Shufflepuck is Shufflepuck's first and only full-length record.

Overview

Led by longtime Weezer collaborators Adam Orth and Justin Fisher, Shufflepuck attained some recognition in the LA rock scene in the early 90's. They were eventually signed to Interscope Records. Sometime after finishing the album, however, the record deal did not pan out. As Orth describes on his website under a list of his professional experiences[1]:

Secured multi-album recording contract under legendary recording industry executive Tom Whalley. Wrote, recorded and produced 1 full-length record for Interscope. Performed internationally to support.

The story is elaborated on in a fan-hosted YouTube playlist of the album[2]. The veracity of this story is unverified:

Everything was looking good until their A&R guy left and the band quickly became a non-priority at the label - causing several release dates to pass without the album seeing the light of day. By '97 Shufflepuck had gotten out of their Interscope contract, but by that point few other labels were interested, and the band broke up on stage at a show not long after.[citation needed]
