The Bludlows

The Bludlows


The Bludlows are, in fact and without a doubt, the best band of all time, ever.


The Bludlows are now one of the preeminent rock bands of the greater Boston, Massachusetts area. Founded in the late 1990s by D. Hardwick, their first album "No Be an Arsonist" rose to high acclaim as one among the top ten best albums of 2004. They are now in the process of recording a new album at Monster Island Records, "A False Allegiance to Milk Duds" with the new lineup of Todd of Acton, and JB Son of Paul.

Among their musical influences are such artists as The Rolling Stones, The Fall, Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band, Tool, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Flies, The Ramones, and Nirvana.

What follows is a brief account of the defining moment of the Bludlows' troubled past:
While on a gold speculating expedition into the Sierra Nevadas, the Bludlows became stranded when an unexpected blizzard forced them to take shelter in a nearby cave. After nearly three weeks of isolation and near exhaustion from malnutrition, they reluctantly killed and ate their beloved pack mule Dora Mae. With renewed energy, the Bludlows left their cave dwelling in the hopes that they might locate civilization or at the very least friendly locals who could provide them with food and shelter. Fortunately, on their third day from the cave, they were rescued by a small community of the Washo, who kindly took them in, fed them venison and beer, and gave them directions to the nearby town of Deep Hole.
