jammed a bit in the basement studio I shared with Joe Maki at the time. Recently, he was the cover designer on The Lord Of the Rings paperback trilogy published by Del Rey.

Welcome to GAJOOB Magazine

By home, 2014-10-05
Welcome to GAJOOB Magazine

GAJOOB began life as a print zine about cassette culture in 1987, edited and published by Bryan F. Baker. It's been online in various forms since 1992. is partly archive of many thousands of indie, underground and DiY cassettes, CDRs, vinyl and other albums, as well as letters, photos, and other material sent to GAJOOB over the years. I am busy digitizing and building an online library of it.

GAJOOB also features new releases, focusing, as always, on music with a more or less independent ethic. We list digital-only and netlabel online releases as well. Our listings often include interviews and discussions, embedded streaming audio, video, photos, letters, etc. Artist profiles evolve over time as these things are added. 

See GAJOOB on Youtube  where we vlog about new and old music featured here.
