WHERE FROM:
Seattle, Washington

WHERE NOW:
They broke up in 1997. Members went on to Hog Molly and Owls.

DATE FORMED:
1987

HOW FORMED:
Doyle and Danielson met at a Christian potluck dinner. The rest of the band was recruited after a successful audition.

HIGHLIGHT:
They were the last Seattle band from the late ’80s to be signed to a major label. When a controversial album poster for the album “Inhaler” was released, featuring a picture of Bill Clinton smoking a joint and saying “This is heavy shit,” they were dropped from the label.

“Being a part of the TAD experience is like waking up in the middle of a train wreck, or like turning over to slap the button on your snooze bar and realizing you have no arms. Look around you; nothing but ashes and molten slag; you’re in the hypercenter of something big. Something that thinks, moves, and destroys.” Xoom.com profile
