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 mini-album, in its entirety, has been recorded by Carlos Arredondo at New Improved and will be completed in late Autumn to be pressed for a limited edition vinyl 10" LP and CD. The only thing is that the funds to complete the release is the only thing needed to get it done as well as funds to have the 10" shipped to all who pledge. This will be Surplus 1980's second release. The album title will be "Arterial Ends Here".

The funds raised for this project will be used to get the 10" pressed (a limited run of 300 copies on two variations on coloured vinyl) and additionally be pressed on CD (I still believe in CD's) which will be included with the 10" with the remainder of the CD's to be released individually. All funds will go 100% into this pressing and any additional funds raised will be used for shipping the release to all pledges.

Musicians, besides Moe! Staiano (drums, percussion, guitar, bass, piano, vocals), on this release will include guitarist Bill Wolter and Melne Murphy, Bassists Alee Karim and Vicky Grossi (also doubling on violin), percussionist Jordan Glenn, keyboardist Amar Chaudhary, alto clarinetist Aaron Novik, and on oboe, Kyle Bruckmann. Possible vocal guest from G.W. Sok, formerly of the Ex (and currently with the French band Cannibales & Vahinés).

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.
