About the band
404 Not Found - spoken word meets avant-garde rock
404 Not Found is the musical group responsible for "Paper Cuts" and 5
other CDs. It originally started in 1995 as an electronic music project
featuring Todd Bradley, and a long list of guest performers.
For the first 6 years, the group was concerned solely with studio recording, and
created 4 independently produced CDs during that period.
2002 marked a new direction for the project, as it
solidified into a core group of musicians focused on live performance of poetry
and music. This blossomed into 404 Not Found's first live CD, "Warts and All."
After refining their live sound through performances all over the Denver area,
the group went into the studio in 2003 and recorded "Paper Cuts."
Todd Bradley is the founder and leader of the
group, and plays keyboards. He grew up playing piano and guitar, and
performed in a number of fun but short lived heavy metal, punk, and new wave
cover bands in the 80's and early 90's. After finishing graduate school at
the University of Colorado in 1992, he started assembling a home recording
studio and recorded several hours of original material before starting the
404 Not Found project in 1995. Todd' musical influences range from Black Sabbath
to Yes to Devo. His personal website is

Gene Sobczak is the group's bassist, and plays electric fretless bass
guitar and electric fretless upright bass.

fretted bass guitar for several tracks from "Paper Cuts" while the group was
looking for a full time bass player.
