Tina And The B-Sides
Tina And The B-Sides
Tina and the B-Sides was formed out of the edgy new wave rock scene that was Minneapolis in the late ’80’s.

Schlieske had caught the bug early and had been working the bar scene for several years before she was even legal by sneaking into clubs to perform as early as 1984. Gradually she assembled a band playing a tight fusion of bluesy rock folk-inspired and roughly hewn Americana. They played every club that would have them and by 1989 recorded their debut album Tina and the B-Side Movement. It was released on her own Movement Records, which also became home to 1992’s “Young Americans” and 1994’s “Monster”.

Pursuing a more rootsy vision of American rock & roll, Tina and the B-Sides (or sometimes B-Side Movement) went on to become one of the most popular bar bands in the Mid West during the 1990’s developing a cult following that endures to this day.

The line-up consisted of Pete Young and Patrik Tanner on guitar (later Troy Norton), bassist Jeremy Plumb, drummers Joel Richmond and Bill Oehrlein (later Ron Caron) and her sister Laura Schlieske on vocals.

The band had won several local music awards by that time and was much in demand in nearby Chicago, Milwaukee, Madison and various other Mid Western cities and towns. Word of mouth and relentless touring helped the band sell well over 50,000 CD’s and caught the attention of several major labels.
