Found by: Peter Ball, My Mind's Eye Records

During the early-to-mid 1970s, a new music scene in Cleveland, Ohio was flourishing. Dubbed ClePunk years later by some, this scene included bands like The Electric Eels, Mirrors, The Styrenes, Rocket From The Tombs, and Pere Ubu (who went on to critical acclaim years later). Nowadays, thanks to many compilations released by record labels such as Smog Veil, these bands have received acclaim for their ahead-of-its-time scuzzy punk sound and nutzoid noise-making. However, it appears one group, known as Bernie and the Invisibles, slipped through the cracks.

About the Band

Fronted by the lead singer and guitarist Bernie Joelson, the band consist of three members with Peter Ball at the drums and Tich Erod at the bass[1]. The band received a fair amount of praise, notably from Pagans lead singer Mike Hudson. Although they recorded an album worth of material in the 1970s, the only track that has ever surfaced is "I Don't Know Where I Am", which is included on the 2002 Smog Veil compilation Pie and Ears: Volume 2.

All Possibilities Are Open

Peter Ball, the drummer for the band, recorded songs from the band back in 1979. This recording wouldn't be digitized until decades later in the 2000's and in September 14th, 2018, with the help of the record label, My Mind's Eye, commercially released the band's songs on a long-playing record (LP)[2]. This LP, entitled "All Possibilities Are Open" composes of 15 songs all recorded back in 1979 by Peter Ball, and also includes "I Don't Know Where I Am".
