The Wades – Greatest Hits (2005)


  • Punk rock 
  • Post-punk 
  • Alternative rock 
  • Indie rock 
  • Americana 
  • DIY

Comment: similarly to other genres there is difference between punk and punk. Between tedious and interesting punk. The Wades' 13-notch issue (which is obviously the oeuvre of the group) is the latter case because of providing at times humorous interludes, stubborn DIY aesthetic and frequently borderline punk/indie numbers where one can discern the influences of roots music thereof being unmistakably American. The accomplishment of these ideas is a cut above as well. At times being loosely noisy and anarchistic like Sonic Youth, at times being politically poignant, however, revealing its thick cultural layers being set up on one another. The only exception is New Direction, a song being written by Gorilla Biscuits. Last but not least – the issue was released on such label as Comfort Stand Recordings which had been a platform for innovative and uncompromising sound in the first half of the 00s. In a word, get the legacy of this great combo of Alicia Wade, and Chris Wade.
