T is for TAD


T is for TAD….

Unapologetic classic grunge…  TAD might not be one of the first names you think of when you think of the Seattle grunge movement back in the early 90’s, but boy were they a part of the scene.  I believe the first Sub Pop release was TAD back when TAD was just Tad Doyle’s solo endeavour.  They were there from the start.  They went on tour in a tiny van with an unknown band at the time, who we would all later know as Nirvana.  They are heavy as shit, and scary as hell (probably because of their massive leader who liked to stage dive).  I didn’t really know too much about this band (aside from a handful of singles) until i watched their documentary, and got to see the whole story, interesting stuff!  Grunge at it’s grungiest.

If yer interested in learning more about TAD, check out the doc (on Youtube), or the albums ‘God’s Balls’ and ‘8 Way Santa’ (also can be found on Youtube) and kick back in some old school flannel and get stoned.  It’s the best way to do it!
