Fatboy was the first studio album by the jam bandmoe. It was first released in 1992 as a cassette of which only 1,000 were released. The band re-released the album in September 1999 on CD.
The album was recorded in the Spring of 1991 at Happy House Studios, the second floor of an apartment in Buffalo, NY, which was owned/operated by Andrew Buscher. Over ten evenings, the album was recorded and mixed. The band used sixteen track audio for the recording and used overdubs for vocals and solos. The bands original drummer, Ray Schwartz, left the group between the tracking and mixing in order to attend graduate school in New Paltz, NY. Soon after the album was finished, the band took on Jim Loughlin as their new drummer.
