Biography

Led by brothers Dallas and Travis Good, the Toronto-based Sadies honed a distinctive sound, taking influence from traditional country, surf music, and garage rock. After earning notice and adding backing singer Neko Case, the group issued their debut LP, Precious Moments, in 1998. Tremendous Efforts followed in early 2001, teaming them with Breeders/PJ Harvey producer Steve Albini for the second time. A year later, Stories Often Told marked their first album without Albini, placing Blue Rodeo’s Greg Keelor in his position. The Sadies produced themselves on 2004’s Favourite Colours, with Keelor, Nick Luca, and Chris Shreenan-Dyck handling the engineering duties; Robyn Hitchcock made a guest appearance as vocalist and lyricist on one track. The Sadies have also recorded albums in collaboration with R&B legend Andre Williams and Mekons frontman Jon Langford. The Sadies released a live album, In Concert, Vol. 1, in 2006. They also collaborated on the album Going Out With Heavy Trash w/ Jon Spencer

    I've grown obsessed with these guys. Suffice to say that I've enjoyed their studio recordings. I've listened to all but two or three of them. Should order them soon. Definitely was not let down.

    Saw these guys live yesterday. They were amazing, so I bought a few of their records. Haven't listened to the records yet, but I'm looking forward to it.

    “The Quiet One” at no. 9 and unplayable? A shame... this is a slow burning, sad and beautiful gem.
