Chuzzlewit began in St. Paul. MN in 1995 when a guy named Greg left the band he had been playing in and decided to record his own songs at home. He released several cassettes on his own label, Low Voltage. Several European labels have released Chuzzlewit albums over the years, leading some to believe that Chuzzlewit is, in fact, European. Actually, Chuzzlewit is from the midwestern United States, having lived at various times in Minnesota, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Wisconsin, and Iowa. All of Chuzzlewit's songs are recorded at home, using a 4-track (until it broke) and a laptop.
