TADA has played with bands such as Blonde Redhead, Ultra Bide, Cibo Matto, Russell Simins (Jon Spencer Blues Explosion) band, Jimi Tenor & many more… Now working with Chin Chin, Marianne & few others… playing whatever the instruments projects require… (You can check http://retada.com for more discography.)
This album includes a Latin funk metal anthem like "APOCALYPSE", Japanese dub with feel of Midwest grunge meets Beatles like "BEAUTIFUL DAY",
Space rock'n'roll of "HIGHWAY HYPNOSIS", almost haunted Nuvo dub pop of "SMOKIN' THE DUST". Album is almost like a nonstop sound-track.
At the show, TADA starts out the sound with his suitcase full of gadgets, and all the sudden he would grab a pair of drum sticks and starts to bang on the drumset then next thing you know, he is back on the suitcase with his guitar on his shoulder and go to the next song. With some songs, he would only have a microphone and just concentrate on singing. Then drum solo, guitar solo... Don't miss this one man multi-instrument experimental stadium rock band!!!
ENJOY THE CD!
Let RETADA take you to a SONIC ODYSSEY !!
