Mark Owen Nutto & The Unemployed Teachers

The Unemployed Teachers formed as a jazz-rock-folk band to explore songs being penned by Mark Owen Nutto. It was comprised of musicians from urban Hoboken New Jersey and rural Hunterdon County. The Bands first release, "All that Exists from the Lost Chronicles of Ancient ZOR" (1986) received substantial radio airplay in Hoboken NJ, Manhattan NY, and the surrounding NYC area. The Bands second release, "Love and Folk Songs from the Central Plains of ZOR" (1988) expanded the bands following and airplay into the Newark and New Brunswick areas. Following this, the band went into a period of dormancy as members graduated from college and dispersed. In 2006, the release of "The End of an Empire and the Birth of a Wax Tadole" completed the ZOR trilogy that started way back in 1986. It also marked the year that the band found itself back onto radio and also to the return of live performances in the New York City area. In 2014, a new release, "Pavlov's Chalkboard", marked this bands first foray outside of the ZOR Trilogy. It featured several guest performances; most notably, Jon Carin of Pink Floyd, on "Running with the Wind" and Greg Hawkes of The Cars, on "Little Child". Pavlov's Chalkboard, is perhaps the bands most accessible release to date, and is finding itself heard outside of their underground indie fan base and into a wider general audience.
