Moe! Staiano: Surplus 1980 (Dephine Knormal Musik)
Label: Dephine Knormal Musik    
Released in: USA    

"Surplus 1980 is a project that came from the ashes of my old former band, Mute Socialite, which split up in 2009. It is a collection of songs that were former ideas that were meant to be used for Mute Socialite, but never really made it as well as three cover songs. Surplus 1980 is a post-punk band of a rotating line up of some fine musicians, many extending from great bands to be heard on this project including members from the Ex, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, and Faun Fables, among others, including Mute Socialite."-Moe! Staiano

Also available on LP.
