Funded! This project was successfully funded on April 13, 2012.


After playing together for almost 3 years, The Bitchin' Aardvarks are set to cram 20+ songs into their first album, Lottery Winner.

Our first album is called Lottery Winner, and it's a 20-song extravaganza that we want you to be a part of.

We've been playing music for a few years now and to date the only recordings we have are either from live shows or from someone's basement.  Now that we're finally getting around to making a full length album, we want to go all out.

That's why we're going to record 20 songs (over 70 minutes of music)!  Influenced by bands like Rancid and NOFX, we think there are few things better than a CD that's maxed out with music.  While we don't want to give everything away, here is a partial track listing (in no particular order):

1. Lottery Winner
2. She Ain't Got No Teeth (But I Don't Care)
3. Skalet Fever
4. Outta Time
5. What a Show
6. Not the Same
7. Back in the Day
8. This Name Will Never Die
9. In the Garage
10. The Other Side
11. Brigid Sheets
12. Paradise
13. It's Been Years
14. We Are Never Alone
15. One More For W
16. My Friends
17. ?????
18. ?????
19. ?????
20. ?????

    Phil's songbook. This has high sentimental value and we don't expect anyone to pledge this amount, but if you want to fund our entire project then that's a trade we'll gladly make with a person who obviously cares about our music that much. Phil used this book to compose the lyrics to every song he's ever written with The Bitchin' Aardvarks, including several that have been lost to history, and some that haven't even been played by the band yet. It is truly one of a kind.
