Once upon a time (the mid 1990’s to be exact), a terminally cool band from Texas released one of the most unorthodox (and did I mention COOL?) rock CD’s I think I’ve ever heard with the hit that wouldn’t die, Possum Kingdom.
When they submitted their follow up disc to their label , Interscope, around 1997 it was rejected.
Yep. And it never saw the light of day until a year or so ago.
For the life of me, after listening to the long-awaited release of that follow-up disc Feeler I don’t know what Interscope was thinking. This was every bit as good as their debut disc Rubberneck, and I’ll never understand it being rejected.
Proudly unorthodox as all of Toadies discs are, it’s a joy to finally be able to crank these songs and bask in the glow of some great modern rock. This song is my personal favorite from Feeler and is one of my 2 or 3 favorite songs they’ve ever done.
It just rocks relentlessly. I love Toadies! Love ’em, too, and enjoy Abysmally…
