Biography

Canada's finest live band, The Sadies, have reunited with explicit soul singer/cult legend Andre Williams for Night & Day, set for release May 15, 2012 on Yep Roc records. Night & Day is the result of sessions that began in 2008 at Key Club Studio in Detroit and captures Andre, then 70 years old and still using at the time, at his most raw, honest, and immediate. No filter. Andre ... Read more in Amazon's The Sadies Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Amazon.com

The Sadies are the Minutemen of insurgent country, at least to the extent that so many of their songs are about that long. Split roughly fifty-fifty between instrumentals and vocal tracks, the 20-song, Steve Albini-produced Precious Moments swings between a kind of solid (if predictable) surf-'n'-spaghetti-western twang--often reminiscent of Shadowy Men from a Shadowy Planet--and raging punk rock. Usually the instrumental moments here are what come nearest to precious, since the voice of frontman Dallas Good is about as rough as you'd expect from a band that doesn't sing but half the time. On the other hand, when this Toronto four-piece slows it down (on the drinking song "Wrap Around") or cuts loose completely (the searingly lo-fi "Barbarosa"), Good's unschooled squall makes perfect emotional sense. --David Cantwell

I first saw the Sadies outside of a bar after a hockey game in downtown Nashville. I bought their cd as soon as I could and I've been listening to it ever since. This is the most schizophrenic mix of surf, hillbilly, punk, garage and psychobilly that I've ever heard and I really dig it. Everyone I played this for can't believe that the same band is doing such a diverse mix of songs. I am reminded of the La's cd where every song on the cd was different. VIVA LA DIFFERENCE !

This is craziest best new type of music to come out recently. I have a ton of their music and it is wild. I was never a country fan, and never thought that I would purchase something that is sometimes sold in the country section.. but here I am! It is a wild newgrass, bluegrass, country, surf-music ride through indie rock. Totally different, it blew me away. Totally happy music and a great show in person!

Debut records by little known bands are often dismissed or overlooked until said little known bands get...well, more well known! Such is the case with Toronto's Sadies' debut record "Precious Moments" (Blood Shot BS 034). I first heard the punk-a-billy sound of the Sadies live in 2000 and then promptly bought "Pure Diamond Gold" simply because most of the songs I had heard live were on that 1999 record. Only this summer did I fill in the gaps in my Sadies collection, and boy their first one is a wild one! The Sadies, of late have refined and expanded their unique brand of alt.country cow-punk to include more folk, bluegrass, psychedelic and blues styles (Check out 2002's "Stories Often Told" and 2004's "Favourite Colours"). "Precious Moments", however, contains the blueprint for the Sadies' signature live sound...brash guitars alternately revved up and slowed down, weird almost indecipherable vocals ("Barbarosa"), and guest appearances by some talented musicians (check out a young Neko Case on "Cowhand"). This one would get five stars but for the fact that it's too one dimensional. The guys in 1998, were fleshing out their sound and they got that down very 'good'. This is one heck of a great guitar album with echoes of Dick Dale and the classic 60's era surf tunes like "Pipeline". "Precious Moments" unfortunately, is short on developed lyrical ideas and themes. However, fear not hombre, for the Sadies would more than make up for such deficiencies on later "tremendous" efforts. "Precious Moments" nicely showcases their raw and manic instrumental virtuosity and it is a sonic pleasure in and of itself.
