Spud Bucket Story

Born from the ashes of Those XCleavers, Tom T (aka Lesions) formed this band named after a bucket of plumbing parts. 

Sounding in the vein of Tom Petty meets Cracker with a dash of Rockpile, Spud Bucket continues to create fun danceable music.

Shepherd Express Review - 
Spud Bucket, musically speaking, happen to be The Pugilists’ older–if not necessarily wiser–brothers. Frontman Tom T. began writing songs as [sic] member of Those X-Cleavers. The trio’s laundry list of previous bands includes 19 T-Shirts, Women’s Liberace, The Ugly Ones and Voot Warnings. Recently they have been getting notable airplay out of town on WFMU with “Fraction of a Reaction.”


Show Promo

Tree Down Yet? @ Circle A, 8 p.m. 

For the last Saturday of the decade, the plan is simple: three bands, no waiting. The in-your-face roar of Resist Her Transistor will be followed by one horse town’s mercurial songwriting and Spud Bucket’s timeless sound. In fact, Spud Bucket’s “Fraction of a Reaction” has recently gotten airplay on East Orange’s WFMU-FM.
