We first saw The Sadies when they backed up Neko Case at Lounge Ax in 1998. She kept saying she had the best band of tree-like men in the world playing with her. Once we got our jaws off the beer-soaked floor, deals were made. We went back to Rob's place and listened to Coasters and Tarheel Slim records all night. Our love was cemented.
We like The Sadies because they can play ANYTHING better than anyone else. Surf, cool cowboy psychedelia, electric bluegrass, spaghetti western soundscapes, garage punk, whatever. They do it and do it the SADIES way. We also like their funny Canadian accents. We like the way they are always shrouded in smoke and the way the stage lights play off their shiny suits. Fronted by the brothers Good, Dallas and Travis, who sing, play guitars (sometimes each others), fiddles and whatnot with lightning dexterity and skill, the Sadies will astound you with how impossibly easy they make it all look.
