Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


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.

Ahead of their album release, they released a music video for their song “Thrum a Dum”. “Next Time Read the Fine Print” was self-released on October 21st, and peaked at #24 in the NACC top 200 (North American College and Community Radio) as well coming in at #3 on the NACC top adds chart, beating out Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.
