Formed in the fall of 2016, Vassar College’s Spud Cannon originally came together as a group of complete strangers. Setting out to make their own brand of “music you could dance to at a dormitory basement party”, they quickly developed a repertoire of original material and began playing house parties.

After winning Vassar College’s Battle of the Bands, the band flew out to Los Angeles to cut their debut record in 7 days in guitarist Jackson Lewis’s basement. While there, they played a lone gig at the Peppermint Club that while sparsely attended, earned them the fandom of one attendee: Actor Gary Oldman. Appreciating their raucous upbeat sound, which literally shattered glass-wear due to the noise level, Oldman lent his voice to the album’s opening track.

“Next Time Read the Fine Print” was self-released on October 21st 2017, and became a surprise DIY sleeper hit on the college radio circuit, peaking at #24 in the North American College Radio top 200.

Their sophomore effort is due out in late 2018.
