Surplus 1980 is a project that came from the ashes of my old former band, Mute Socialite, which split up in 2009. It is a collection of songs that were former ideas that were meant to be used for Mute Socialite, but never really made it as well as three cover songs. Surplus 1980 is a post-punk band of a rotating line up of some fine musicians, many extending from great bands to be heard on this project including members from the Ex, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, and Faun Fables, among others, including Mute Socialite. The album in its entirety has been recorded by Dan Rathbun and is completed and ready to be pressed for a limited edition vinyl LP and CD. The only thing is that the funds to complete the release is the only thing needed to get it done.
The funds raised for this project will be used to get the LP pressed (a limited run of 250 copies with some 100 on coloured vinyl) and additionally be pressed on CD (I still believe in CD's) as well as a download coupon. All funds will go 100% into this pressing and any additional funds raised will be used for the next studio time for recording the next album.
All those who help with your financial support and help is greatly appreciated and will be thanked personally through some means of communication. Thank you for making this be a reality.
