about

This 20 song set was compiled by Rich and Glen Mattson long after the band disbanded, sometime around 2005. The recordings are crude, taken from various demo tapes released between 1988 and 1993, which were great and fun years for the band. Many people were asking for these tunes to be released, so here ya go, enjoy!

about

The Glenrustles Minneapolis, Minnesota

The Glenrustles were a great drunken rock and roll band in the late 80's - 90's Minneapolis music/drinking/tripping scene featuring the two heavy-footed Iron Range brothers Rich and Glen Mattson, singer/songwriter/guitarist and drumber (sic), respectively along with comedian-at-large (also from the Range) Jim Kennedy and bassist Russell Bergum, who was later replaced by Mpls' own Greg McAloon. ... more

Track Name: Rock and Roll Prevails
Hail, hail, hail
Rock and roll prevails!
Track Name: Abstain
Triskets, biscuits and bubbly goo
Heaven and hell, and nothing to do
Women and pockets and toys on the shelf
Repeating a single word to myself
"Abstain"
Track Name: Red's the Color
Make a wish
For you and I
When you see the first star tonight
I had a dream
Of you and I
And I was wearing a demon's disguise
Red's the color
Of my eyes tonight
Fire and brimstone
Comin' down alright
I shoulda tried
Instead I lied
And you believed every word I said
If I was true
I'd be with you
But I'm with the demon instead
Track Name: Dinosaurs
Dinosaurs played guitar
But didn't get too far
Dinosaurs like to growl
Dinosaurs growl so loud
Dinosaurs Vietnam
You can ask my mom (ask her now)
Dinosaurs are so cool
I used to draw them in school..
Track Name: Twisted
He was a good kid
Did what the good kids did
Collected baseball cards and played Nintendo
Liked MC Hammer, He liked the Beach Boys
He loved his mama and he loved his papa
He did the twist he did the squirm
He got all confused about girls
He'd pull their hair and pinch the ass
Now tell me where the hell did that come from?
If your reality's kinda twisted
It means you been going 'round in circles
And your perception of a twisted
That all depends on which side of the tracks your from
Got the fever in my finger
To destroy some ducks and wizards
Flicker flicker, flicker flicker
Feel the tension - ooh it's gettin' real thick
Do the twist do the crawl
What's the value of it all
Go to work, go to bed
Keep those crazy things out of my head
It's allright, it's all cool
When will I ever get to use the shit I learned in school
I can't remember anything
If I live to see it what will tomorrow bring
Another day, another night
I'm gonna twist with all my might
And then spin
And then spin
And then spin
