8-Way Santa [Deluxe Edition] [Slipcase]


Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Tad: Tad Doyle (vocals, guitar); Gary Thorstenson (guitar); Kurt Danielson (bass, vocals); Steve Wied (drums).
  • Recorded at Smart Sudios, Madison, Wisconsin.
  • An album so ferocious that it had to be defanged of both its mischievous original cover and one of its best song titles ("Jack Pepsi," rechristened just "Jack"), 8-WAY SANTA placed the mighty Tad on the grunge-metal map. Fronted by hefty singer/guitarist Tad Doyle, the Seattle act lumbers through this bold offering, presenting hard-hitting tunes such as "Giant Killer" and "Trash Truck," sounding like a more straightforward, backwoods version of the Melvins. Although SANTA has its moodier moments (the brooding "Candi" and "3-D Witch Hunt"), it's mainly content to charge ahead with gleeful malice, easily making it one of Tad's finest outings.
Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly (4/5/91) - A- - "...inspired manic roar..."
