Gnarly 90’s alt-rock / grunge band TAD are, it has been decided, due a reappraisal and reissue campaign. So Sub Pop have stepped up to the mark! 8-Way Santa, produced by Bruce Vig, was released in 1991, prime time for grunge. Both CD and LP editions are rounded out with some bonus tracks, taken from a 7”, an EP and some demos.

6/10 Stephen Customer review, 1st November 2016

“8 Way Santa” probably contains Tad’s best songs. Originally released in 1991 at the height of the grunge phenomenon, it was a good fit at the time, although it got lost in Nirvana’s comparative hugeness. Opener “Jinx” is nice bit of grunge that seems to stand up well enough to reappraisal 25 years later. “Jack Pepsi” also stands out but the album’s best moment is “3D Witch Hunt”. The rest is a bit forgettable really for me these days, although it does have its grunge chops firmly in place. One of the best things about this album was its original cover, a photo of a couple which was used without consent and had to be withdrawn after legal action.
