SADO NATION - Future Past, Present, Tense:
FUTURE PAST, PRESENT, TENSE provides exactly as stated, as it is an EP
compilation of music from Sado Nationís 20+ year history. The bandís
fast and hard driving music does not vary much in style, but Sado
Nationís evolution is best represented in lyrics which go from youthful
rage to a more introspective look back in time with the intensely
addictive "16 again", a track lifted from the bandís THE TEAL PROJECT
EP. The best thing about Sado Nation, which makes this compilation worth
a listen, are the lead vocals of both Flipside magazines 1984 female
vocalist of the year Mish Bondage and, in later EP tracks, David Corboy.
Corboy, a senior citizen of Northwest punl who formed his first band in
1963, can do the hard vocals better than most, but also has a voice
sweet enough to give edgy songs like "insomnia insomniac" a hard,
ballad-like quality. Also included in FUTURE PAST, PRESENT, TENSE are
four previously unreleased live recordings from 1983.
