dada w. Ghost Towns Of The West and The Reckless

In 1992, dada exploded on the scene with their critically acclaimed debut release, Puzzle (#2 Billboard's Heatseeker Chart) on Miles Copeland's now defunct, I.R.S. Records. The single "Dizz Knee Land", (#5 on Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart), set the alternative radio movement – just then hitting it's stride – on fire, and quickly migrated to mainstream rock and pop stations. Mark Brown of The Rocky Mountain News recently wrote, dada "burst onto the national scene with the single ' Dizz Knee Land' in 1992 and followed it up with a solid series of albums and a strong following…" The third single "Dim", (#24 on Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart), further solidified dada's reputation as a band to watch. Puzzle sold over a half million copies and made a number of critics "best of year" lists. Sixteen months of constant touring followed, both as headliners on the club circuit and as openers for Sting, Izzy Stradlin & the Ju Ju Hounds and Material Issue (USA), Crowded House (UK), and Depeche Mode (Portugal). September 1994 saw the release American Highway Flower (#5 Billboard's Heatseeker Chart) — which had a harder feel, both musically and lyrically, than it's predecessor reflecting the band's evolution from a studio to a touring band. The single, "All I Am," spent 8 weeks on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks Chart. Money problems at I.R.S. cut short promotional efforts in February 1995. Dada fared no better with their third release, El Subliminoso in April 1996. I.R.S. Records was on its last legs by this time, and folded just as the band was winding up the first leg of the tour. The exquisite , El Subliminoso was perhaps the group's most artistically complex and satisfying offering.

Ghost Towns of the West

"With its widescreen songs, beefy production and ace musicianship — the lineup includes a terrific saxophone player — the album sounds like an old-fashioned major-label production, not the first fruits of a young band. Expect to hear more from these guys." - Ross Raihala, Pioneer Press

"Judging by my initial listening reactions, Ghost Towns of the West qualify as a true find filling an under-served niche on the local scene. Their 6 track debut EP was recorded this past December at Ed Ackerson's renowned Flowers Studio, and it's a smoky and haunted affair with more than a bit of the Doors dark mojo in its lithe keyboard lines." - Rob Van Alstyne, Twin Cities Metromix

"I hesitate to call this a guitar album because of the brilliant mix of instruments throughout the six tracks that makeup up the self-titled debut from Ghost Towns of the West... They also demonstrate the same respect for Neil Young’s influence on grunge music that Pearl Jam championed most notably on 'Tall Green Grass' which pairs Young influenced rhythm guitar with McCready influenced lead guitar." - David Stein, Listener's Guild

“It's almost an aural diary with some of the most complex, mind-blowing music you'll ever hear backing it... A stunning, super-memorable collection of songs." - Tom Hallett, ‘Round The Dial Magazine
