Cracker Japz

Cracker Japz


One of the first bands to be signed to Aluminum Records, the Cracker Japz is an acoustic “pop, rock n’ roll” duo comprised of Max Kim, impresario and primary songwriter of the band, and Troy Schedin, his trusty aide from Chicago. Eschewing the DIY punk aesthetic that defines many of their labelmates, the Cracker Japz captivated hearts and souls of Buffalonians for a brief two years before disbanding due to the hasty departure of Troy Schedin.
