Grunge rockers XAD (eXtreme Attention Disorder) have trouble staying in tune - the vocals are an acquired taste - but their fierce DIY approach has its charms. Their new EP A Distorted World History aims high, gets of the ground and goes down in flames.
The Swedish-Dutch band who have made Haarlem their homebase, a city that is mostly associated with clean cut people with a near perfect command of the Dutch language, but if you look more closely also a safe haven for a lively underground scene. XAD in its various lineups is one of the loudest voices. They sound dirty and don't care if you like them, because somebody else will.
Ted Egger: vocals, guitar Klaus Mertens: drums
Alessandro Prenci: bass
