Boris and the Spiders
From The Secret History of the Cedar Valley
The band was formed by a very skilled guitar player named Boris Sodoma while he was a foreign exchange student at NU. The first practice session took place with Ben Wilson on bass and Colin McElligatt on drums, but the lineup ended up being Boris, Ben, Brad Richter on drums and Joe Wartick on keyboards and vocals.
The group recorded 8 songs across the school year, but ultimately dissolved after Boris left NU since he was the only true musician in the group. The band never played live, with the exception of a show in the Wilson's basement which was attended only by Annika Anderberg.
Boris' whereabouts today are unknown. He moved to France, and his house was rumored to have burned down soon after he moved there.
