I’m sure most of you are waiting this for years: on April 21st for Record Store Day TAD will be out with “Quick and Dirty” (vinyl and digital album via Bandcamp for MVD/Incineration Ceremony ). The historical heavy-than-heaven grunge band is one of the most appreciated both from Seattle’s Scene fans and the straight metallers grown in 80s and 90s. Their last works (studio and live) are dated 1995, Tad Doyle nowadays has his own studio (Witch Ape), his own more-heavy-than-Tad band Brother Of Sonic Cloth, his solo carrier as a pianist and some other project releated with music.
DETAILS AND TRACKLIST
QUICK side. Studio recordings from sessions at two different locations, Jupiter Studios with Martin Feveryear, and Zachary Landsdowne at Electric Eel, both in Seattle in 1999. These songs were never before released until now (even if ‘Mummified Cop’ is on YouTube). This is the last incarnation of the band, a three piece consisting of original members Tad Doyle and Kurt Danielson with the new drummer Mike Mongrain.
DIRTY side. Live at the Crocodile Cafe in Seattle 1995. “After the departure of guitarist Gary Thorstensen and the release of Infrared Riding Hood, Tad, Kurt and drummer Josh Sinder are chronicled as a three piece that brought forth a powerfully dense sound and feel”.
Quick Side A:
Let’s Go For A Ride
Signs – Amnesomnia
Dirty Side B (Live):
Hatt Slough Bridge Deathwish Trip (bonus track not on the vinyl release)
If you can’t wait to give a listen here you can hear ‘Mummified Cop’ and the live version of ‘Too Marks’. And then you can order “Quick And Dirty” for 11 bocks.
