The Romulans, one of several bands going by the same name, was a psychedelic rock band based in Madison, Wisconsin and Minneapolis, Minnesota. The band members all used the surname, Romulan, on their first two releases. Guitarist and vocalist Kevin Hagen founded the band in 1989 with bassist Michelle Waterman. The Romulans drew their influences from 1960's US garage and psychedelia, and from 1960's UK mod and psychedelic bands as well as Milwaukee's Plasticland. Kevin Hagen and guitarist Dave Junker penned most of the songs. Drummer Tom Hamer was with the band for 2 years and played on the band's early recorded work. He was replaced by Steve Laux, who stayed with the band until its demise in 1994.
The Romulans released three 7" singles and one full length CD. They performed live in Madison, Milwaukee, Chicago, Minneapolis, and Iowa City numerous times. The band toured as far as Cleveland, Tampa, Austin, and San Diego. The Romulans often utilized a light show that was created and projected by Steve Wessing.
