About

The year was 1987. It was in the back of a short-lived CD store that a band was born.  The band consisted primarily of me and Todd Lederman. We decided to name this band Spudlok

We tinkered around on various types of tape recorders and instruments trying to make music that we would enjoy. It was done for fun, and every week we would take our creations to the Baldwin-Wallace Campus radio station and whatever we did was played by our friend Evan, who had a show he called "The Avant Garde".  In these songs, we celebrated our wild, minimalistic, adventurous, and sometimes hilarious rockin' music full of life, mistakes, and pure musical passion. You can never get enough of that.

In 1992, we self-released a collection of our recordings as a cassette album. It’s called "BIH!", and we gave most of the cassettes away. We still love this recording, and feel it also deserves a wider audience. That’s where you come in. 

We want to make this album available on the greatest music format ever known: the vinyl LP record. Those things are becoming popular again, if you haven’t noticed. This album can finally see the light of day, but we need your help to do it. Through your contributions, this album can reach a new audience, and you can listen to it on your hi-fi in glorious remastered Spudlok Stereo. There are rewards - obviously the album itself, but check out the list and make your pledge. The funds are not only going for the manufacture of the album, but also the remastering of our original analog tapes, where they exist, conversion of our graphics and liner notes to decent looking cover art, and the fees involved in paying for the royalties on the one cover song we intend to put on this lovely little slab.

Spudlok. A band. Yeah. A band. Back again, for the first time, on your stereo.

Once this project sees the light of day, who knows what will happen in the future? More music? Bigger and brighter things? Pledge and join us on the voyage, won't you?

Risks and challenges

Research has already begun on finding the original analog tapes that make the songs on this album. Some of the songs were recorded in digital form, albeit crudely, but every step will be taken to make this sound as good as possible. We will also be bound by the pressing schedule of whatever facility we choose to make the actual record. Updates will keep you posted. We also plan on making a digital download available, but the real prize is what will end up on your phonograph.
Once the project is funded, the records will definitely be a reality. You will not be charged unless the goal is reached. So if you want it as bad as we do, pledge and share this with your friends and on your social platforms, and thank you in advance.
