Tad - 8-Way Santa (Re-issue) (Deluxe Edition) (CD) Cover Art Tad - 8-Way Santa (Re-issue) (Deluxe Edition) (CD)



Yes, you read it right. We finally got our collective shit together and the long-unavailable, classic discography of beloved and iconic Seattle band, TAD – God’s Balls (1989), Salt Lick (1990), 8-Way Santa (1991), and assorted singles from the band’s 1988-1992 run – will finally receive the deluxe reissue treatment.

Producer & engineer Jack Endino (who produced God’s Balls, TAD’s first full-length) has lovingly remastered all of the recordings from the original tapes. God’s Balls, Salt Lick and 8-Way Santa will be available throughout the known universe on November 4th of this very year.

8-Way Santa (1991) In 1991, after tens of thousands of miles on the road in support ofGod’s Balls and Salt Lick, and a run of powerful EPs/singles, TAD released their second full-length album, 8-Way Santa. Recorded at Smart Studios in Madison, WI with Butch Vig, whose work with Killdozer the band admired, 8-Way Santa finds TAD pushing their sound in new directions. Not a band to rest on its laurels, TAD began to add melodic touches to their sound, as evidenced by the lead single, “Jinx.” 8-Way Santa was the last record with the original TAD lineup, and their last album for Sub Pop before jumping to a major label.

God’s Balls (1989), TAD’s punishing, noise-drenched debut album, was recorded with Jack Endino at Reciprocal Recording in Seattle in 1988 and released early the following year. In addition to their usual arsenal of guitars, bass, and drums, the band employed a variety of unusual instruments – an empty gas tank from a car, a hacksaw, a large brass tube from a microwave transmitter, CB radio mics, a cello bow used on cymbals to emulate guitar feedback – to thunderous effect, adding a Neubauten-esque clang to the band’s rock riffs. After releasing God’s Balls, TAD flew to Europe with Nirvana for both bands’ first European tour. The now-legendary, month-long tour took the bands to the UK, Ireland, Scotland, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Italy, Denmark and Sweden.

Salt Lick (1990) After their 1989 debut album, God’s Balls, TAD continued to write and record, releasing a string of singles and the Salt Lick EP between 1989 and 1990. Salt Lick features the single “Wood Goblins,” the video for which MTV banned because it was, to the delicate eyes of MTV programmers, “too ugly.” The sounds of Salt Lick are, indeed, wonderfully ugly, thanks in part to the involvement of noise-rock technician Steve Albini (Big Black, Shellac, Nirvana, The Jesus Lizard), who recorded the EP. The band continued to release singles and gain momentum in the press. As TAD himself puts it: “Lyrically we had a lot of subject matter that was meant to be tongue-in-cheek from the beginning but that was presented by both Sub Pop and us as true-to-life. The press took it all seriously and began to feed on and ravenously devour the mythology we created.”

Tank 86 - Rise (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art Tank 86 - Rise (IMPORT) (CD)



The music on Rise is firmly rooted in the stoner and sludge tradition. Tank86 reminds me somewhat of early Mastodon and a less jazzy Intronaut, but with the same hellbent desire to deliver some high quality grooves. They aren’t afraid to venture into doom metal country as well. Rise by Tank86 holds its own against anything their American counterparts like Sourvein, Zoroaster, Intronaut, Black Tusk and Minsk can throw at them.

Tekhton - Summon the Core (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art Tekhton - Summon the Core (IMPORT) (CD)



The pace is slow, slow, slow, and Tekhton have clearly spent a lot of time listening to classic doom metal like Cathedral and Saint Vitus. But they also incorporate cool dissonant chords and long, extended instrumental passages of pretty pastoral arpeggios and delicate melody, but where a lot of bands that use quiet melodic parts to build up into loud, epic crescendos, Tekhton generally use them to wind down a song that started off crushing. Long drawn out droning riffs alternate with more traditional Sabbathian hooks and some angular twists and turns, and the vocals are a strained gruff roar that reminds me of someone, but I can't put my finger on it. At various points, Tekhton remind me of Melvins, Cathedral, and Mogwai, a combination of quiet dreamy instrumentals, lumbering intricate sludge rock and primordial doom, but they don't actually sound like any of 'em, instead coming out with a debut that stands as one of the more creative sludge/doom albums.

Telestrion - Self Titled (CD) Cover Art Telestrion - Self Titled (CD)

Featuring members of Plaster and Qualone. Includes a cover of Pink Floyd's "Astronomy Domine".

Open the door to your mind and take a ride with Telestrion. Let their brand of heavy cosmic rock and roll take you on a journey to the deepest reaches of inner and outer space, singing a tune, clapping your hands and stomping your feet the whole way. Musically, Telestrion's multitude of diverse influences (old and new) give way to a sound that is fresh, distinct, and uniquely their own. Andy Samford (guitar/vocals), Brian Holcomb (guitar/vocals/theremin), John Smith (bass), and Chris Stewart (drums) formed Telestrion in the fall of 2006 following the demise of Qualone.

Temple of the Smoke - ...Against Human Race (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art Temple of the Smoke - ...Against Human Race (IMPORT) (CD)



Despite its explicitly menacing title, Temple of the Smoke's ...Against Human Race happens to be quite a playful piece of work. With an entertainingly tidy and perfectly arranged instrumental fusion of numerous musical styles and ideas, TOTS defy every attempt to pigeonhole them as one thing or another. The best approach is probably to abandon all categories and go with the flow. But if you still need to classify this music, call it space rock with the infusion of prog, acid-psyche, reggae, dub, kraut-rock, doom, stoner, and experimental electronic elements. Each song can stand on its own, but when digested as one, it works in the manner of a concept album which gets darker and heavier in its second half. Spicy, evocative, and hypnotic, ...Against Human Race is an unpredictably adventurous record inspired by various sci-fi novels and movies.

Thalamus - Subterfuge (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art Thalamus - Subterfuge (IMPORT) (CD)



While many '70s inspired stoner bands with a grunge component shift more towards the alternative rock in their development, Thalamus is going back to their early roots. The debut album ‘Beneath A Dying Sun’ was a mix of The Quill, Spiritual Beggars and Soundgarden, with some basic elements of Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. This next album ‘Subterfuge’ contains a decreasing influence of the '90s, replaced by more Blue Cheer and Cream-like stuff, which is a sound maybe even more fitting for the guys. This is an absolute must for everyone into high-quality heavy, '70s inspired rock with balls.

The Saint James Society - Self Titled (CD EP) Cover Art The Saint James Society - Self Titled (CD EP)



Like a switchblade hypnotist with an Edgar Allen Poe mind, The Saint James Society taunt you with their beat. A tell-tale rhythm that drives the entire EP so that the acid drone and dark fuzz of its pulsing quartet trip, equal parts style and sound will surely find favour with fans of Black Mountain, Quest for Fire, The Black Angels, and The Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, as well as restless sinners and the terminally cool.
