Our Song of the Day is a very special astral-folk offering (think The Fuggs and ISB) from Jim Woehrle & Michael Yonkers. Borders of My Mind is the title track from a new reissue coming out on Drag City in January. The home-recorded LP features Yonkers with his pre-Microminiature Love psych-noise bandmate, Jim Woehrle and gets released on January 21st in tandem with another freshly unearthed Yonkers LP, Michael Lee Yonkers.
It was mainly due to ill fate that Yonkers went largely unnoticed for so long. Shortly after he recorded the tracks for his classic Microminiature Love in 1968 he was severely injured whilst working at a warehouse…an injured back changed his future but he carried on recording and self-releasing. Destijl Records released Microminiature Love in 2003 as a limited vinyl run before Sub Pop’s Andy Kotowicz signed Yonkers who said “If this stuff had been heard, we think it would have influenced the Stooges, Velvet Underground and the acts we love,”. These two releases on Drag City will place his music back in the limelight.
