Randall Payton's songs range from weathered Westerbergian ballads to dark Dylanic meanderings, from caustic Costellovian canticles to piquant Pollardesque pummelings.

Album Notes
This wildly eclectic, eternally under-the-radar project features the genre-fluid songs of frontman/guitarist Randall Payton. Onstage, the band's classic two guitar/bass/drum line-up amplifies his lyric-driven indie-Americana and journeyman pop.

Payton and/or his various bands have shared the stage with Clem Snide, Centro-matic, Motorgoat/Quasi, Hazel, The Long Winters, David Dondero, and actor/director John Cameron Mitchell, among other luminary acts.

After working together in other projects in the 80's (Fallgoboom, Dumbwaiters), Randall Payton recruited Pete Lampe (and drummer Mark Pedersen) to form Chez Stadium, with only a few days' notice, for a weekend gig.

The trio continued on for local live shows until Payton took up the lap steel to briefly join The Boys From Ipanema in 2002. When that project dissolved, Payton brought Lampe into the home studio of 44 Long's Brian Berg to begin work on what would become Chez Stadium's debut, Freshman Slump.

After the CD's 2003 release, drummer Adam Mack and guitarist Chris Paine joined to play live throughout 2004. While the band then parted ways, Payton continued to write, perform and sporadically record as Chez Stadium, releasing the Further Ado collection in 2015 with an array of hired players and willing volunteers.

Reconnecting with drummer Mark Wills (Dumbwaiters), Payton, Lampe and Wills began casual recording at Wills' studio in 2017. Yet another gig offer led to recruiting George Kaylor (bass) and guitarist Grant Cumpston for live shows. Lampe rejoined in 2019 to continue sessions leading to the release of the Rusty EP.
