Although the Minneapolis group Vicious Vicious began as Erik Appelwick's moniker for his debut album recorded entirely on four-track, Blood and Cover, it soon grew into a full-blown live band when Darren Jackson, Alex Oana, and Martin Dosh climbed aboard. With the quartet hashing out arrangements of Appelwick's home recordings, they began making waves in Minneapolis, and the local press started to take notice, earning Appelwick a nomination for best rock recording by the Minnesota Music Academy in 2002. The group earned another nomination by the same academy a year later for best pop band. Soon thereafter, Vicious Vicious secured a contract with small Florida indie, Twentyseven Records, who reissued Blood and Cover in September of 2003 with the added amenities of national distribution and press.
