go order their record right now). ADD/C started in Chattanooga, TN at a time where new bands either played together for years upon years or played one show and broke up the next day. I pegged ADD/C for the latter, but they really proved me wrong. Since then, I have seen them play huge fests, small basements to almost no one, in public parks, and under bridges. Every time, they have been great...even during their famed "endurance test" shows, which is when they keep playing the show until every single person has left the room. I heard that they played at Anarchtica (a punk house in Chattanooga) once for 3 solid hours until the last wasted person finally went outside. Once, someone complained to me, while they were playing, about how ADD/C played every local show and did the same songs every time. After telling them to start their own band so we would have more local bands to choose from, I explained that ADD/C was better than most of the other bands in other cities and we should consider ourselves lucky to be able to scream along to their songs every week...plus, we would really miss them when they are gone. He thought about it for a second and then went right up to the front of the room to sing and dance to ADD/C.
This tape was recorded by Mike Pack in a garage in North Chattanooga, (maybe) in early 2000 and (probably) on a soon-to-be-broken 4 track. The rest of the details are fuzzy. If ADD/C ever makes it to your town, please go see them. You will not regret it. Better yet, ask them to play one of these songs and see if hilarity ensues when they forget how to play it.

Thanks to Cole and Daniel for fuzzy details.
I just realized that I didn't even explain what they sound like, but you can just download the tape and figure it out for yourself.
