David Faas (May 23, 1951-December 4, 2020)

 


It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Dave Faas, bassist of Soup, and the band's last surviving member. He fought for several years with poor health, and yesterday his battle ended. We are currently uploading Soup's two full-length albums, as well as some live and studio material that has gone unissued. They are dedicated in his memory. RIP Dave. You will not be forgotten.

Target library complete!

As of today, every link is active in the Target and Tee Pee audio archives. Every known record shipped carrying a Target of Tee Pee label is now online for the world to hear. This is a huge milestone for us, since beginning this project 6 years ago. Thank you to everyone who has supported us, and everyone who has been willing to share audio transfers or donate/sell us discs to fill in our gaps.

The next step is to complete the physical archive. To do this, we need to acquire clean copies of 5 releases, and upgrade 2 poor records we currently have. Once this is complete, we will begin the process of making high resolution transfers to build a new permanent archival-grade audio master library. This will allow us to provide better audio on the site, and furnish both the University of Wisconsin's music archive and any possible commercial enterprises with professional grade audio for future projects. Please contact us if you have interested in donating or selling any discs, reel to reel tapes, photos, posters, etc. or allowing us to scan and photograph such items.

Also, don't forget, if you were in one of these bands, we want to hear your stories! The legacy of Wisconsin music is more than just the songs, it is the history behind the music!!
