TAD - 8-Way Santa

Year: 1991
This is TAD's second full length album release, and final release on northwestern label Sub Pop. This album bounces in between upbeat riffage and slow crushing chord strangling, and keeps a pretty brisk pace throughout. Some of my favorite TAD songs came out on this release, including Jack Pepsi, Candi, and Jinx.

IF YOU'VE NEVER HEARD OF TAD--YOU ARE MISSING OUT ON LIFE. Fucking download this: TAD - 8-Way Santa

Ahhhh yesss!!! Fuckin' Tad! Loved this band since stealing a batch of CDs from my college radio station to 'analyze for programming purposes'. It was the Salt Lick EP. It's been nothing but pacific northwest beautiful with each new (or older) Tad offering. Inhaler comes to mind as being just as nicely twisted and heavy. A ton of bricks shouldn't feel so inviting. It must be the air up there. Or the herb. Something. But it's bottled for you in a very large boy with a guitar and a humming tube amp called Tad. Thanks for this man.
