Debuting in 1986 with Eddie Hacksaw on WKDU with the ever-popular cassette "Nazis ate Granny's Gladiolas", TAD was featured on the now legendarily defunct RAVE Records label on the "Discpan Hands" compilation in 1987, and the self-released "Pizza" EP in 1988. TAD gigged regularly all over the eastern half of the US, and appeared regularly as the house darlings of Club Revival (Revive-Hell) in Philadelphia, where the "Lotsa Fun" cassette was recorded.
The band broke up in a blaze of glory in 1989 when everybody finally figured out they were sick of each other. Subsequently, John Manhardt served a three year prison term for the murder of Ken Kramar, until evidence was shown in appeals that Ken wasn't dead, just a very low key individual. Rich Hoak has performed with many bands, including the Grindcore mega-freight-train, Brutal Truth and currently TFD. David embarked on a journey of self-discovery in Thailand; both the drug trafficking and sex charges were ultimately dropped, enabling Dave to return home to Philadelphia. Keith moved to Brooklyn in the early 90's... having spent 5 years at the bottom of the East River, he finally surfaced in Philly after his cement shoes loosened.
